    I admire in my flower garden an unusual liana of the Vyunkovy family - the morning glory of Mina Lobat. The shoots of this annual reach a length of 3 m or more.
    The culture blooms from mid-summer to October. Many original oblong (15-20 cm) yellow-red inflorescences resemble either bananas or parrots in shape. During the season, like chameleons, they gradually change color from red to orange, yellow and cream - a real fireworks display! Or a round dance of parrots!

    Lover of "tasty"
    I grow morning glory through seedlings, sowing in March. I move to open ground in early May at a temperature of at least +20 degrees. I have been preparing the soil since the fall: I have been adding compost or rotted manure for digging - the more, the better. 4) The plant loves watering, but without stagnant water. Blooms profusely in sunny places. f I feed the morning glory 3 times a season with mineral complex fertilizers for flowering (according to the instructions).
    From powdery mildew

    In the case of prolonged rains, powdery mildew can affect the vine. Help processing a solution of 50 g of soda ash in 10 liters of warm water with 50 g of laundry soap, grated on a fine grater.
    Successful experiments
    To collect the seeds without letting them get enough sleep, at the end of August I tie the green boxes of morning glory with cotton sacks. Every 5 days I take them off and collect dried seed material. Then I return the bags to their original place.
    Since last year, I have been sowing 2-3 seeds of vines in large hanging flowerpots. The plant looks very original in them. In September, I bring the flowerpots into the room, and here the seeds have time to ripen well.

    Ipomoea in a hug with a fence
    This year I planted morning glory on the south side of the fence. And now in September I still admire her. Of course, when growing plants in the open sun, there are some features. The fact is that by noon his buds are closed. Therefore, if you want to achieve abundant flowering, it is advisable to choose a partial shade for the vine. It must be protected from winds and drafts, because the shoots and flowers of the plant are fragile. Ipomoea seeds I once sowed before winter. Since then, the beauty is sown herself.

    I give her a place where she does not clog the cultural land. For example, on the lawn. I remove the layer of sod, dig up the soil and season with biohumus. In the center of the developed area, I install a pyramidal trellis and sow seeds around it. By the way, now is the right time to collect them. Instead of wilted buds, brown boxes appear. They will soon dry out and slightly open. I pour the seeds from the box immediately into the bag. Their germination is maintained for three years.

    This year I first sowed Ipomech lobate. On the package with seeds, in the picture, attention was drawn to the mixed and bright red-yellow coloration of flowers, and from behind it was written that the plant in height reaches 5 meters. I also thought that once the liana is large, then the inflorescence is appropriate. Nothing like this! They at me have appeared precisely the same size, as well as in a picture, all centimeter on 3 in length. That is, the picture did not diminish anything, but I do not know what I imagined. I have written to myself a few garden magazines and will read them: I do not know enough information on the seeds!

    Ipomoea is a relative of an ordinary bindweed, but how beautiful she is! The flowers are huge, up to 15 cm in diameter, in color - white, blue, red, purple, purple, as well as two and three-color. I especially like the large-flowered varieties Flying Saucer, Scarlett and Giselle.

    Growing morning glory through seedlings. I sow seeds in late April - early May. This should not be done before, since seedlings grow quickly and it is quite difficult to untangle them later. I pre-soak the seeds for a day, and after hatching I sow in 300-400 ml cups. The plant does not like transplantation. I put the support in a cup and, as it grows, I tie the liana to the support.
    The morning glory blossoms from the middle of summer in to the frost, however, so that 5 it remained decorative all this time, immediately after withering the flowers must be removed
    Ipomea is afraid of frosts, so I transplanted it only in early June (when the red viburnum blossoms). I choose a sunny, protected from the wind place, immediately install a support (wire) and tie the transplanted plants. I hide them for the first 1-2 weeks with agrobusiness.
    To protect against slugs pour the crushed eggshell, and the plant itself is sprinkled with salt water. Ipomea loves the fertile land, but if you fertilize it during growth, it will not flow well.

