Sarcococcas are very easy to look after, and rarely need much in the way of care and attention once established. Plant in a sheltered position in sun or shade in any moist, but well-drained soil. Water plants well in the first year or so, while they are establishing. Thereafter, plants in the ground are only likely to need watering during prolonged periods of very dry weather, unless the soil is very light and very well-drained. Feed every spring with a balanced fertiliser. Those suitable for Camellias and Rhododendrons are a good choice, especially in alkaline soils. Prune after flowering to maintain shape.
