Cultural care

Grows well in most soil types which are moist but well draining. Give some protection from strong afternoon sun during summer. Prune during late summer to increase performance in autumn and to promote dense habit. Apply a slow release fertiliser during early spring or after pruning. Mulch well to help retain moisture during dry periods.
