Planting young plants

From Early Spring TO Early Spring

Plant in any garden soil, in full sun or partial shade. Provide plenty of moisture whilst the plant settles. Prune by a third on planting. Pinch back when the new shoots are 15cm long to encourage bushiness.

 

Propagation by cuttings

From Late Summer TO Mid Autumn

Semi hard wood cuttings are taken from the current years growth from late summer to mid autumn the bottom of the cuttings is hard and soft on the top. With a sharp knife take a cutting of about 14cms, remove lowest leaves, dip end into rooting hormone, and place round the edge of a pot filled with a suitable compost, water well, they must remain moist till rooted, place under glass but in semi shade.
