Island mallow I like the article

Irrigation Island mallowTenere asciutto
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. As autumn comes these plants tend to perish, we can diminish the waterings, or even interrupt them.

Temperatures Island mallowSole pieno
For a balanced development of the the Island mallow it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. During the spring the the Island mallow can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric.Annual plants are usually not grown during the cold period; as autumn arrives we can uproot them and save the seeds for the year after.

Care Island mallow
The Island mallow develops like a shrub. The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development. This plant in the summer assumes a pink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 2 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.

Adversity Island mallow
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Substrate Island mallow
Letís grow these plants in a soft and dissolved, but well drained, soil.
