    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).

    Ensure crown or base of plant is not below soil level. If required use slow release fertiliser in spring. Remove older foliage as required or every 5-7 years cut back to half the height (will look better with pruning every 5 years, this depends on your requirements).
