Watering WattleTenere asciutto
We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water. Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Generalities Wattle
These plants have an erect development; in the lower part they usually show a bare stem, while towards the top they widen to form the crown. The Wattle Is medium in size; in spring it assumes a white colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Wattle has a shrub- like development.

Exposure WattleSole pieno
The Wattle should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. With a particularly windy climate we suggest securing young trees to long solid stakes, to avoid that the wind could bare young and not very developed roots; specimens which are only a few years old might fear intense cold and wind.The Wattle 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.

Treatments Wattle
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.
