Prunus Shogetsu

Care Prunus
The Prunus develops in an erect manner and, as the years go by, becomes a tree. These plants have a sapling deportment, with a short stem with a small roundish crown. The Prunus is small in size and 5 m in height; in the spring it assumes a white colouring. These plants aren't evergreens, which means they lose their leaves some months during the year.

Temperatures PrunusSole pieno
Plant which needs at least a few hours a day of sunlight. We suggest growing the The Prunus outdoors year round, as they don't fear cold weather.To prevent damage caused by the cold temperatures, during the months with definately harsh minimum temperatures, we can protect the shrubs by covering the soil around the stem with straw or dry leaves.

Irrigation PrunusTenere asciutto
Watering takes place only when the soil has been dry for days, usually every 2-3 weeks can be enough; if the climate is particularly hot we can slightly intensify the irrigations, using 1-2 buckets of water . 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.

Adversity Prunus
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.

Substrate Prunus
For these shrubs it’s necessary to choose a rich and deep substratum , which presents an excellent drainage.
