  • Notes From The Garden

    ...

    Only the juvenile/new foliage produces the tight rounded foliage, harvest reguarly to retain the iconic foliage. 

     

    Don't forget these are actually trees - if left unpruned these will mature into full sized trees over several years. Either treat as annual every few years, or be prepared to coppice the trees. 

     

    Seeds can be slow to germinate taking upto 45 days

     

    Protect young seedlings or trees from heavy frosts
