|Description||This plant tolerates poor soil and brak (salty) water, sea winds and salt spray; but in these situations will look at its best if it receives some shelter from fierce winds, is planted with lots of added organic matter, and is watered regularly. Myrtle is not suited to very humid regions. It grows in most well-drained garden soils including chalk, clay, sand, and loam soils; tolerating acid, alkaline and neutral soils; iron chlorosis (yellowing of the leaves) will develop in highly alkaline soil conditions. Although it tolerates heat and drought, it will look at its best in the garden if it is watered regularly in hot, dry regions. Plant it in full sun or very light shade. Propagation is by seed or semi-hardwood cuttings taken in summer. Look for new growth that has started to firm up and choose non-flowering shoots if possible (otherwise remove the buds). Plant into a 50% cent mixture of sand and compost, and place the cuttings out of direct sunlight. Rooting should take approximately 6 to 12 weeks. Pot up individually in gritty compost and overwinter in a sheltered, frost-free place until the following spring before planting out into the garden.|
