    Default Been given a rather large Cordyline ?

    I think I have been given a cordyline ? I'm not 100% sure thats what it is to be honest, it has some good roots on, its about 5 foot tall and was wondering if there is anything I should consider before I plant it tomorrow ? Thanks guys and gals

    Where did it come from and does it need hardening off?

    You could grow it in a pot or in the garden. Hopefully it has plenty of soil left on the rootball!

    Basically dig a hole, add some bone meal and plant it up to the same depth it was planted at!

    Give it a good watering as well. You could stake it but if the rootball is big enough it may not need it!

    Perfect, thank you so much for such a swift reply.. I can see I'm going to be spending a lot of time on here over the coming months. I have alsorts planned for the garden, putting it all into action may take a little longer.. If I want to ask questions about basket planting and summer flowers (not annuals but the ones that come back every year what's the best section as I put this question in the wrong place
