Exposure of the medicinal plants. We suggest growing the The Pot marigold outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight.

Irrigation Pot marigoldTenere asciutto
We can use some medicinal plants in the kitchen, fresh; instead if we want to harvest them to use them dehydrated, let’s be sure about their balsamic period, meaning the period of the year in which every period has a higher quantity of active principles. Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 2-3 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water .

Feed Pot marigold
During this period of the year, our plants need a frequent fertilization, to guarantee a good quantity of nutritional substances, useful during the development of new vegetation. We can add a fertilizer rich in nitrogen to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days, or a granular slow release fertilizer, to add to the ground every 3-4 months.
