They cannot tolerate competition from weeds and other plants, but a mulch of small stones helps minimize such pests. The plants need well-drained soil that is rich in organic amendment.

Young plants should be watered every few days while establishing but irrigation can diminish thereafter and no supplemental water is needed in fall and winter.
