Description of the Houppettes tree

The aesthetics of its flowers, bright red in color, distributed thanks to very many petals and extremely fine stamens, with a pale yellow-green heart and the lightness of the very drawn foliage, makes it a shrub which "stands out" in our gardens!

The puff tree can reach a size of 3 meters in height. It can therefore also adorn a beautiful terrace.

The shrub produces numerous red, feather-shaped flowers. Every May and June.

Gardener's Info

The Shrub - tree with puffs is native to South America (Argentina, Brazil, Bolivia ...). It is for this reason that it is advisable to grow it in a container to come back in during the winter. It tolerates droughts and high temperatures well, does not need maintenance in the summer.

Pay attention to the quality of the soil when planting - in the ground or in a pot, the puff tree needs a soil rich in humus * and light. Add potting soil and sand to lighten and drain in equal amounts.

In March, prune the branches from half to half to control the size of the tree. With this pruning we will avoid too long branches which could make the tree less aesthetic and less balanced.

*(Humus = upper layer of the earth, rich in decomposed plant matter, it delivers the nutrients required for the development and growth of plants)

Flowering

When to plant the puff tree?

Put in a container in May, take shelter in the fall before the first frosts.

For plantings in the ground (hot regions), plan to protect the tree for the first year with a winter cover filled with straw to limit the effects of the cold.

Also protect the foot from the cold, with bark.

On what area?

Large trees (over 15 m high) are reserved for large gardens, with a minimum area of ​​1,500 m². In smaller gardens, prefer small ornamental trees that will not provide too much shade to other plants, lawns and homes. They reach 8-10-12 m at maturity, such as gleditsias, laburnums, Japanese maples, prunus, locust trees, ornamental apple trees or birches. Avoid weeping willows in city gardens, they are trees that end up taking up too much space.

Deciduous or coniferous?

Deciduous trees allow light to reach the ground from November to March-April, so other plantings can settle underneath. Conifers provide denser shade year-round and acidify the soil faster. Most are provided from the base, which requires more space to set up without interfering with the rest of the garden.

What tree species?

Oaks, beeches, maples and lime trees are quickly recovering, they are native. Check that the species are adapted to your regional climate (the holm oak is more appropriate in the strong heat of the South for example). Liquidambar, tulip tree, soap, ginkgo, catalpa and magnolia come from elsewhere (America, Far East), but have become acclimatized well in our latitudes. Their style is more ornamental, for an arrangement of character.

Where to install a tree in the garden?

Planted at the bottom of the garden, the trees give the impression of enlarging the latter by masking its limits. Pick one or two trees similar to those in the neighboring garden to further accentuate this feeling. This wooded strip is also conducive to biodiversity, welcoming small fauna, birds and insects. To complete and form a thick hedge, add shrubs between your tall trees.

What advantages, what disadvantages?

Trees provide shelter from the winds, but they create a drop shadow that can get in the way of flower beds and lawns.

They give an attractive relief visible from afar, which sometimes disturbs the neighbors and hides the landscape from them. Check that the view will not be obscured if you are on sloping ground.

A tree is a strong element in the composition of the garden. However, it competes in root (for water and nutrients) with shrubs and plants growing nearby. You will need to take more care of these.

To plant a tree

The tree lives much longer than the gardener! So, take some precautions when planting: For a large tree, count a diameter of 10 m of free space all around and make sure that it is at least 20 m from the house. If you plant it at the bottom of the garden, its branches should not extend beyond the fence. For small trees, count 6-10m from the house and 3-4m from the fence. If you have hard-built walkways, move the tree as far as possible so that its roots do not lift the flooring. Dig planting holes that are twice the size of the root ball, three times in compact soil. In this case, use an auger to start the hole. Water copiously and regularly when it is dry, for the first three years to ensure a good recovery.

Cut down and replant

To cut down a sick or uncomfortable tree, do not saw the trunk right through. Disconnect the bottom of the trunk, make a notch in the direction of the felling in a V-shape, then saw the other side, leaving a hinge. Push to drop in the right direction. Loosen and change part of the soil to renew the soil and fertilize it. Trees grow faster and get bigger when planted small. You will take less risk if you avoid transplanting large subjects.

