What does the cinnamon look like?
The Zimterle is a tall shrub that bears up to 15 centimeters long flower spikes from July to September. These can bloom white or pink. Visually, the fragrant bush looks like the Buddleja (butterfly tree). The bush itself can grow up to 3 meters! Just imagine how it has to smell. A dream, right?
This is the perfect location for the cinnamon
If you want to get the cinnamon in the garden, think about a good place. Ideal, for example, right next to the terrace, as here the aroma comes to its best advantage. Never place several aromatic plants next to each other. Although the cinnamon harmonizes visually with other aromatic plants, the odors can get in the way.
The Zimterle, by the way also called Scheineller or Silberkerzenstrauch, prefers a half-shady location on a moist soil. And this should have a pH between 4.5 and 7, so be angry. If the pH value is wrong, you have to help with fertilizer. You can easily test the pH value of the soil in your garden. Here is a video tutorial. Furthermore, the soil in your garden must be sandy-loamy if you want the cinnamon to thrive in it.
Cinnamon is very easy to care for
Zimterlen are above all one thing: easy to clean. They are perfect plants for those who do not have a green thumb. You only have to pay attention to this during care:
You only have to water the cinnamon when the summer is very hot and dry. Then the casting is even very important because the plant can not tolerate drought.
You really do not have to cut back the Zimterle. It is recommended, however, to thin out the plant slightly in March. Only if you want to rejuvenate the bush, you should radically cut it back.
The cinnamon is very hardy. If you plant them in the garden, you do not have to protect them from the cold. If you have planted the cinnamon in a bucket, it is advisable to wrap the bucket with some winter protection fleece. The cold can eventually reach the roots through the vessel and damage it.
