Essentials for Success

For flourishing plants, use potting soil for potted plants or planting mix for garden beds paired with Root Zone starter fertilizer is the perfect duo to foster robust root growth and minimize transplant shock.


Planting & Growing
Provide enriched, slightly acidic soil. Sun tolerant, but best sheltered from harsh sunlight in hot summer areas. Water regularly during first growing season to establish deep, extensive root system. Feed with an acid fertilizer before new growth begins in spring. Mulch to conserve moisture. Easily kept at 3 to 4 ft. tall. Prune annually, after flowering.
