WHERE TO PLANT: Sunny and warm site required. Soil rich in humus, fertile, moderately moist and of neutral or slightly acidic pH. The cultivar is disease resistant and totally hardy (zone 4–9).
HOW TO PLANT AND MAINTAIN: Before planting immerse the plant container in water for 10-30 min. Place the root ball in a 40 x 40 x 40 cm hole with a 10 cm layer of well-rotten manure or compost, 0.5-1 cm deeper than it was before. Fill the hole with fertile soil. The plants should be spaced at least 30 cm from other plants or from a wall. Prune moderately. To encourage high quality yield, the yearly pruning should be performed (usually in winter, around the second half of February). Does not require frost insulation.
