Generalities Gentian
The Gentian develops like a perennial herb. The development of the The Gentian is Gentian isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a purple colouring; the adult species are medium in size and reach 40 cm in height.

Exposure GentianSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Gentian in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. The Gentian plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.Letís remember that a large part of the leaves of the medicinal plants can be used for alimentary use, therefore letís use insecticides and anticryptogamics for agricultural use, far from harvest season.

Watering GentianTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 2-3 weeks . Before harvesting and using them, letís be informed on the balsamic period, rather the period in which the active principles are present in a greater quantity in the plant we have chosen.

Treatments Gentian
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 Gentian
We recommend growing these medicinal plants in a soft and light, very well drained soil.
