    Care Instructions

    Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended). If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Prune to shape 1-3 times a year after flowering (this depends on your requirements, more frequent pruning will provide a tidier hedge/shape).
