The Buttercup is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round. During the period of vegetative rest, itís possible to take the bulbs or tubers out of the ground; the well cleaned and dried bulbs should be placed in a cool, dry and dark place; to be planted later on during the most indicated time of year.For a balanced development of the The Buttercup it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.
The Buttercup develops like a perennial herb. Buttercup isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a yellow colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 50 cm in height. The development of the The Buttercup is
Letís add some organic fertilizer or humus to the soil, when planting our bulbous plants, in the spring or autumn; later letís remember to start fertilizing when the flowers are withering, using, every 15-20 days, a specific fertilizer for bulbous plants.
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 glasses of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 1-2 weeks , when the soil is dry. To avoid that the bulb or tuber should become rotten, we must remember to avoid excessively abundant waterings, which keep the soil wet for a long time.
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.
These bulbous plants favour fairly heavy, averagely drained, not too humid, soils.
