Easily grown in deep, loamy, humus-rich, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; once established, reduce frequency. Fertilize every 6 to 8 weeks until midsummer. Provide trellis or arbor support. Prune annually in winter to control size.
