Exposure BrazilwoodSole pieno
These plants don't fear the cold weather and therefore can be grown in the garden during any time of year. If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds.Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light.

Generalities Brazilwood
As they grow, these plants become the size of a tree. This plant in the autumn assumes a yellow colouring; it is large in size and can reach 17 m high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter. The development of the The Brazilwood is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top.

Fertilization Brazilwood
Letís fertilize the plants when implanting them, or every 2-3 years, towards the end of the winter or beginning of Autumn. A good quantity of organic fertilizer, such as manure or earthworm humus should be mixed to the soil at the foot of the stem; in this manner we will supply it with a good quantity of nutrients and we will also improve the mixture of the soil.

Watering BrazilwoodTenere asciutto
Letís avoid watering the The Brazilwood excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water . We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry.

Treatments Brazilwood
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Soil Brazilwood
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
