Question: Advice on broom


Hi Floresperto,
they gave me a broom in a pot about 40 cm high. How should I treat it? How many times a week do I have to wet it? Can you stand on the terrace? Are you afraid of cold, heat or direct exposure? Thanks in advance

Broom: Answer: Advice on the broom


Dear Sandro,
the broom (genista) is a plant that prefers well-drained soils, not too rich in organic substances, and very sunny. So I suggest you place it in the garden or on a balcony, in a sunny area, wetting it once every three to four days depending on the season and the temperature, avoiding water stagnation.
It is a plant that does not fear the cold, so it can certainly be kept outside even during the winter period. This is some general information. If you are interested in more detailed information, do not hesitate to contact us again (don't forget, however, to tell us what species your broom belongs to, if you know it).
