Feed Cork oak
Letís fertilize the plants when implanting them, or every 2-3 years, towards the end of the winter or beginning of Autumn. A good quantity of organic fertilizer, such as manure or earthworm humus should be mixed to the soil at the foot of the stem; in this manner we will supply it with a good quantity of nutrients and we will also improve the mixture of the soil.

Irrigation Cork oakTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Cork oak every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with 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.

If a tree with a very thin trunk is put in shelter, it could be useful to secure it to a solid stake, which can keep it erect, and protect it from the damage caused by strong winds. Let's grow the The Cork oak in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.These plants don't like the cold weather during this time of year. If the minimum night-time temperatures are very harsh it is best to cover the The Cork oak with non-woven fabric.

Adversity Cork oak
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.
