Generalities Buttercup
The Buttercup is large in size and 20 cm in height; in the winter it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Buttercup is a plant for a rock garden. Fertilization Buttercup
Bulbous plants use nutritious substances stored from the previous year for their flowering ; this is why usually the soil should be enriched, during planting, with a slow release or organic fertilizer. Later we must fertilize with a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants, every 15-20 days, starting from the moment in which the first flowers are withering. Exposure ButtercupSole pieno
The Buttercup should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero. The Buttercup should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight.If necessary we can extract the bulbs from the ground, during the vegetative rest; after letting them dry we should place them in a cool, dry and dark place. During the most indicated season we can plant them again. Watering ButtercupTenere asciutto
Water rarely, about once every 1-2 weeks with 1-2 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. These plants don't need too much water; staying in a soil which is too damp, can easily cause the development of rotten in the bulbs. Treatments Buttercup
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 Buttercup
Locate in a deep and dissolved soil, with an accentuated drainage.
