Amend your garden with compost or peat humus to enrich or loosen the soil, if needed, however Euphorbia are very adaptable to any good, loose, well-draining soil. Mix a couple teaspoons of garden food or bone meal into the planting hole if desired. Plant the roots as listed above, then water in once. They prefer a slightly dry start when they are dormant in spring and have no foliage. Once they are actively growing it is alright to give them supplemental water once a week, if needed.
Euphorbia do not require much moisture, even after they are actively growing. Early season plantings (April and May) and plants that have no foliage should be started on the dry side. During that time we like to water once and then we don’t water again until the foliage has started to emerge, then we water only rarely if the soil is very dry. They are quite drought tolerant once established.
