Care

Plant in a well-drained sunny position adding Yates Hydrangea Pinking Liquid Lime & Dolomite and Yates Blood & Bone to the soil before planting. Water regularly and apply Yates Thrive Soluble Plant Good weekly. Make successive sowings every few weeks. Water at base of plant, rather than overhead, to minimise risk of disease.
