Coigue Nothofagus dombeyi

Coigue I like the article

Light CoigueSole pieno
The Coigue bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures. 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.Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light.

Cultivation Coigue
The Coigue develops like a tree. Coigue isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 17 m in height. The Coigue develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown.

Fertilize Coigue
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.

Water CoigueTenere Umido
The Coigue Needs regular watering, but we suggest letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; let's take action every 2-3 weeks , remembering to water the substratum well with 2-3 buckets of water . 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.

Pests Coigue
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.

Mold Coigue
These trees prefer soils for acidophilic plants, which slightly withhold humidity.
