Growing Calendar for Luma Myrtus apiculata Glanleam Gold 2L Shrub x1
Delivery: Early October to Late March
A shrub with bags of features to please you throughout the year. In winter marvel at its attractively peeling, cinnamon-coloured bark and neat, cream-margined small leaves. In spring new leaves appear tinged with pink. Small white flowers then appear in both spring and late summer with berries forming in autumn.
What’s more flowers and leaves are fragrant! An all-year-round beautiful plant.
Receiving your plant
Dig a hole that’s large enough to fit the entire root mass without any roots being broken, bent or emerging from the surface. It basically needs to be deep enough to entirely cover the roots all the way up to the soil mark on the stem.
Use a granular fertiliser to give the planting hole a boost before planting.
Position the plant into the planting hole (making sure it’s straight and upright) and fill back in with the dug-out soil.
Firm down the soil around the base of the rose gently with your hands. Give the plant a good soak with water straight away after planting. Surround the plant with a mulch of bulky compost or manure to give it a good feed and insulate the very active roots.
Shrubs offer visual interest all year round – whether in full leaf, full bloom or with bare stems set against the winter sky.
If you want to add height to your garden and increase the vertical interest consider planting a tree in your garden. There are trees particularly suited for gardens which don’t grow out of proportion to your property or develop too thick a canopy that blocks out sunlight.
