Fertilization Hovea elliptica
To obtain a florid development it is important to remember to fertilize our shrubs periodically; in the spring letís use a fertilizer rich in nitrogen and potassium, which will favour the development of new vegetation and of flowerings. We can intervene at the end of the winter, mixing a good dose of slow release organic fertilizer to the soil surrounding our plant. During the spring it is also possible to act periodically, with liquid or powder fertilizers, to add to the water when irrigating, every 20-25 days.

Watering Hovea ellipticaTenere Umido
Water regularly, every The , wetting the ground deeply with 1-2 buckets of water , always waiting for the soil to be dry before watering; avoid leaving stagnant water.

Treatments Hovea elliptica
As the day-time temperatures rise at the beginning of the spring, it is agreeable to practice a preventive treatment, with a wide-range insecticide, which should be applied when there arenít flowerings in the garden. Before the buds become too large, it is advisable to also treat them with a wide-range fungicide, to prevent the development of fungal diseases which spread easily when there is an elevated environmental moisture.
