Temperatures Westringia fruticosaSole pieno
Let's grow the the Westringia fruticosa in a luminous place, with direct sunlight. When the minimum temperatures are very low we can protec the more sensible brushes by covering their roots with dry leaves or straw.These plants can be put outdoors only if any danger of freezings has gone by.

Care Westringia fruticosa
The development is erect, they tend to grow both in height and in width, giving origin to a rounded shrub. Westringia fruticosa Is an evergreen; during summer iIt assumes a white colouring; the adult specimens are small in size and reach 1,4 m high. These plants are shrubs.

Feed Westringia fruticosa
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.

Irrigation Westringia fruticosaTenere asciutto
We suggest watering the the Westringia fruticosa every 2-3 weeks with 1-2 buckets of water , which means when the soil has been dry for days; if the season should be very hot and arid we can intensify the quantity of irrigations, although we must avoid leaving the substratum soaked with water. If we decide to grow a specimen of the Westringia fruticosa in a container, we should remember that it will have slightly different needs compared to a specimen grown in the ground: we should pay more attention to its water and nutritional needs and check more often for possible development of parassites.

Adversity Westringia fruticosa
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.

Substrate Westringia fruticosa
Locate in a soft soil with an accentuated drainage.
