Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. These plants have a climber development; to let them grow at their best, let's place them near a grate or a wall.Let's grow the The Glory-pea In a cold green house or in the house, as they fear frost; we can move them outside in late spring, with minimum temperatures above zero.
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.
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.
The Glory-pea needs to be watered quite frequently, every 2-3 weeks ; if there are abundant rains we can diminish watering, which should be done only when the soil is dry. The suggested quantity is 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.
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.
Letís locate these climber plants in a slightly heavy soil with an average drainage.
