Perennial plants mainly have a spring and summer development. During the coldest months of the year the aerial part can completely dry out, to come up the year after. Let's grow the The Blanket flower in a luminous place, with direct sunlight.Let's grow the The Blanket flower outdoors; they can bear very harsh minimum temperatures, even when many degrees below zero.
Feed Blanket flower
In the spring let’s fertilize perennials periodically, using a specific fertilizer for flowering plants, to add to the irrigating water, every 20-25 days; or we can spread a slow release fertilizer near the plants every 3-4 months.
Care Blanket flower
The Blanket flower has a panel-like development, therefore it tends to widen very much. These plants are perennial herbs. This plant in the summer assumes a red colouring; it is small in size and can reach 60 cm high. It doesn't keep its leaves in the winter.
Irrigation Blanket flower
We suggest watering the The Blanket flower every 1-2 weeks with 2-3 glasses of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. These plants display a pretty long period of vegetational rest. During this time it isn't necessary to water the plants.
Adversity Blanket flower
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there aren’t flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
Substrate Blanket flower
