Plant in a hole twice the diameter of the root-ball or pot. Mix a general fertiliser with the infill soil. Water regularly until  established. Plant 1.5m (5ft) apart in rows  3-4m (6ft) apart.

After Care

Mulch yearly with well rotted compost or manure to retain moisture and suppress weeds.  After planting, prune all stems back to 5cm (2in) above the ground.  In later years remove about 25% of the stems to encourage new growth from the base.
