Fertilization Halesia carolina
Shrubs develop new shoots and prepare their flowers during the spring period, therefore we must remember, by the end of the winter, to give it a good dose of humus or mature manure, or granular slow release fertilizer, to be added to the soil at the foot of the plant. During the spring we can choose a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, to mix with the irrigating water, every 20-25 days.

Generalities Halesia carolina
The Halesia carolina has a shrub- like development. The Halesia carolina is medium in size and 4 m in height; in the summer it assumes a pinkwhite colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year. These plants give origin to a brush with a rounded form.

Watering Halesia carolinaTenere asciutto
If we want to grow these plants in a vase, we should water them a bit more often, compared to plants cultivated in the ground; Every 2-3 years we should renew the substratum in the vase, or enrich with organic amender. Water rarely, about once every 2-3 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , keeping the soil dry for a few days before watering again; when wetting we suggest avoiding surpluses, however to wet the soil deep down.

Treatments Halesia carolina
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.

Soil Halesia carolina
Let’s grow these shrubs in a substratum for acidophilic plants, which also has a very good drainage.
