Generalities Nutmeg
This plant in the winter assumes a green colouring; it is large in size and can reach 7 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Nutmeg develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. The Nutmeg develops like a tree. Fertilization Nutmeg
Medicinal plants develop new shoots and foliage during the spring period, this is why it is advisable to fertilize periodically, every 15-20 days, using a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to mix with the irrigating water. Exposure NutmegPosizione mezza ombra
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. Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day.Seeing that the foliage of the aromatic plants is used for alimentary needs, we advise paying attention to the use of insecticides and anticryptogamics: letís use only those for agriculture and letís follow very strictly the lacking period written on the label before harvesting these plants. Watering NutmegTenere Umido
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 2-3 weeks . A great part of the aromatic plants are used fresh; during the spring and in the summer it is possible to harvest a good quantity of them, to conserve dehydrated or frozen, to use them during the cold months. Treatments Nutmeg
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 Nutmeg
We recommend cultivating these plants in a slightly humid, not too drained substratum.
