Grafted these a few seasons ago now, the youngest is the Caespitose which was 2 years ago I think, the others a little bit longer.








Little one on the right was done for a bit of fun in summer this year.

Wow!

Those are impressive plants for sure. They all look incredibly lush and healthy, with none of the dreaded mite scarring to be seen. What can you share with us about their growing conditions. Any hints or tips for the rest of us?

Hey Lachy,

Nothing really special going on with my growing, I grow them under cover so they only get wet when I water them. I also periodically add a fungicide, pesticide and ferts to my watering schedule. Probably the same as most people I guess.

As for mites I have found Sulphor is good to keep them at bay, if you have an infestation Sulphor won't get rid of them but it will stop them using your nice plant as a home and find else where to live. If you are having mite problems try a miticide, I have used them in the past and they work well.
