Light Saff flowerSole pieno
We suggest growing the The Saff flower in the garden; these are very rustic plants. Exposure of the medicinal plants.We suggest to position the The Saff flower in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day.

Cultivation Saff flower
The Saff flower is a perennial herb plant. The Saff flower is medium in size and 65 cm in height; in the autumn it assumes a orangeyellowredwhite colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal.

Fertilize Saff flower
During this period of the year, our plants need a frequent fertilization, to guarantee a good quantity of nutritional substances, useful during the development of new vegetation. We can add a fertilizer rich in nitrogen to the irrigating water, every 15-20 days, or a granular slow release fertilizer, to add to the ground every 3-4 months.

Water Saff flowerTenere asciutto
Water sporadically, with 2-3 glasses of water , leaving the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when watering we suggest avoiding excesses, but to wet the substratum well. Let's act every 2-3 weeks . We can use some medicinal plants in the kitchen, fresh; instead if we want to harvest them to use them dehydrated, let’s be sure about their balsamic period, meaning the period of the year in which every period has a higher quantity of active principles.

Pests Saff flower
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.

Mold Saff flower
We recommend growing these medicinal plants in a soft and light, very well drained soil.
