Watering Sarcococca hookerianaTenere Umido
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. We suggest watering pretty often and regularly, with 1-2 buckets of water ; we should always wait for the soil to be clearly dry between one watering and the other. During this time of year usually it is necessary to irrigate every 2-3 weeks .

Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive the sunrays during the coolest hours of the day. 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.The Sarcococca hookeriana usually doesn't have temperature problems during this time of year, because it can bear freezings although not too intense ones.

Treatments Sarcococca hookeriana
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.
