The Loquat plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures. Young specimens, which have been planted for little time, usually are ensured by a stake, which keeps the stem erect; during the winter letís protect the young plants covering the area near the roots with dry leaves or straw.For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Loquat in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight.
The Loquat develops like a shrub. This plant in the spring assumes a pink colouring; it is medium in size and can reach 3 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. They tend to develop like erect small trees.
As the beautiful season arrives letís enrich our soil near our fruit plants, planting a good quantity of mature organic fertilizer, or some granular slow release fertilizer or earthworm humus.
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 4-5 weeks . To avoid that the watering and fertilizing for our fruit plants get absorbed by other plants, we suggest to clean the soil from the infesting plants, periodically, even by simply using a hoe.
These trees favour a soft and deep, very well drained soil.
