    Care Instructions

    Water as required for 8-13 weeks until established, needs water in summer. Plant in a well mulched garden (chunky mulch is recommended), do not cover base of plant with mulch or soil. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Remove older foliage as required or every 2-5 years cut back to half the height (will look better with pruning every 2 years, this depends on your requirements).
