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.

Water regularly

Water several times a week during the growing season.

Full sun

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

Fertile, well-drained soil

Loam or sandy soil is perfect. You should also consider digging in some organic matter/ compost when planting to improve the soil.

Feed in spring

Apply a general purpose fertiliser when growth starts in the spring. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0513/3428/3424/files/pruning_3x_4d3eaf73-f629-45e0-87a5-6f14f5f005fc.png?v=1613300718
