Plant Information

Top Tips

Easy to grow, Grevillea prefers acid to neutral soil in full sun and will even tolerate poor soil as long as it drains well - although they do hate being wet and waterlogged.

Care Guide

Planting Advice for your Grevillea:

  • Grevillea prefers acid to neutral soil in full sun and will even tolerate poor soil as long as it drains well - although they do hate being wet and waterlogged.
  • Water your potted plant well.
  • Dig a hole a little deeper and 3 x wider than the nursery pot.
  • Add a soil conditioner such as well-rotted manure to the earth removed from the hole if necessary.
  • Remove the plant from its pot and tease out a few of the roots.
  • Place your plant in the hole at the same level at the pot.
  • Refill the hole with the earth removed (backfilling).
  • Firm in the soil with your heel, avoiding the root ball.
  • Water well and mulch around the base of the plant with a collar, compost, gravel, bark etc.


 

Aftercare advice for Mount Tamboritha:

  • Hardy in coastal and relatively mild parts of the UK, where it can be grown outdoors in acid to neutral, well-drained soil. Otherwise grow in a pot with ericaceous compost with added grit in full light.
  • Apply low phosphate, liquid fertiliser monthly when in growth.
  • Plant can withstand temperatures down to -5C (23F) so winter protection may be necessary if temperatures fall below this.

 

Pruning Advice for Grevillea:

  • Pruning should be unnecessary, although you can trim plants to restrict height and spread.
