When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw. Let's grow the The Honey-flower in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the The Honey-flower with non-woven fabric.

Feed Honey-flower
To obtain a florid development it is important to remember to fertilize our shrubs periodically; in the spring letís use a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, which will favour the development of new vegetation and of flowerings. We can intervene at the end of the winter, mixing a good dose of slow release organic fertilizer to the soil surrounding our plant. During the spring it is also possible to act periodically, with liquid or powder fertilizers, to add to the water when irrigating, every 20-25 days.
