Easily grown in deep, loamy, humus-rich, well-drained soil, but quite adaptable. Water deeply, regularly in first growing season to establish root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with an organic fertilizer from spring to midsummer. Provide sturdy trellis or arbor support. Prune annually to control size.
