Despite the casualties from the colder winter of 2010/11 proteas are much easier to grow than many people imagine and can readily be grown outside in milder areas PROVIDING the soil is very free draining, acidic and low in nutrients (ie no fertiliser containing phosphates). Full sun and a south facing slope would be ideal. To avoid proteas getting wet feet it is helpful to plant them on a raised mound and add bark or grit for improved drainage.
