Treatments Patchouli
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.

Soil Patchouli
These aromatic plants prefer slightly heavy, not too humid, averagely drained, soils.
