These plants shouldn't be grown in the garden during the cold period; in autumn the plants usually perish, and should be eradicated from the ground. Let's grow the the Echium vulgare in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.Let's grow the the Echium vulgare outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.
Feed Echium vulgare
Before placing the annuals, let’s enrich the soil with a small dose of organic fertilizer or slow release granular chemical fertilizer; during the spring we should use a specific fertilizer for flowering plants to be mixed with the irrigating water, to be used every 20-30 days.
Care Echium vulgare
When growing these plants tend to go up, developing very little in width, and they tend to have a columnar development. These plants have a one or two year development. This plant in the spring, summer, autumn, winter assumes a purple colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 30 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
Irrigation Echium vulgare
We suggest watering the the Echium vulgare every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, we can interrupt watering, and let the plants perish.
Adversity Echium vulgare
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 aren’t 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.
