Fertilization Cochlearia oficinalis
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.

Generalities Cochlearia oficinalis
The Cochlearia oficinalis have a one or two year development cycle. The Cochlearia oficinalis is medium in size and 80 cm in height; in the spring, summer, autumn, winter it assumes a greenwhite 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.

Watering Cochlearia oficinalisTenere asciutto
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. Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Treatments Cochlearia oficinalis
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.

Soil Cochlearia oficinalis
We recommend growing these medicinal plants in a soft and light, very well drained soil.
