The Loquat should be grown in a bright place, with direct sunlight. Usually the specimens which have been planted for a long time arenít frightened by the inclement weather, anyhow we suggest to mulch the soil around the young plants, using straw or dry leaves. Young plants usually are provided with stakes, so that they can develop erect.The Loquat should be grown outdoors; it can bear very harsh temperatures without any problems, even many degrees below zero.
These plants have a sapling deportment, with a short stem with a small roundish crown. The Loquat Is medium in size; in spring it assumes a white colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Loquat has a shrub- like development.
Towards the end of the winter, or the beginning of the spring, letís add some mature manure or earthworm humus to the soil near the trunk.
Water rarely, about once every 4-5 weeks with 1-2 buckets 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. As maintenance to our fruit orchard, to avoid other plants from using the water and fertilizer which we give to our fruit plants, letís remember periodically to clean from infesting plants, hoeing the soil on the surface.
We recommend cultivating these fruit plants in a soft and light, very well drained.
