Plant in any free draining damp soil sheltered from strong winds. In early spring feed with a liquid food with a high nitrogen content, this will not only promote new growth but will also give the older foliage a boost after the dormant months. In summer a slow release fertiliser is preferable. Always ensure the plant has an adequate water supply especially when planted in a container.
