Homeowner Growing Tips: Best grown in partial shade, in moist, well-drained, neutral to slightly acidic soil. Amend with compost before planting. Avoid windy sites. Water regularly the first year to establish. Apply general purpose fertilizer periodically throughout the growing season. Does better in cool climates than in the heat and humidity of the deep South.
