There should be a minimum soil depth of 30 cm for perennials, 45 cm for shrubs and 60 cm for trees. </li><li>Every spring, apply 2.5 cm of good quality compost to your container (try not to pile it up around woody stems).</li><li>Remove weeds as required, and inspect for pests and disease every week or two in the spring and summer. </li><li>Ensure the container has adequate drainage and that plants receive a minimum of 5 cm of water weekly during the spring and summer. </li><li>Remove and compost 'spent' blooms and leaves in the fall.</li><li>Prune only to remove misplaced or damaged stems as needed during the summer. The plants suggested here should not require pruning to reduce size. </li></ul> </div>
