Fertilize Kalmia angustifolia : Usually fertilizers arenít used during the summer; should we notice a development of spot virus on the leaves, caused by nutritional lacking, letís add specific fertilizers.

Pests Kalmia angustifolia : During the summer months it is best to apply precise treatments, specifically against each type of parasite, to be used only when we have already noticed the presence of fungus or insects on our plants; these treatments should be applied during the coolest hours of the day. In general during this period of the year an infesting of ticks and rust is very likely to occur, because its development is favoured by dry climates.
