Exposure PickerelweedSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Pickerelweed in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. During the winter they can be set in a water garden, or it is possible to place our plants in large containers, locating them in a fresh and bright place.The Pickerelweed plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.

Generalities Pickerelweed
The development of the The Pickerelweed is Pickerelweed isn't an evergreen; during the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a blue colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 75 cm in height. The Pickerelweed should be grown in water gardens.

Fertilization Pickerelweed
Fertilization for aquatic plants usually is mixed to the soil in which they are planted; this is why mature manure, or granular fertilizer, can be used. On the market there are specific fertilizers for sheets of water to be mixed to the water or in pills to be inserted in the soil.

Watering PickerelweedTenere bagnato
To develop better these plants need regular watering , keeping the soil moist; letís water often, every 0-1 weeks using 1-2 buckets of water . Water plants can also bear stagnant water, remaining with the roots completely immersed; they survive even in very humid locations, near small lakes or small ponds.

Treatments Pickerelweed
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 Pickerelweed
Aquatic plants should be located near aquatic gardens, in a soil which stays humid for long.
