Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw.These plants don't fear the cold weather and therefore can be grown in the garden during any time of year.
The development of the The Arborvitae is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top. Arborvitae Is an evergreen; during winter iIt assumes a yellowgreen colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 40 cm high. These plants are cone-trees, so their foliage is made up of needle-like leaves.
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.
Water regularly, every The , wetting the ground deeply with 1-2 buckets of water , always waiting for the soil to be dry before watering; avoid leaving stagnant water. If we decide to grow a specimen of the Arborvitae 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.
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.
These shrubs need an averagely humid, not too drained soil .
