Fruit Plants

Those that are not fruit trees but that fructify following the same process, are called fruit plants. Differently from fruit trees, the fruit plants are associable to vines, shrubs, small bushes and all those kinds of plants whose fruits can be grown in small places and do not require much space as fruit trees would do. These plants, such as strawberry plants, all types of berries plants, olive plants and similar, follow almost the same lifecycle of a big fruit tree. To be sure we can handle the process of growing fruit plants, there is just a few simple rules we have to follow.Being smaller than trees, the fruit plants need less room to be grown on, and they actually fit in small places like terraces or vegetable gardens (suitable for strawberries who need to be grown most preferably on the ground). Since most of them will grow in a bush shape, ... continua

The seeds of fruit plants can be found both in grocery stores or supermarkets, in order to be sow and grown in small boxes. When the seeds germinate and the small plant is strong enough to be moved to a bigger location, get the soil ready to welcome the newcomer. Soil ,or the mold, in the vase should not be too heavy on nutrients otherwise the plant would suffocate. Use light mold and mix it with a little bit of fertilizer. Fertilize only once a year, rather with organic manure although complex mineral fertilizer is good as well.When putting the first plant on the ground, follow some simple rules. First you dig a hole, big enough to let the roots fit it. When the plant has been placed under ground, press the mold on its roots to make it stick to them, so it will not move. Once it is all covered up, obviously leaving out the body of the plant, you can water abundantly, and spread the fertilizer after a couple of days. Choose the right fertilizer for each plant, ask for help when you buy it.Fruit plants like to be placed in temperate areas not to high on altitude, in order to be fed by not too strong sun light and not to suffer because of too low temperatures. If you want a harvest that goes a little bit further down the cold season, cover them up with a tarpaulin. When you want to grow these plants in a vase, you can definitely do it all year long, the ideal time to settle them down would be the end of the year, during the fall season, or at the beginning of spring.
