Irrigation Date palmTenere asciutto
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.

Temperatures Date palmSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. We suggest growing the The Date palm outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.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.

Care Date palm
The Date palm develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree. These plants have an arcuate deportment, like palm trees. The Date palm Is medium in size; in winter it assumes a green colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round.

Adversity Date palm
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.

Grow these plants in a dissolved and deep, but well drained soil.
