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
Easily grown in average, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Prune to shape in late winter. Feed in early spring. After a flowering flush, trim the plant by half to encourage continued flowering and a denser habit.
