I like the articleCultivation Maple
Maple isn't an evergreen; during the autumn it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 10 m in height. They tend to develop like erect small trees. The Maple develops like a tree. Fertilize Maple
Trees tend to find a great part of nutrients in the soil, because their roots spread more than ten metres; in any case it is advisable to feed the soil with amendants, to guarantee a good quantity of mineral salts; every 2-3 years, in the spring or autumn, we suggest adding to the soil at the feet of the trunk, about a bucket of mature organic fertilizer. Light Maple
The Maple bears even very harsh temperatures, therefore it can be grown outdoors without feeling endangered by low temperatures. Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light.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. Water Maple
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. Pests Maple
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. Mold Maple
Let’s place these trees in a soft and deep, but well drained, soil.
There aren't any notes. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
