Watering VervainTenere asciutto
To use these plants year round we can proceed with harvesting, in the spring or in the summer. The plants should be washed and dried well, then dehydrated, or frozen, to use them during the year. Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Generalities Vervain
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Vervain is medium in size and 70 cm in height; in the summer it assumes a greenpurplepink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. The Vervain is a perennial herb plant.

Exposure VervainPosizione mezza ombra
It is advisable to position this plant in a partially shady place, where it is exposed to direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The leaves of aromatic plants are used in the kitchen; if necessary let’s remember to use only agricultural parasiticides, and let’s follow the lacking period indicated on the label: if we spray a plant we can ‘t use its leaves for alimentary use for the period of time indicated, when the chemical product is harmful.The Vervain should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.

Treatments Vervain
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.
