Provide enriched, well-drained soil. Water deeply, regularly during first few growing seasons to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Feed before new spring growth appears. Thin heavy crops in early summer to prevent breakage or damage. Prune as needed to remove dead or damaged wood, or maintain smaller size.
