If you want to use fertilizer, choose a well-balanced fertilizer during the vegetative period. No pruning necessary, but remove dead or damaged leaves.

    Well packed and arrived in excellent condition. Roots were healthy and not root bound like some nursery plants. I planted them the day they arrived and they are doing well. We had some cold nights recently and they tolerated it well with just a little burnishing on a few leaves.
    And the availability and price were great.

    I’ll definitely continue to purchase from your company in the future.
