Planting & Care
When you’re ready to plant your New Zealand, dig a hole that’s about one and a half to two times the size of your plant’s root ball, place the plant in the hole, back fill the soil and water to settle the roots.
2. Watering: Once established, your New Zealand is drought tolerant and thrives in cooler coastal regions, but it’s important to have a regular watering schedule for the first few growing seasons. Water about once weekly or more often in extreme heat and check the surrounding soil…if the surrounding soil is dry 2 or 3 inches down, it’s time to water your plant.
3. Pruning: Remove any old or damaged foliage from your New Zealand Flax as needed for a neater, tidy appearance.
