    • Phormium, commonly known as New Zealand Flax, is a hardy plant that can be grown outdoors in the UK. Here are some care instructions to keep your Phormium healthy:

    • Watering: Phormiums require regular watering during the growing season (spring and summer), but be careful not to overwater as this can lead to root rot. Water thoroughly when the top inch of soil is dry to the touch.

    • Soil: Phormiums prefer well-draining soil that is slightly acidic. You can use a general-purpose potting mix or a mix of garden soil and compost.

    • Light: Phormiums prefer full sun to partial shade, so make sure they are placed in a location that receives at least 6 hours of sunlight per day.

    • Fertilizer: Phormiums do not require a lot of fertilizer, but you can apply a balanced fertilizer in the spring and summer to promote healthy growth.

    • Pruning: You can remove any dead or damaged leaves from your Phormium as needed. If the plant becomes too large, you can also prune it back in the spring.

    • Winter care: Phormiums are hardy in the UK, but they may require protection in severe winters. You can cover the plant with horticultural fleece or move it to a sheltered location if necessary.
