Exposure Spotted snapweedSole pieno
Annual plants are usually not grown during the cold period; as autumn arrives we can uproot them and save the seeds for the year after. For a correct development of the plant we suggest avoiding exposure to late freezings; let's grow it in a covered place, locating it outside only in late spring.For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Spotted snapweed in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.

Watering Spotted snapweedTenere Umido
As autumn comes these plants tend to perish, we can diminish the waterings, or even interrupt them. We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks .

Fertilization Spotted snapweed
When we prepare the soil to welcome our annuals, in the apring or at the beginning of the summer, let’s add a good quantity of manure, or slow release granular fertilizer. To improve the flowering we can also give it specific fertilizations for flowering or green plants, mixed with the irrigating water, every 20-30 days.

Treatments Spotted snapweed
The spring weather, with a high temperature swing between the day and night hours, and pretty frequent rains, can favour the development of fungus diseases, which should be treated pre-emptively with a systemic fungicide, to use before the gems grow excessively; at the end of the winter we also suggest a wide range insecticide to prevent the attack of aphids and cochineals. We should always remember to do these treatments when there aren't flowerings in the garden.

Soil Spotted snapweed
Cultivate these annual plants in a soil with a not too accentuated drainage, which remains slightly humid.
