How to care for your plant?
This plant is easy to maintain and look after. When you receive your new plant, soak in a bucket of water for 30 minutes and then plant to the same depth as the soil level in the pot. Water regularly until established. We recommend adding fertilizer when planting, ideal are bone meal or Fish Blood & Bone.
In early spring, cut away any diseased, damaged or unwanted growth. Prune back in March - April before the plant begins to grow in spring. They can be cut back hard. Mulch up in November for added protection from the cold winters.
