To the best of my knowlege (which is limited re: J.I.) , they need
water and lots of manure! Dig down 2 feet and give them lots of soil
goodies before planting. I also think Chad mentioned top dressing but
I am not sure. Ask an expert, I know they are out there.
This is my third try at growing J.I.'s, I failed the first two times.
It's best I stick to bearded, siberians, and spurias They really grow
well for me.
