As this plant can grow to a substantial height and width, ensure you plant in a suitable site for them to thrive and grow. They can be spread relatively close together, as little as 1.5m (5ft) to plant companions as they often graft together and shar nutrients. Water well once planted to settle the soil into place.
During the first growing season, you may wish to apply a balanced liquid fertiliser every few weeks to aid in its development. Take care to remove weeds around the base, you may wish to apply a thick layer of mulch to help with this.
It is possible to propagate Asimina by seed or layering in autumn or root cuttings in winter.
