Hebe E. A. Bowles

Hebe I like the article

Cultivation Hebe
The Hebe develops like a shrub. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. This plant in the summer assumes a purple colouring; it is small in size and can reach 70 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.

Light HebeSole pieno
Plant which need at least a few hours a day of solar light. During this time of year the The Hebe can be grown outdoors.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.

Water HebeTenere asciutto
We suggest watering these plants with 1-2 buckets of water only when the soil is perfectly dry, generally it needs to be watered about every 2-3 weeks . Let's avoid to exceed. 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.

Pests Hebe
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.

Mold Hebe
These shrubs favour a soft and deep, but well drained soil.
