We suggest to position the the Glory-pea in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. These plants have a climber development; to let them grow at their best, let's place them near a grate or a wall.These plants don't like excessively harsh temperatures, with night-time minimum temperatures below 0įC. during the spring in general they are grown in a covered place, moving them outdoors, or uncovering them, when there isn't any danger of sudden temperature drops.
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.
Let's wet abundantly with about 1-2 buckets of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 2-3 weeks . 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.
