Watering WillowTenere Umido
Generally during the period of vegetatational rest it isn't necessary to water our perennial plants, which in many cases lose their aerial part. We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 2-3 glasses of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 1-2 weeks .

Generalities Willow
The development of the The Willow is Willow isn't an evergreen; during the spring it assumes a white colouring; the adult species are small in size and reach 15 cm in height. The Willow should be used for rock gardens,

Exposure WillowSole pieno
For a balanced development, it is best to position the The Willow in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. 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 Willow plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year. It doesn't fear cold weather and it bears very harsh minimum temperatures.

Treatments Willow
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.
