Fertilization Bristle basketgrass
In the spring let’s 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.

Watering Bristle basketgrassTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 2-3 glasses of water every 1-2 weeks . Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part.

Exposure Bristle basketgrassPosizione mezza ombra
Usually during the coldest periods of the year the aerial part of these plants dries; it will begin to develop again the spring after. Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day.The Bristle basketgrass needs a minimum temperature superior to 15°C, during this time of the year it is best to check the night temperatures before setting it outside.

Treatments Bristle basketgrass
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.

Soil Bristle basketgrass
Grow these perennial plants in a very well drained substratum.
