Where to Site Your Phormium

Phormiums are a real architectural shrub that can be planted in the back of the boarder or as a standalone plant, which makes for a brilliant eye-catching feature.

These are now often being picked by Councils due to the statemen that they create and their stunning all year-round colour.

Phormiums are a wonderful way to attract birds into the garden

How to Grow and Look after your Phormium

Phormiums require full sun in a moist but well drained soil. However, they can grow well in poorer soils providing they are given regular granular feeds of a nitrogen based fertiliser.

Phormiums are greedy plants which grow quickly if they are well fed

They do not need pruning unless you are removing any damaged or dead leaves.

New Zealand Flax may suffer a little leaf damage to the tips if in a particularly windy and exposed site.
