Temperatures Mountain sandwortPosizione mezza ombra
For a balanced development of the The Mountain sandwort , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after.The Mountain sandwort is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round.

Care Mountain sandwort
The development of the The Mountain sandwort is Mountain sandwort isn't an evergreen; during the summer it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 20 cm in height. The Mountain sandwort should be used for rock gardens,

Feed Mountain sandwort
In the spring letís remember to fertilize our perennial plants, using a slow release granular fertilizer, to add in one solution every 3-4 months. If desired we can also use a liquid fertilizer for flowering plants, to mix with the irrigation water every 20-25 days.

Irrigation Mountain sandwortTenere asciutto
Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 2-3 glasses of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 1-2 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy. Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Adversity Mountain sandwort
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 Mountain sandwort
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
