Willow Salix babylonica

Willow I like the article

Irrigation WillowTenere Umido
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. 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.

Temperatures WillowSole pieno
For a balanced development of the The Willow it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Willow is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round.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.

Care Willow
The Willow develops like a tree. The ramifications of these plants tend to develop downwards. Willow isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a green colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 8 m in height.

Adversity Willow
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 Willow
These trees love quite soft, not too drained, soils.
