Tall plants

Tall garden plants: necessity

Before starting the cultivation of tall trees in our garden we will have to pay attention to a number of elements that are important for their growth and health. The climatic conditions, in fact, as well as the width of the land available are fundamental prerequisites for guaranteeing the right well-being to the plant. Tall trees need special attention especially during the first few years of life. The necessary care varies depending on the type chosen but, in general it will be necessary to aerate the basal part of the plant by creating a roundel around it that will have the function of receiving the water necessary for irrigation. It will be necessary to pay close attention to irrigation in the summer because the water supply necessary for their sustenance will certainly be greater.

Tall plants: eucalyptus


Eucalyptus is one of the best known broad-leaved trees and is a tall garden plant belonging to the mirtaceae family. It is possible that some specimens reach ninety meters in height. Its stem is erect and long-limbed, covered with a crown composed of very fragrant and opposite leaves characterized by a green color tending to gray. Its reproduction takes place by seeds whose germination is very rapid. The planting can, in fact, take place already after twenty-five days, by placing the very young tree in a sheltered and shady place. The root tap will have to be cut every two weeks due to the speed with which it grows. After six months it can be planted and irrigated in case the following period is not rainy enough.

Tall plant: white birch


The white birch is one of the tall garden plants, belonging to the family of broad-leaved trees. It is slender and erect but hardly exceeds fifty centimeters in diameter. A foliage that is not particularly dense develops along its stem. Its ideal climate is cold but it is able to adapt to temperate mountain climates. It grows well even if planted in arid soils, what matters is that they are deep enough to accommodate its complex root system. During the planting, the soil must be fertilized with mature manure. This operation will be repeated, in the years to come, in the period that anticipates the vegetative phase of the plant. It is a plant that resists drought in adulthood but constant irrigation is recommended for the first few years.

Tall plants: hornbeam


The hornbeam is a tree that can reach twenty-five meters in height and, among the various specimens of tall garden plants, it has the characteristic of standing on a particularly crooked and branched trunk covered with a particularly smooth brown bark. Its ideal climate is temperate but it is incredibly adaptable, in fact it tolerates both particularly hot summers and harsh winters. It is a tree that prefers very fertile and fresh, well-drained and moderately humid soils. It is advisable to plant it in well-sunny positions even if it performs well even if placed in shady areas. One of the greatest dangers for these trees so resistant and adaptable is represented by water stagnation, for this reason it is good to avoid that the ground does not present air bubbles.
