CARE INFORMATION

Top Tips

Water well during the summer months and protect from winter frost by bringing indoors.

Care Guide

  • Under glass, grow in loam-based potting compost (JI No.3) in full light with shade from hot sun; repot every other year, in spring.
  • In warmer parts of the country for outdoors grow in a sheltered position in humus-rich well-drained soil in full sun.
  • Keep well watered and protect from drying winds which can shred the leaves.
  • During the growing season water regularly and apply a balanced liquid fertiliser each month.
  • Frost tender, so foliage will be blackened. In frost-prone areas lift outdoor specimens before the first frosts, reducing the top-growth to the newest 2 or 3 leaves and cutting back the long roots.
  • Overwinter under glass in a frost-free greenhouse until all risk of frost has passed.
DELIVERY INFORMATION

Our experienced team at the nursery will always carefully package and send your plants nursery fresh in the perfect condition to thrive once you receive and plant them.

We also avoid dispatching orders over Bank Holiday weekends.
