Generally pest and disease free, although may be affected by leaf spot, an easy to grow evergreen ornamental shrub in many locations. The Garrya is a low maintenance plant which can benefit from a sunny or partially shaded are, sheltered in all types of garden. They are best planted in a humus rich and well drained soil.
