Provide organically rich, well-drained, acidic soil. Keep roots cool with a thick layer of mulch. Water deeply and regularly during the first growing season to establish an extensive root system; reduce frequency, once established. Feed with an acid fertilizer after flowering. Fertilize sparingly to prevent leggy, unattractive growth.
