Growing Tips


Best planted in full sun in very free-draining soil.


Dig a hole twice as deep and twice as wide as the pot that your tree came in. Backfill your hole and mix in a few spadefuls of compost.
If heavier soils (clay) mix in pumice sand and gypsum to help improve the drainage. In some spots it may be worth planting into a slight mound to further improve drainage.


Water occasionally over the drier months. Give them enough space to ensure they stay open and ger air flow. Weed regularly and mulch to help suppress weeds and reduce watering needs.

After Care

Help prevent pests and diseases by thoroughly spraying trees in winter with Freeflo Copper and Aquaticus Glow.


Rarely requires feeding. At most feed with a half-strength mix of a natural liquid feed such as Ocean Grow once a year.


Prune back bracts to a healthy looking bud once they have passed their best or prune them off and use them as cut flowers.
