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. The Echium vulgare should be preferably located in a place where it can have at least a few hours a day of direct solar light.These plants aren't afraid of the cold weather and can be grwon in the garden throughout the whole year.

Fertilize 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.

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.

Water Echium vulgareTenere asciutto
Let's water abundantly, moistening the soil deeply with 2-3 glasses of water , but let's act only when the substratum is dry, leaving it dry even for 1-2 weeks before watering it. As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, we can interrupt watering, and let the plants perish.

Pests 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.
