Cultivation instruction

Plant Indoors: They are at their best when grown outside.

Plant outside: They prefer acidic soils that are organically rich and remain moist. In very heavy soils, just add grit, sand or humus matter to lighten it up. Cultivate soils to a depth of 20cms and add some well rotted manure or granular fertiliser to the soil when cultivating. Plant them 10-15cms below the soil surface and fan out the roots. Cover with soil and firm around the roots to keep them in place. Avoid planting them in areas of heavy shade or in soils that dry out during the summer months. Leave to establish for a few years and protect from winter frosts by covering them in a couple of inches of mulch over winter.
