Fouli, the arabic jasmine

Foulie with the strong sweet aroma that floods the summer nights! It is also called Arabic jasmine, although, in fact, its origin is from China. A favorite climbing ornamental plant, the peach stands out for the great fragrant white flowers that appear from early spring to autumn. It also features distinctive leaves that differ from other types of jasmine as they are round, larger and more glossy. The bud is planted both in the garden and in a pot, has a relatively slow growth and can reach a height of 2-3 meters. With regard to jasmine varieties and varieties, besides the classic peach, quite common is the double pearl or grapefruit that has a very impressive big flower, but it lacks fragrance intensity.

What kind of conditions does the chef want to thrive?

In order to form a rich flowering, the pearl needs sun exposure, especially in spring and early summer which is the critical flowering season. The higher the sunshine, the richer the flowering and the larger the flowers. Of course, caution is needed, as the intense sunshine of the July-August summer months may cause burns in the leaves. Also, we should note that it is not cold-resistant. Fruit requires a rich, fertile, relatively acidic soil that ensures good drainage. If Frangipani planted in a pot, we get a special mold for acidophilus plants with perlite for better ventilation. At the bottom of the pot, we always place a 2-3 cm layer of gravel or small pebble for better drainage.

What is the need for watering and fertilizing?

Fruit needs watering once a week in spring and autumn and requires more watering in the summer and lighter in winter. We must keep in mind that the face has a sensitive root system and any excess can create a problem. Many times the yellowing of the leaves, especially the lower ones, is due to excessive watering. With regard to fertilization, we fertilize once a month from the beginning of spring to autumn mid-full fertilizer to achieve balanced growth and prolonged flowering.

How is the fig tree pruned and how is it multiplied?

We prune the bean at the end of February – early March, after the end of the winter frost. Pruning should be strict to create a compact shape and to ensure satisfactory growth and flowering. Also, the mullet is multiplied by grafts quite easily. We plant a cut branch of a bud in a small pot using rosette hormone. After 1-1.5 months in a cool and shady environment, the plant will have roots and can be transplanted into a larger pot or garden.
