Irrigation FirTenere asciutto
Concerning those specimens grown in vases, let's remember that usually they need more watering, compared to the same shrubs placed in the ground. Moreover, they are often more sensible to temperatures, either very high or very low, and to radical apparatus diseases. Letís water these plants only when the substratum is clearly dry using 1-2 buckets of water ; during this period of the year we should intervene every 2-3 weeks , or even less if the weather is rainy.

Care Fir
The Fir develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. This plant in the spring, summer, autumn, winter assumes a green colouring; it is small in size and can reach 1 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Fir develops like a conifer.

Temperatures FirSole pieno
For a balanced development of the The Fir it is advisable to locate it in a place where it is exposed to at least a few hours of direct sunlight. During the winter months we can cover a portion of the soil near the roots with dry leaves or other mulch tissue; in this manner we will protect the plant from the harsh climate.The Fir is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round.

Adversity Fir
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.

Substrate Fir
These shrubs favour a soft and deep, but well drained soil.
