Temperatures GuavaPosizione mezza ombra
The Guava can't tolerate freezings, therefore it is best to grow it in a cold green house or in an apartment; during late Spring we can place them outside, when all risks of freezings are unprobable. 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 of the the Guava , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day.

Care Guava
The Guava develops like a tree. This plant in the spring assumes a white colouring; it is small in size and can reach 3 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. They tend to develop like erect small trees.

Feed Guava
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.

Irrigation GuavaTenere Umido
These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry. 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.

Adversity Guava
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.

Substrate Guava
These fruit plants need an averagely humid soil, not too drained.
