Wattle Acacia retinoides glauca

Wattle I like the article

Exposure WattleSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Wattle in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect.The Wattle usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.

Generalities Wattle
The Wattle develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. This plant in the spring assumes a yellow colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 5 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Wattle develops like a shrub.

Fertilization Wattle
Trees tend to find a great part of nutrients in the soil, because their roots spread more than ten metres; in any case it is advisable to feed the soil with amendants, to guarantee a good quantity of mineral salts; every 2-3 years, in the spring or autumn, we suggest adding to the soil at the feet of the trunk, about a bucket of mature organic fertilizer.

Watering WattleTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 4-5 weeks . The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings.

Treatments Wattle
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.

Soil Wattle
Let’s place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