    In general, the morning glory blossoms from the middle of summer until frost. The very first lower flowers (2-3 pcs.) I leave on the seeds. The rest I cut off after withering to prolong the flowering.

    When buying seeds for the new season, I acquired the unfamiliar morning glory of Mina Lobata. Sowed it in mid-March. Young plants do not tolerate transplantation; therefore, sowing was carried out with dry seeds directly into peat pots with moistened soil mixture. She covered the pots with foil and put it in a warm, bright place. A few days later - earlier than indicated on the bag. - seedlings began to appear. Pots set on the windowsill.
    Seedlings began to grow and curl quickly, so I had to install supports from wooden skewers for skewers. Soon they were not enough - I replaced the skewers with a more solid support. Until mid-April, as an additional illumination, it turned on a fluorescent lamp. Before planting in the open ground, the seedlings were tempered, and already in early May the plants “moved” to the open
    soil, landed them at a distance of 40 cm from each other and set pegs near each and pulled vertically the trellis. Then - traditional watering, cultivation, top dressing.
    Morning glory did not bloom right away. First, she grew long - up to 3 m - lashes with a mass of beautiful leaves, and only at the end of July did unilateral inflorescences 15-25 cm long stretch toward the sun. The flowers in the brush look like peppercorns. The buds are dark red in color, but as they unfold, the color of the flowers changes from orange to creamy white. In one inflorescence, flowers of different colors are simultaneously present. At the peak of flowering, the liana turns into a colorful waterfall, a blazing bonfire. Is it possible not to fall in love with such beauty ?!
    For the seeds of this amazing plant I have already lined up a whole queue!

    About morning glory ...
    These flowers are for those who get up early. They blossom at dawn. We, for example, get up at half past five and, leaving the house, already see wonderful gentle gramophones.
    I especially like the blue colors. The zev flowers are much lighter, and they seem to glow from within.
    The scientific name of the plant is Ipomoea, and it looks like our usual bindweed, only of a different color. The plant is very unpretentious. When sowing, it propagates once more by self-sowing. One problem: with direct sowing into the soil, plants come up late and do not bloom for a long time, since this is a southern liana, and our cool weather restrains its growth.
    Therefore, I grow seedlings every year, collecting my own seeds. They do well without any treatment.
    Everyone has a good morning glory, but there is one drawback: in the afternoon the flowers are closed and by the evening they wither. That's why
    these plants are for those who get up early - at least you can admire them longer. But a lot of buds grow, and the next day a new batch of flowers opens, just as beautiful!
    In the shade, the flowers last longer, but on the plant they are less than in the sun. In general, and without flowers, the liana is beautiful. I plant it around the veranda and on a special support in the form of a high pyramid, built of 5-6 wooden poles. I just stick them into the ground, and pull them down with string.
    For beauty, along with Ipomoea, I plant a little nasturtium or several bean plants. In the afternoon, when the morning glory has already closed, the vine is adorned with bean and nasturtium flowers.
    A neighbor tells me: “What is this plant that blooms only half a day? Plant something else. ”
    And I love this delicate flower and will never part with it. From early morning he meets me with flowers, and I am grateful to him. And in August, when the heat subsides, my morning glory blooms almost all day. Here it is, the “flower of the morning dawn."

    Over the years of working with a super-compacted garden, I selected the most spectacular plants and developed a number of techniques for caring for them. The first thing to consider when forming the “a la jungle” plantations I love so much is the selection of flowering vines. Amazing results showed ordinary blackberries and grape raisins. But morning glory has become the real queen of my garden.
    In the course of experiments with different varieties, I left only two of them: Nochka and Scarlett O'Xapa. I had to abandon the variety with sky-blue flowers due to late poor flowering and demanding. But the remaining two turned out to be quite enough to create compositions.
    Spreading through the garden, the morning glory forms unusual compositions from blossoming grottos, arches, green waterfalls. She irresistibly
    It is upward and grows well by self-seeding. If the soil is sufficiently fertile, the morning glory does not suffer even from excessive thickening. There is no other such plant that would be more suitable for a time-limited gardener.
    Ipomea easily bypasses obstacles on his way. The exception is a polycarbonate coating. She spends her shoots under a transparent canopy, increases the area of ​​the leaves and flourishes violently. In hot weather, the morning glory under the polycarbonate is extremely fond of sprinkling with cool water and regular top dressing with infusions of organic substances. My corporate effective "agrosup" consists of a universal mineral fertilizer, cow manure and bird droppings. After such feeding the morning glory blissfully!

