Care Guide

Good pest and disease resistance

Generally free of pests and diseases. Can suffer from Phytophthora or root rot. Soggy, poorly drained soil and excess moisture are to blame for this - a disease that is easy to spot by reddish brown roots and crowns. The disease is prevented by proper moisture management. MORE

Water regularly

Water several times a week during the growing season.MORE

Full sun

Position where your plants will receive sunlight for more than 6 hours each day during the spring/summer.MORE

Fertile, well-drained, slightly acidic soil

XXXXMORE

Feed in spring

Apply a general purpose fertiliser when growth starts in the spring.MORE

Prune annually

Prune after flowering, taking side shoots back to 3-4 buds from the permanent framework.MORE
