|Exposure Onoclea sensibilis
continental : These plants prefer partially shady places, where they can be exposed to direct solar rays only in the evening or early morning hours.
alpine : Let's choose a partially shaded place for our plant, where it can be exposed to direct sunrays for a few hours a day.
mediterranean : Locate this plant in a partially shady place, where it can receive solar rays during the coolest hours of the day.
continental : With the summer climate watering must be done often and regularly; every time the soil dries completely, letís water it deep down with 1-2 buckets of water. Usually irrigation takes place every 2-3 weeks.
alpine : During the summer months it is best to water quite often, although we mustnít exceed; use about 0-1 buckets of water. We suggest leaving the soil dry for 3-4 weeks before watering again.
mediterranean : Letís irrigate the soil every 1-2 weeks, but only if it has been perfectly dry for at least one day; when there are atmospheric precipitations, or if itís cloudy, we can suspend watering. We should remember anyhow that watering should be carried out by wetting the soil deep down.
Fertilization Onoclea sensibilis : During the summer period usually it isnít necessary to fertilize shrubs; when planting newly, letís remember to add a slow release granular fertilizer, or mature manure to the ground. Letís also check for symptoms of nutritional lacking, to correct with specific fertilizations.
Treatments Onoclea sensibilis : 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.
