Fertilization Southern catalpa
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.

Generalities Southern catalpa
The Southern catalpa develops like a tree. Southern catalpa isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 13 m in height. The Southern catalpa develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown.

Watering Southern catalpaTenere Umido
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. We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 buckets of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks .

Treatments Southern catalpa
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.

Soil Southern catalpa
These trees love quite soft, not too drained, soils.
