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 Catchfly outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.Let's grow the The Catchfly in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.

Irrigation CatchflyTenere asciutto
As the cold weather arrives, in autumn, we can interrupt watering, and let the plants perish. We suggest watering the The Catchfly 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.

Feed Catchfly
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.

Adversity Catchfly
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.
