Gardening and cultivation

Almost all people in this world have a hobby, or a recreational activity that can be of any kind, but which is characterized in particular by the fact that we like it enormously, which is in short a real passion. Having established this, one can find the hobby of singing, painting, comics, repairs and restorations of antique objects, the hobby of the automobile or motorcycle … so on and so forth! Obviously we are talking about a wealthy segment of the population, not in the sense of rich but in the «global» sense of the term, that is, certainly people from poor areas of the planet where they make kilometers to drink or where there is war will not have any hobbies, while in our society even poor people (that is, with a small and single salary or temporarily without a fixed salary) have a hobby that in some cases manages to help us to release the tension and therefore to overcome a difficult moment. The hobby can also be tiring and almost a «job», as happens for those who have the hobby of cultivation gardening, or that type of gardening that involves the presence of a vegetable garden with the cultivation of tomatoes, aubergines, beans, potatoes etc. and also fruit plants: it requires work, knowledge, patience and passion.

The right technique


In fact, cultivation gardening can be seen as a higher step than classic gardening, to be clear, that gardening that aims at decorative and flowering plants: even in these cases one must be attentive and aware of what is being done, especially because the species decorative are very often delicate (because they are out of habitat), but it is clear that making a citrus grove fruit or picking beautiful tomatoes is almost like real expert farmers. And one thing absolutely must be absorbed by experienced growers: the technique. The cultivation of plants in general and of fruit plants in particular requires the knowledge and correct application of some techniques that aim to fortify the plants so that their fruiting yield is satisfactory. These are operations such as pruning, fertilization, grafting, watering (yes, watering with the right technique and timing is an aspect that is very underestimated by non-professionals), or those activities that really allow the plant to express itself to its fullest potential and perhaps even a little ‘beyond, to the satisfaction of the growers. It is certain that knowing the right technique is not just a matter of theory, in agriculture practice but above all experience are very important.

Pruning

In this article we want to introduce the right advice and tips for all those who want to approach the pruning of a very particular fruit, not native to our areas but so widespread in Italy as to be very common (we do not say the name but you can read it in the title ); to do this, however, it is good to present the topic, since it is fundamental as a basic knowledge of the gardening enthusiast and can give further advice valid for each case. Pruning is the operation that aims to eliminate some parts of the plant at certain times of the year in order to make it stronger and more productive during the subsequent vegetative restart; intuitively one can imagine how a plant, which every year increases the number of branches and leaves, see «waste» their energies to feed even older branches that perhaps have less productive thrust (in terms of fruits, in our case) and it is therefore good to eliminate them to ensure that the strength of the plant is concentrated on the young branches and on the their buds, ready to give fresh leaves, fragrant flowers and delicious fruits. The right period depends from plant to plant, but a plant that has just been pruned risks dying immediately if it suffers a frost (or frost) in the first days following pruning; this is one thing to watch out for.
