Care Information

Planting Advice:

  • Grow Phormiums in a sunny, sheltered site in well-drained soil. Protect from frost and winds.
  • Dig a planting hole three times wider than the roots and mix some well-rotted compost or manure with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once in place.
  • We've found that a square hole is better than a round one as the new roots, once they reach the edges, tend to grow in a circle round the circumference of the hole whereas when they reach the corners of a square hole, they find it easier to grow through.
  • Before planting, soak container-grown nursery plants thoroughly and allow them to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots to help the plant to establish quicker.
  • Place in the hole at the same level as it was supplied in the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling). Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and then water well.
  • Mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.
  • If you're planting into pots, place some old rocks, stones, or gravel in the bottom of the pot for drainage and ballast.
  • Use the best compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

Aftercare Advice:

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Phormiums require no special pruning; only occasional maintenance is needed to remove any growth that has been damaged over winter.
