These plants don't like excessively harsh temperatures, with night-time minimum temperatures below 0įC. during the spring in general they are grown in a covered place, moving them outdoors, or uncovering them, when there isn't any danger of sudden temperature drops.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.
