Watering CrapemyrtleTenere asciutto
Letís avoid watering the The Crapemyrtle excessively, always leaving the soil dry for a few days between one watering and the other, therefore letís irrigate the substratum deeply every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water . We should pay particular attention to those plants which have been recently placed in shelter; during the years, trees develop a cospicuous radical apparatus, and need watering only if the climate is particularly dry.

Treatments Crapemyrtle
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.

Soil Crapemyrtle
These trees need a dissolved soil with an optimum drainage.
