Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.We suggest growing the The Spurgelaurel outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.
These plants grow covering the whole land at their disposal. The Spurgelaurel Is small in size; in spring it assumes a greenred colouring. These are evergreen plants, which means they keep their leaves year round. The Spurgelaurel has a shrub- like development.
We suggest adding to the irrigation water, in the spring, every 20-25 days, a specific fertilizer for flowering plants. We can also mix to the soil near the plants a granular slow release fertilizer, which has a 3-4 month action.
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 1-2 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 2-3 glasses of water . Perennial plants are subject to some months of vegetational rest. During these months it isn't necessary to water them.
Generally during this time of year we suggest a pre-emptive treatment with wide range insecticide and with a systemic fungicide, to prevent the attack from part of the aphids and the development of fungus diseases, often favoured by a mild and damp climate.
We suggest a substratum characterized by an excellent drainage.
The Spurgelaurel also has a pleasing fragrance. The indications given in this article are related to a medium size plant.
