How to Plant

'Pretty Polly' can live in either a sheltered or exposed spot. Adding fertiliser and a new layer of mulch in spring will help it stay in good condition. Collect up the leaves as they fall in late autumn, to keep your plant healthy. The addition of mycorrhizal fungi to the roots when you're first planting will encourage growth.
