Watering Notes Weekly watering is needed at planting and until established. Otherwise, water during drought and one deep watering before the ground freezes in winter.
Fertilize Notes Apply a balanced fertilizer yearly in spring or fertilizing can be done organically with materials such as composted manure, bonemeal, and bloodmeal.
Prune Notes Prune 2 weeks after flowering in the summer because buds for the next year are formed in the summer. Remove 1/3 or less of the oldest stems near the base to open up the interior.
