    Anybody have any experience with a "walking stick bush"? like how fast they grow, kind of soil, sun/shade etc.. I got a two foot one in the mail today and put it in the ground with what they sent, wondering if I should do anything to the soil, there were no instructions. Thanks.

    slow to average grower. half sun and should do fine in equal parts of sand, silt and clay.

    Thanks JNyz, I already planted it in a area with just that, half sun/shade, however, I didnt know about the sand. Since I didnt add sand,is there a fert. I should use?

    10-6-4 fert but wait till the fall. soil is made up of sand silt and clay, no need to add sand unless all clay
