Top Tips

Plants are hardy to -5C so can be affected by frost and we recommend that you either protect with a thick layer of mulch over winter, or alternatively grow it in a container of ericaceous soil and move indoors to overwinter.

Care Information

Planting Advice for your Diosma ericoides 'Pink Fountain':

  • Grow Diosma in a sunny, sheltered site in well-drained, acid soil.  Protect from frost and winds.
  • Dig a planting hole 3 x wider than the roots of the shrub you're planting and mix some well-rotted compost or leafmould with the soil from the hole and use this to re-fill once the shrub is in place.
  • Before planting soak container-grown shrubs thoroughly and allow to drain.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Add Mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when planting to help plants establish quicker.
  • Place your shrub in the hole at the same level at the pot and refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball and 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 ericaceous compost you can buy and some sand or grit for drainage.

Aftercare advice for Diosma 'Pink Fountain':

  • Keep plants well-watered while they establish, especially if planted up in a pot.
  • Hardy to -5C, protect from cold winds as it is these that tend to cause the most damage to young plants.

Pruning Advice for Diosma:

  • This shrub requires no special pruning; only occasional maintenance is needed to remove any growth that has been damaged over winter.
