These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the The Wattle with non-woven fabric. If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds.Let's grow the The Wattle in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.
These plants are shrubs. Wattle Is an evergreen; during spring iIt assumes a yellow colouring; the adult specimens are medium in size and reach 5 m high. The development of the The Wattle is erect; in genereral in the lower part they have a pretty bare stem, while p many ramifications develop towards the top.
Letís fertilize the plants when implanting them, or every 2-3 years, towards the end of the winter or beginning of Autumn. A good quantity of organic fertilizer, such as manure or earthworm humus should be mixed to the soil at the foot of the stem; in this manner we will supply it with a good quantity of nutrients and we will also improve the mixture of the soil.
We suggest watering the The Wattle every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry.
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
