Exposure Glory-peaSole pieno
the Glory-pea should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. These plants have a climber development; to let them grow at their best, let's place them near a grate or a wall.The Glory-pea can't stand temperatures below zero; they should be grown in cold green houses or at least in a place where they are sheltered by the wind; when every risk of late freezings has gone by we can place them outside or remove the protections.

Generalities Glory-pea
These plants are climbers, therefore they grow leaning against supports of all types. The Glory-pea Is medium in size; in spring it assumes a purple colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Glory-pea has a shrub- like development.

Fertilization Glory-pea
For climber plants to develop without problems, letís act at the end of the winter, or in autumn, adding some manure, or a slow release fertilizer to the ground. In the spring, every 25-30 days, letís add some specific fertilizer for green or flowering plants to the irrigating water.

Watering Glory-peaTenere Umido
During this period of the year the the Glory-pea needs regular watering, which should be done letting the soil dry between one watering and the other; letís irrigate every 2-3 weeks with about 1-2 buckets of water . These plants have a vigorous development; when the stem is wider it might need abundant watering during the long summer months.

Treatments Glory-pea
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 Glory-pea
Letís locate these climber plants in a slightly heavy soil with an average drainage.
