Propagation

Seed - sow spring in a greenhouse. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Once the plants are at least 20cm tall, plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Consider giving them some protection from the cold for at least their first winter outdoors.

Cuttings of half-ripe wood, July/August in a frame[8].

Cuttings of mature wood of the current season's growth in early winter[9]. Take cuttings 15 - 30cm long and plant them in pots or the open soil in a greenhouse. They normally root very easily and can be potted up in early summer then planted out late the following spring[K].

Cultivation

Prefers a slightly acid, moderately fertile well-drained soil in full sun with shelter from cold drying winds[6]. Plants grow best in light shade[10].

Plants are only hardy in the milder and moister areas of Britain[9][8], growing well in light woodland[11]. If cut back in severe winters they will often resprout from the sturdier branches[10]. The young growth in spring, even on mature plants, is frost-tender and so it is best to grow the plants in a position sheltered from the early morning sun[K]. In its native New Zealand, this is one of the first plants to colonize areas of cleared woodland or waste ground[10]. Plants do not really require pruning[10].

Dioecious. Male and female plants must be grown if seed is required.
