Care Red huckleberry
The Red huckleberry develops like a shrub. Growing they develop a round-shape shrub. This plant in the autumn assumes a red colouring; it is small in size and can reach 1,5 m high. It keeps its leaves in the winter.

Temperatures Red huckleberryPosizione mezza ombra
For a balanced development of the The Red huckleberry , let's choose a partially shaded place, where it can enjoy direct sunlight only during the coolest hours of the day. The Red huckleberry is a plant which can be grown in the garden year round.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.

Irrigation Red huckleberryTenere Umido
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. 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.

Adversity Red huckleberry
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 Red huckleberry
These shrubs need to be cultivated in a quite drained, specific soil for acidophilic plants.
