Plant in an open sunny spot in a moist acid, but well-drained soil.  Can also be successfully grown in pots with ericaceous compost.

Planting

Soak the root-ball before planting.  Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot.  Mix an organic soil improver and general fertiliser with the infill soil.  Water regularly with lime-free water until established.

Aftercare
