Planting

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Grow cestrum in a fertile, well-draining, non-alkaline soil in full sun (or partial sun in hot summer regions). In frost-prone areas it will be killed to the ground and resprout in the spring as soil warms. Use it as a large accent shrub in the mixed border or wildlife garden. Its flowers and foliage stems can be used as a cutflower. Give beds and borders a kick start by feeding in spring with a slow release fertiliser, before planting and before plants have put on too much growth. This is known as top dressing.
