The Bergamot is a perennial herb plant. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form. The Bergamot is medium in size and 1 m in height; in the summer it assumes a redpink colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.
We suggest to position the The Bergamot in a sunny spot at least a few hours a day. We advise cultivating the The Bergamot outdoors, since it doesn't fear cold temperatures.These plants lose the aerial part during the coldest months of the year. As spring begins, stems and leaves quickly start to reproduce.
Let's wet abundantly with about 2-3 glasses of water , acting when the soil is pretty dry; during this period of the year we can water even every 1-2 weeks . 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.
These plants need a scarcely drained soil, which can remain slightly damp.
