Fertilizer: During the first growing season (spring/summer), lightly fertilize once a month. For established trees or shrubs, apply a slow-release fertilizer at the first signs of new growth in spring. Following that, apply a light feeding twice a month in spring and summer
Temperature: Hardy, though not heat tolerant of western exposures or temperatures above 115oF.
