Cultivation details
Requires a sunny position or light dappled shade[11, 200]. Prefers a highly fertile well-drained loamy soil[11, 200]. This species is only likely to be hardy in the very mildest parts of Britain, requiring a warm sunny corner. One report says that it is not frost tolerant[200], but another gives its native habitat as alpine forests[147], a habitat that would experience frosts[K]. Requires cross-pollination for good fruit production[182]. Plants in this genus are notably resistant to honey fungus[200].
Propagation
Seed - sow February in a greenhouse[78]. Only just cover the seed[138]. Germination usually takes place within 1 - 3 months at 18°c[138]. When large enough to handle, prick the seedlings out into individual pots and grow them on in the greenhouse for at least their first winter, planting them out into their permanent positions in late spring or early summer, after the last expected frosts. Cuttings of half-ripe wood 10cm long, July/August in a frame. High percentage[78]. Cuttings of mature wood of the current season's growth with a heel[78] taken in early spring[200].
