    I'm not one of those florists who grow almost the entire encyclopedia of flowers. At one time, she concentrated her efforts on roses, peonies and petunias. I also like tulips to decorate my garden plot in spring. All of these flowers have different problems, but one thing they have in common is leaf curling. Why this is happening, I cannot understand. Help!

    • OOO "Sad"

      If this happens to a rose, there are several reasons for this. First, the steady heat. Try to hide the rose from the scorching rays of the sun, and it will surely return to normal. Secondly, powdery mildew. If this attack overtook the queen of the garden, process the bushes every 5 days with a 1% solution of Bordeaux mixture. This will help the roses heal faster.

      This can happen due to imbalance when using fertilizers. For example, roses get little potassium and more calcium nitrate.
      Peonies have a similar problem due to a banal lack of moisture. Usually, luxurious shrubs are watered every two weeks.
      But, of course, there are other reasons as well. When ants, caterpillars, ticks or other pests take a fancy to the bushes, the plants have a hard time. They weaken, the leaves curl. In this case, insecticide treatment helps.
      If there is little copper in the soil where the peonies grow, but it was often treated with a solution of potassium permanganate, the soil should be watered with copper oxychloride, which will protect the plants from fungal diseases.

      On home-grown petunia seedlings, the leaves curl due to the dry air. To prevent this from happening, you can put a container with water next to the plantings.
      You should also not overmoisten the plants in the flower bed. Over-watering leads to numerous problems for this crop.
      It is necessary to plant petunias in sunny areas. And be sure to make sure that the plant does not become a tasty "morsel" for the hordes of aphids. These small pests can be washed off with soapy water or treated with insecticide.
      If petunia leaves begin to curl, pay attention to feeding this culture, which needs soils rich in phosphorus, copper, boron and calcium. But nitrogen should not be used for some time.

    Near the end of the growing season, tulips are often affected by wet rot, or fusariosis. The plant because of this disease withers, blooms badly, flowers can curl, shrink. Infection occurs through the bottom of the bulb and roots, which weaken and become yellow-brown.

    During storage, I found infected bulbs with brown spots and a brown border on the bottom. The bulb darkens and decomposes as the disease progresses. The smell is not very pleasant. The causative agent of rot likes high temperature, therefore it is necessary to store the bulbs at a temperature not exceeding + 15 ... + 20 ° С. All bulbs that cause suspicion should be removed immediately, so it is so important to periodically check the storage.

    Before planting, in about two weeks, I process the bulbs "Fundazol". In the garden, we have a lot of places, so if I notice that the tulips were ill, I plant new bulbs in another flower bed.

    In order to enjoy the bright and long flowering of tulips on the flowerbed, it is necessary to observe some rules in growing.
    1. Before planting the bulbs on the selected site, make sure that the tulips were not grown there for three years.
    2. During the growing season, at least three top dressings should be carried out. By the appearance of tulips, you can determine which nutrients are missing plants. If the leaves have become elongated, narrow and cannot maintain an upright position - there is not enough nitrogen. If a blue tint is visible at the edges of the leaves, then there is not enough potassium and phosphorus. Fresh manure cannot be applied as organic fertilizers; it contributes to rotting of bulbs and damage to fungal diseases.
    3. To tulips for the next year, blossom large flowers, timely remove faded flowers.
    4. Bulbs of tulips can not be dried in direct sunlight, only in the shade.
    5. If you notice sick tulips, you must completely remove the plant with the onion, and disinfect the place where it grew, with manganese.

    Favorite tulips
    In October, I plant bulbs in loose and fertilized soil. Furrows do not too deep. Between the rows I leave 25-30 see. For winter I hide
    fallen leaves. In late February - early March, when the tulips start to break out of the earth, carefully remove the leaves that have overgrown for the winter. For tulips, weeding is very important, since the grass hinders the development of a good flower arrow. During flowering I loosen the soil around the bulbs, but I do it carefully so as not to damage them. Regularly watered. Sometimes I add special water to the water
    flower fertilizers. After the tulips bloom and the leaves turn yellow, I dig them out. Carefully I sort out each bulb, I remove garbage and damaged specimens. Then I soak for an hour in a pink solution of potassium permanganate. I dry the bulbs in the shade and store them in wooden boxes with holes until they are planted.
