What are the tips to grow Euphorbia Portuguese velvet successfully.


It is a good idea to apply an organic amendment or a complete fertilizer every year at the beginning of the vegetation. When planting, make sure to water well. Although it can be planted all year round, we recommend planting from September to November. Euphorbia will thrive in poor calcareous soil as long as it is well drained. Prefer pruning in the fall using gloves. Indeed, the latex it contains is toxic and can cause irritation.
