Pseudopanax, an architectural plant from New Zealand, can be a welcome addition to a home garden. The plant needs excellent drainage so it is best to plant it on a slope or mound and use lots of grit in the soil. This is vital for all slightly tender plants because winter wet at the roots kills far more plants than cold air. It is also best to plant in late spring or early summer in a sheltered, sunny or partly sunny site.
