alpine : As the hot season arrives, these plants need abundant and regular watering, using 0,5 litres of water, which keep the soil cool and damp; letís water every 2-3 weeks, or even more often if it is very hot.
mediterranean : The Oenothera biennis loves damp and cool soils, therefore it is necessary to water it very often, keeping the soil slightly damp; in any case it is always advisable to avoid water stagnation and excess watering: it is best to water every 0-1 weeks.
Fertilization Oenothera biennis : In the summer letís fertilize medicinal plants using a slow release fertilizer, to add to the soil every 3-4 months; we can also fertilize them using a fertilizer for flowering plants, to mix to the irrigating water every 15-20 days.
Treatments Oenothera biennis : During the hot months attacks by ticks and rust are likely; the treatments should be applied during the coolest hours of the day. If possible, we suggest avoiding treatments with wide-range products, which could kill the populations of useful insects: letís favour specific products.
