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. Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight.We suggest growing the the Acca sellowiana outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.
Feed Acca sellowiana
Tree fertilization should be done at the beginning of the spring or of autumn, using humus or mature manure; this should be done by mixing a few buckets of fertilizer to the ground, around the trunk of the tree, every 2-3 years or when the tree implanted.
Care Acca sellowiana
These plants have a sapling deportment, with a short stem with a small roundish crown. The Acca sellowiana has a shrub- like development. The Acca sellowiana Is medium in size; in spring it assumes a purple colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.
Irrigation Acca sellowiana
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 4-5 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 buckets of water . We advise watering the young specimens, or the recently sheltered ones; the adult specimens usually are satisfied with rain water.
Adversity Acca sellowiana
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.
Substrate Acca sellowiana
Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
