Answer: Hi Karyn,

Thank you for contacting Yates.

All of these plants are hard wearing so don’t require to much watering. To assist with overall health we recommend to only water the plants to keep the soil lightly moist. A deep watering once or twice a week maybe all that is required to achieve this.

We would recommend that you regularly check your soil prior to watering. If the soil is wet, then avoid giving it further moisture. If the soil is dry a big drink is needed.

To further assist your plants and to promote strong healthy growth, we recommend feeding every 6-8 weeks with Dynamic Lifter Soil Improver & Plant Fertiliser. Ensure that after you apply this product it is watered in well.

Kind regards,

Yates Horticulturist
