While the calcareous plants (cistus, Montpellier maple, hawthorn ...) need a pattern ground limestone. It is important to know or to analyze the soil. Poorly prepared, any plant, even well treated, remains the target of opportunistic parasites who take advantage of his weakness.
When should I plant trees and shrubs?
Trees and shrubs grown in containers are planted throughout the year outside the periods of frost and drought. However, the best time for a quick and vigorous root extends from October to May.
