Cedar

How much and when to water

The cedar is a plant, probably of Asian origin, with very particular characteristics. It is usually grown in the garden as an ornamental plant, due to its rustic appearance. Despite this, its fruits do not have a great productive value. The irrigation of the cedar is the main operation to be performed to allow the plant itself to grow adequately and maintain a high level of health. When the cedar is grown, it is not advisable to keep it in a dry environment, but the plant must be placed outdoors, in the garden. The cedar must be irrigated particularly in spring and summer. It is necessary to carry out this operation cyclically and on a regular basis, to keep the soil constantly moist but not impregnated.

Cultivate and care


For the cultivation of cedar, it is necessary to choose a cultivation soil that has the appropriate characteristics. In this regard, before planting this species, it is necessary to carry out analyzes of the cultivation soil to know its chemical-physical characteristics and, therefore, to evaluate its ability to host the cedar. Another key note is the climate. The cultivation of cedar is closely related to the climate of the areas in which it is grown. In fact, the climate of the Italian Mediterranean areas, with moderately harsh winters and summers that are not overly hot, seems to be the optimal one. An important thing to point out is that cedar is not inclined to withstand the wind. In this regard, it is advisable to build protective structures (fences, screens, etc.) around the tree.

Advice on fertilization


Fertilization is a fundamental operation in the first years of the cedar tree’s life. This must be done through the cyclical use of organic products every 12-15 days. This ensures the plant has the right amount of nutrients, which will allow it to grow and develop properly. After the first years of life, it is good to continue fertilizing with the use of organic products. It is advisable to use other supplementary slow-release fertilizing substances, in addition to the organic ones. Furthermore, it is important to use specific supplementary liquid mineral fertilizers, which are able to reach the leaves together with the water when carrying out the irrigation operation. L’

Cedar: Diseases and parasites


Generally speaking, cedar is a plant with a high level of resistance. Despite this, this feature does not make it immune from contracting dangerous diseases that can more or less compromise the state of health. The bacteria and parasites that can damage the integrity of the plant are innumerable. To prevent the cedar from coming into contact with any pathogens, the first preventive measure to be adopted concerns, of course, the use of adequately clean work equipment. It is therefore necessary both to sterilize the tools used for pruning and to keep the operator’s gloves clean. In conclusion, it is important to eliminate all puddles of water that can form and concentrate at the base of the trunk following irrigation,
