Cultural Notes: Full sun to shade. Suits most, well drained soil types. Tolerates cold and dry. 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 twice yearly for a very tidy hedge or every 2-3 years as a wider screen plant. Natural Pysllid resistance makes it unlikely to have this problem. Information & Images courtesy of Ozbreed
