Care Ruscus aculeatus
Ruscus aculeatus Is an evergreen; during spring iIt assumes a bluewhite colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 80 cm high. The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. These plants are shrubs. Feed Ruscus aculeatus
To obtain a florid development it is important to remember to fertilize our shrubs periodically; in the spring letís use a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, which will favour the development of new vegetation and of flowerings. We can intervene at the end of the winter, mixing a good dose of slow release organic fertilizer to the soil surrounding our plant. During the spring it is also possible to act periodically, with liquid or powder fertilizers, to add to the water when irrigating, every 20-25 days. Temperatures Ruscus aculeatusPosizione ombreggiata
Let's grow the The Ruscus aculeatus outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero. These plants don't agree with direct solar rays, which could ruin their foliage; we therefore suggest to locate them in a partially shaded place.When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw. Irrigation Ruscus aculeatusTenere Umido
Water when the ground is dry; in case of prolonged droughts water very often, otherwise every 2-3 weeks can be enough using 1-2 buckets of water ; avoid water stagnations and excessive watering. If we decide to grow a specimen of the Ruscus aculeatus in a container, we should remember that it will have slightly different needs compared to a specimen grown in the ground: we should pay more attention to its water and nutritional needs and check more often for possible development of parassites. Adversity Ruscus aculeatus
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture. Substrate Ruscus aculeatus
These shrubs need an averagely humid, not too drained soil .
