Homeowner Growing & Maintenance

If needed, prune to shape in late winter. It holds its tight, dense shape so heavy pruning is rarely needed. Fertilize with a controlled release fertilizer in spring. Supplemental fertilizing with liquid fertilizer may be needed in summer. Tolerates damp soils. To give your plant the best start possible, we include a free fertilizer packet.
