When the Summer season fades into Fall, we obsess over one last-standing flowering shrub: the Hydrangea ( known as Hortensia in Spanish).
These beautiful delicate flowers have special needs which require special attention a care –
- The Hydrangeas is know for its exceptional thirst for water.
In fact it’s name hide a gardening tip: The name hydrangea originates from two Greek words: “hydro,” a prefix meaning “water,” and “angeion,” meaning “vessel” or “container.” Together, the rough translation is “water vessel,” which refers to the flower’s high demand of water.
- Hydrangeas are also prone to diseases, especially those spread by wet leaves – such as powdery mildew and leaf spot.
- These flowers also requires a moist yet not too wet soil for best results.
- Although Hydrangeas need plenty of light, they dislike direct sun, heat and wind which dry their leaves and bleach the flowers – and do best in partial shaded plots and net houses.
NaanDanJain Peru provide a comprehensive solution to all these needs in this Turn key project of 5 Ha. in this hilly area of Colombia:
Protected by the net houses, the Hydrangeas receives it’s water and fertilization directly to the root zone, keeping the leaves dry and the soil constantly moist while saving water.
This is achieved using NaanDanJain’s TopDrip Pressure compensating irrigation:
- excellent at variable topography
- high uniformity
- Cascade labyrinth incorporated for maximal clog resistance
- Protection from root intrusion
- Unique double self-cleaning mechanism
- Large water passages for optimal durability at low flow rates
- Multiple channel water inlet for operation under heavy dirt load
- Close dripper spacing creates a continuous wetted strip
The line are equipped with Lateral Flush Valves for effective dripline maintenance.
