Peonies: we divide and transplant
August-September is the best time for dividing and replacing pions.
Python grades are divided into five main types: non-maritime, semi-double, double, Japanese and anemoid.
According to the terms of flowering, they are early (they blossom up to 10 June), medium (from 15 to 25 in June) and late (from 25 to 30 June).
Peonies like open sunny places, slightly shaded in the midday hours. This is very important, because in the shade the plants do not bloom.
Soils for them are suitable for any, but still better grow on loam, flavored with organic.
Therefore, if there is sandy loam soil on your site, add clay to it. Pits under the planting need deep and wide (up to 50 cm) - on this depends the longevity and ornamentality of the bush.
Pour the prepared pits for two thirds with a mixture of overgrown manure and turf.
It is desirable to add 500 g of fertilizer. 200 g ashes and, if the soil is acidic, 200 g slaked lime. All this carefully mix, pour a layer of fertile soil and before planting, pour water.
The best planting material is the chunks with 3-6 kidney taken from young shrubs.
Very large roots shorten, and slices sprinkle with charcoal.
Each root is treated with a pink solution of potassium permanganate.
Place the delenka in the center of the pit so. so that the top part of it is at 2-3 cm below the soil level.
After landing abundantly flood new settlers to fill all the voids between the roots.
If the little girl "pusyadet", lift it: when deepening, the peony develops poorly and does not bloom.
