Irrigation Hakea laurinaTenere 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. These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 2-3 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry.

Care Hakea laurina
The development of these plants is columnar, they grow aiming high with a scarce lateral development. This plant in the spring assumes a red colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 6 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Hakea laurina develops like a tree.

Temperatures Hakea laurinaPosizione mezza ombra
For a balanced development of the the Hakea laurina , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. 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.During the spring the the Hakea laurina can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric.

Adversity Hakea laurina
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.

Substrate Hakea laurina
These trees love quite soft, not too drained, soils.
