Feed Erica carnea : We should enrich the soil near our perennials with some manure or earthworm humus, or with some slow release fertilizer. Besides improving the soil, making it softer and permeable, organic fertilization brings a good dose of nitrogen, which melts in the soil in about 3-4 months.Temperatures Erica carnea
continental : Let's grow the the Erica carnea where it can enjoy as many hours as possible of direct sunlight.
alpine : Plant which needs to be exposed to direct sunrays.
mediterranean : Locate the the in a sunny place, where it can receive direct solar rays for at least a few hours a day.
continental : The Erica carnea needs frequent and regular irrigations; we advise keeping the soil damp using 3-4 glasses of water, watering every 0-1 weeks.
alpine : Water abundantly with 2-3 glasses of water approximately every 1-2 weeks, wetting the ground deep down; letís always wait for the soil to dry before watering again.
mediterranean : Letís water the the Erica carnea frequently with 4-5 glasses of water, even every 0-0 weeks, so that the soil is always damp, but not soaked with water.
Adversity Erica carnea : When the climate is still not too harsh we should apply a wide range fungal treatment, vaporizing the fungicide even on the soil on the feet of the plants. Letís remember to collect and destroy the leaves of the plants affected by black spot disease or by leaf curl disease.