Prune and prune

For all cleaning and pruning work, wear protective goggles. Also consider putting on leather garden gloves. All these operations are carried out from November to the end of February, but outside the periods of frost. The cleaning pruning removes dead wood, aerates the antlers and lightens the latter. This reduces wind resistance and the risk of falling dry or damaged branches. If you have to prune a tree, do it without altering it: choose the branches to remove according to the architecture of the tree and shorten it while preserving the general silhouette. For large trees, call a professional intaglio (selective pruning). Shred the cuttings from small branches to mulch the base of your trees during the young years (to be mixed with dead leaves and a thin layer of grass clippings). It also benefits trees that remain greedy for nutrients, such as magnolias.

To know

To stay healthy, a tree must grow while retaining its natural shape. When you have to prune it (lack of space due to poor planting distances for example), it loses its vigor, ages faster and becomes more susceptible to diseases.

4. Coat the tree with horsetail spray

  1. Leave to macerate 1.5 kg of fresh horsetail cut into pieces in 10l of water for 24 hours
  2. Simmer for about an hour
  3. Use this infusion, cold, to brush the bark of the trunk and branches
  4. Then add clay and mix until a relatively liquid porridge is obtained.
  5. Let sit for two hours and apply to the tree with a brush.

If you have the option to choose, go for a fruit tree with a straight trunk, vigorous, well-distributed side branches (the crown) and strong roots, and favor heavy, moist soil, otherwise its roots may wither.


Fargesia Nitida Gansu

A beautiful, non-tracing bamboo of medium size with an upright habit. Its foliage, fine and silky, is very pleasant to the touch.

Superb slightly drooping evergreen foliage and purple or black canes. It brings light in a hedge, in an isolated tuft or on a terrace.

The Fargesia Nitida Gansu adds lightness to your garden.

Planting advice: This rustic bamboo prefers partial shade and likes to have freshness at its base and a fairly rich soil. It has the advantage of a rapid and late growth (April to June).

The rootstock is a plant of which the part with the roots is kept and on which a graft of the desired variety is grafted in the upper part.

The rootstock serves as a nourishing support, through the roots, while the scion provides fruit of the quality of the original tree.

- - Gives the graft a better tolerance to diseases

- - Allows you to reproduce fruit trees identically

- - Accelerates the arrival of the first harvest - 1 to 2 years for a grafted fruit tree against 8 or even 15 years per sowing.

All our citrus fruits - and some other fruit trees - on sale in your nursery at Domaine Château Gaillard, are grafted fruit trees. Our fruit trees

Good to know: our teams of landscape gardeners can intervene in your home to plant, prune and maintain your plants and fruit trees.

Our nurserymen are at your disposal to give you advice on planting and maintenance.

To plant and maintain the albizia or silk tree: all the advice.

If you like it soft, light and silky, the albizia is for you. Called the silk tree, the albizia has won over many people. This plant offers beautiful pompoms of pink flowers with a soft and mellow texture. These pompoms are surrounded by thin and graphic leaves which make them even more beautiful. Here's everything you need to know about growing the silk tree.

Where and when to plant albizia?

The silk tree is not very strong. It will therefore be particularly popular in hot regions. It can be planted in northern regions, but you have to wait until the end of the frost. Planting is done in spring (March for the south and mid-May for the north) and always outside the frost period. The albizia is planted directly in the garden.

The albizia should be in full sun and sheltered from the wind, otherwise the clumps may pop out and leave the plant bare. The soil should be light and well drained.

How to plant the silk tree?

- Take an albizia plant and soak the root ball in a tub of water just before planting it.
C- Make a hole for the plant to fit into. It should be twice the size of the lawn in all directions.
- Add 10 inches of gravel or clay pebbles to the bottom of the hole to improve drainage.
- Place the grass in the center of the hole and fill it with garden soil mixed with manure or compost.
- Compact the soil with your foot.
- Form a mound of earth around the plant.
- Lots of water.
