During the spring the the Hoheria angustifolia 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. 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.For a balanced development of the the Hoheria angustifolia it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.
Care Hoheria angustifolia
The Hoheria angustifolia develops like a tree. This plant in the summer assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 7 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development.
Feed Hoheria angustifolia
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.
Irrigation Hoheria angustifolia
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 2-3 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry. 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.
Adversity Hoheria angustifolia
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 Hoheria angustifolia
These trees love quite soft, not too drained, soils.
