Good to know:
- This plant is vulnerable to snow pressure. In snowy areas it is therefore advisable to wrap the branches with a cord. Otherwise, they can unfold and possibly not fully recover. Remember to remove the cords when the snow season is over.
- Use slow-release fertilizers in spring. This releases the nutrients slowly and continuously so that the plant is evenly supplied over a longer period of time.
- Water less frequently, but thoroughly and penetratingly. This encourages the plant roots to penetrate into deeper soil layers and thus survive dry periods better.
