Wall Cress Growing and Maintenance Tips

Arabis grows best in a well-drained soil and is drought tolerant once established. Remove spent flowers to maintain a tidy and compact habit.  Light pruning should be done in the spring, to ensure enough time for the plants to regenerate before the next flowering season.
