Fix a shrub to guardians


Fix a shrub to guardians:



It may happen that you have to fix a climbing shrub, or a shrub that develops long flexible branches, to guardians, in order to give the plant as a whole a more uniform and pleasant trend. Generally we use long wooden stakes or bamboo canes, but we can also find plastic stakes on the market. For a medium-sized shrub, even in pots, we will need at least three guardians, if we find them identical it is better, because the aesthetic effect will certainly be better. As well as guardians, we will need a wire-mesh of about 4-6 millimeters in diameter and a rubberized wire.
We observe the shrub and imagine to contain its base in a fairly narrow circle, about 40 cm in diameter; if the shrub is in vase the container will delimit this imaginary space. We sink at least three guardians in the ground, inserting them at regular intervals along the circumference of the circle we imagined; do not insert them perpendicular to the ground, but obliquely, so they position themselves along the sides of a large cone. We proceed by fixing the branches closest to the braces to them, using rubberized wire; we also fix the most flexible and long branches, giving them a spiral pattern along the imaginary cone delimited by the tutors. If necessary with wire, we often create additional circles between the braces, starting at about 30-40 cm from the base of the shaft. We continue always favoring a spiral pattern of the branches, so that the plant assumes a cup-like conformation. We try to fix most of the branches to the braces or wire hoops, avoiding overtightening them with the rubberized iron wire, to prevent them from being throttled, with subsequent subsequent drying.
