For a balanced development of the The Hollylock it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. Letís remember that a large part of the leaves of the medicinal plants can be used for alimentary use, therefore letís use insecticides and anticryptogamics for agricultural use, far from harvest season.The Hollylock is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round.
The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development. Hollylock isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a greenpurplepinkwhite colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 1,2 m in height. The Hollylock develops like a perennial herb.
In the spring we suggest fertilizing our plants with fertilizers rich in nitrogen, to favour the development of the radical apparatus of the young leaves. We can use liquid fertilizers, to be added every 15-20 days, or slow release fertilizers, to be added to the cultivation soil every 3-4 months.
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 2-3 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. Before harvesting and using them, letís be informed on the balsamic period, rather the period in which the active principles are present in a greater quantity in the plant we have chosen.
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.
We recommend growing these medicinal plants in a soft and light, very well drained soil.
