Temperatures Musk mallowPosizione mezza ombra
Since the foliage is used to be eaten, letís use specific insecticides and anticryptogamics, far from the harvest period. Locate this plant in a partially shaded place, where it is exposed to solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.Let's grow the The Musk mallow outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.

Feed Musk mallow
During the spring months letís fertilize our plants periodically, every 15-20 days, using a fertilizer rich in nitrogen. When desired, it is also possible to use a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil every 3-4 months.

Care Musk mallow
The Musk mallow has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. These plants are perennial herbs. This plant in the autumn assumes a greenpink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 80 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.

Irrigation Musk mallowTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the The Musk mallow every 2-3 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. Medicinal plants can be used fresh or dehydrated; if we want to harvest them to put them aside dehydrated, letís get information regarding the balsamic period of the plant we have chosen, rather when the plant has a higher quantity of active principles.
