Care Guide

Excellent pest and disease resistance

Generally Cistus Creticus is trouble free when it comes to pests and diseases.MORE

Water lightly

To begin with

Full Sun

Cistus Creticus needs a sheltered position in full Sun for the best flower production.MORE

Fertile well-drained soil

Will prefer well-drained soil that is also fertile. Mix in plenty of organic matter such as quality garden compost along with perlite if your soil is particularly clay-heavy or waterlogged. Avoid very alkaline soils which will give the plant a nutrient deficiency.MORE

Feed lightly

Apply a general purpose liquid feed after flowering but avoid nitrogen rich fertilisers.MORE

Prune lightly

After flowering
