The American witchhazel plant can be grown in the garden throughout the whole year.

Watering American witchhazel
We suggest watering these plants only from time to time, but we must remember to wet the soil deeply using 1-2 buckets of water every 2-3 weeks . 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.
Treatments American witchhazel
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.
