The Wattle develops like a shrub. The Wattle develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. This plant in the spring assumes a yellow colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 6,5 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.
Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. During this time of year the The Wattle can be grown outdoors.During the winter young plants could need a light protection from the wind or cold; when putting the very young specimens, with a thin stem, in shelter, we should provide them with a high stake to keep them erect.
We suggest watering these plants with 1-2 buckets of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 4-5 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed. The young specimens, recently sheltered, need more cures compared to the adult specimens: as the years go by the development of a good radical apparatus allows the plant to be satisfied with the rain, without needing other waterings.
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.
Let’s place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
