Last Sunday I purchased the last of Home Depot's Australian Racer. I am going to plant these between pavers on a latticed patio. How often should I feed this plant and with what product to make it lush and full? I look forward to your reply and thank you for your help.

Myoporum parvifolium (Creeping Myoporum)is a fast growing plant is hardy to about 18F degrees and is quite drought tolerant once established. It's a great plant for for erosion control on slopes and between pavers. It grows best in full sun and dry soils. Since you are planting between pavers you can hose it down once or twice a week and every 3-4 weeks use a liquid plant food (such as Miracle Gro) during one of your regular waterings. It will take a few weeks to establish itself but after that it should grow lush and full with a miniumum of care. Good luck with your new plants!
