Cultivation & Habitat

Seed – sow spring in a greenhouse. Only just cover the seed. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Cuttings of half-ripe wood, 5 – 8cm with a heel, July/August in a frame. Overwinter in a cold frame and plant out in late spring[78]. Cuttings of mature wood, 5 – 8cm preferably with a heel, October/November in a cold frame. High percentage. Plant out in late spring[78].
Succeeds in a sunny position in most well-drained soils[200]. Very tolerant of maritime exposure[11, 29]. This species is not very hardy in Britain, tolerating temperatures down to about -5¡c, and succeeding outdoors only in the mildest parts of the country[200].
