Plant Pieris in moderately fertile, rich, well drained and acidic soil. Alternatively grow Pieris plants in large patio containers using a mix of ericaceous compost and John Innes No.3. Choose a position in sun or part shade.
Pieris requires little maintenance. After flowering, lightly prune out any dead or damaged growth and trim to maintain a pleasing shape. Whilst your Pieris plants are young, they may require some winter protection.
