Looking after your Campsis Madame Galen
Campsis Madame Glen is generally maintenance free, preferring moist but well drained soil in a sheltered, sunny position against a wall or trellis or could be trained over an arbour or pergola, grows well in shade but full sun will ensure excellent colourful flowers.
In Spring apply a good layer of mulch around the base of the plant to help keep the soil moist during the Summer months, at the same time giving a good feed of general purpose slow release fertilizer to help promote new growth in the coming season. Any pruning required should be done during the dormant season, late Autumn/early Spring before any buds are formed.
