Irrigation 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. These plants favour quite regular watering, usually 1-2 buckets of water ; we advise in any case to irrigate every 2-3 weeks , when the soil is dry.

Care Sarcococca hookeriana
The Sarcococca hookeriana develops growing in height, and develops a bare stem, creating a thick crown. This plant in the winter assumes a pinkwhite colouring; it is small in size and can reach 80 cm high. It keeps its leaves in the winter. The Sarcococca hookeriana develops like a shrub.

Temperatures Sarcococca hookerianaPosizione mezza ombra
For a balanced development of the the Sarcococca hookeriana , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only 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.During the spring the the Sarcococca hookeriana can't stand the cold weather; should the climate be particularly harsh, with minimum night-time temperatures some degrees below zero, let's cover our plant with non-woven fabric.

Adversity 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.

Substrate Sarcococca hookeriana
Let’s favour an averagely drained, soft and rich growing substratum.
