Generalities California laurel
The California laurel develops like a tree. They tend to develop like erect small trees. California laurel isn't an evergreen; during the winter it assumes a yellow colouring; the adult species are large in size and reach 16 m in height.

Exposure California laurelSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the the California laurel in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The California laurel usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.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.

Watering California laurelTenere Umido
We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 buckets of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks . 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.

Treatments California laurel
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.

Soil California laurel
These trees love quite soft, not too drained, soils.
