Propagation

Seed - sow late winter in a cold frame. When they are large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter. Plant them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Cuttings in a sandy soil in a cool or slightly warm frame in spring.

Cultivation

Prefers a good loamy soil containing leaf mould[2]. Succeeds in a good open soil but if it is to thrive it needs copious rainfall, high humidity and warmer conditions than are normally found in Britain[3][4]. Plants are hardy but very slow growing in cultivation in Britain[5]. They tolerate temperatures down to about -20°c in one report[4] whilst another says -10°c[6]. A plant at Bedgebury in Kent was 3.3 metres tall in 1985[3].
