|Temperatures Rhododendron metternichii
continental : Locate this plant in a partially shady spot, where it is exposed to sunrays during the coolest hours of the day.
alpine : Let's favour partially shaded places for the The Rhododendron metternichii , where they can enjoy direct sunlight for some hours a day.
mediterranean : The Rhododendron metternichii prefers cool and not too sunny spots; therefore let's choose a position in which it is exposed to solar rays only during the coolest hours of the day.
continental : Water regularly, every 1-2 weeks, wetting the soil deep down, but waiting for the substratum to dry completely between a watering and the other; avoid leaving stagnant water. Usually 1-2 buckets of water are used.
alpine : We suggest regular watering with 0-1 buckets of water about every 2-3 weeks, waiting for the soil to dry between one time and the other.
mediterranean : Every 0-1 weeks we should intervene with water, irrigating the soil only if it is dry; we suggest avoiding water stagnations by using 2-3 buckets of water.
Feed Rhododendron metternichii : Letís add some organic fertilizer, or a slow release fertilizer to the soil of newly planted shrubs; letís also check for nutritional lacking, which can be cured with specific fertilizations.
Adversity Rhododendron metternichii : Summer treatments should be applied only in cases of displayed infesting; a dry climate favours the development of ticks and rust. During this period of the year, since there are many useful insects in the garden, it is advisable to avoid using wide-range products, favouring the use of specific products against each type of parasite. Letís apply the treatments during early morning or evening hours.