    Souls do not tea in petunias! Every year they occupy all of my "tiers" of flower beds, and not just flower beds. The bushes bloom continuously and for a long time - from June to frost. But on one condition: you need to start practicing petunias in winter. And this year, in gratitude for the love and devotion, petunia presented me with a pleasant surprise.

    Cultivation of petunias I have been doing for a long time. Started with ordinary bush, in the course of time I wanted terry, lacy. And lately it has been "sick" with ampel. Last year, according to my family, I bought up all her seeds.
    She started sowing at the end of January, then she made three more calls. Since the seeds in the bags were all 6-10 pieces, each variety was sown in a personal mini-greenhouse (I make them from two parts of a plastic bottle). For sowing used universal seedlings. Seeds spread over the surface of the soil with a needle, without sprinkling anything. And to ensure a tight contact, but do not wash the seeds, moistened the crops from the spray.
    Teplichku kept in the warmth on the sunny windowsill.
    Shoots appeared on 5-10-th day (every year for me this is a moment of indescribable joy and delight, giving an inimitable charge of energy).
    Next begins a new stage - nursing seedlings. At first I water the shoots from the syringe. As soon as the crumbs are a little older, I add dry seedlings for each of the most cotyledonous leaves. Be sure to mix wood ash with it (you can just crush a tablet of activated carbon), and clean river sand will do.
    As soon as the first two real leaves appear, I start gradually accustoming the seedlings to room temperature. First, I remove the plugs from the greenhouses for a few hours, and then
    day. Sissy is not easy to get out of, but, as years of experience show, mini-greenhouses are one of the best options. I have practically no losses.
    As the seedlings grow up, they dive into glasses or pots. Sown early usually pass the next one more time.
    I live in a village. The compound is large, with a variety of animals. From those who want to not only admire the flowers, but also try to taste them, there is no end - here you have ducklings, goslings, and chickens. And although all the inhabitants have separate fenced places, I still prefer to plant petunias not in flower beds, but in containers. Moreover, in everything that comes to hand: in drawers, old pots with pots, shoes that were left alone, disused bags, as well as in purchased flowerpots and flowerpots. And to make it more reliable, I attach them on wooden chocks along the buildings or hang them on the walls and the fence. It’s more convenient to look after petunias: weeding is not required.
    The soil mixture for planting in flower pots is prepared by myself: I mix the purchased universal
    soil with garden land and a well-repaired bird litter (3: 1: 2). If there is, add perlite. Then in the summer petunias no additional fertilizing is required, just water.
    This year, June was not very warm. I went around the sissies for a long time, until they finally started to grow. Even it was necessary to save some by an epinom. And when I began to attach plants to a permanent place, a surprise waited for me: under the walls of the house and sheds, on which last year hung
    pots with petunias, I discovered a sea of ​​self-seeding.
    Seedlings grew sturdy, healthy. Over time, she overtook even hybrid beauties, moreover, some petunias even retained parental traits. Part of the bushes left where they were planted, the rest planted on flower beds. And though they blossomed later than those grown from seedlings, but the blooming turned out to be plentiful and long.
    Everyone who came to my site, admired them not
    her than from those grown from expensive seeds. Yes, and I caught myself thinking that this year from all the diversity of petunias, mi-nitunium and supertunium, the dearest to me were the simple gramophones familiar from childhood.
    Of course, new varieties are much more effective than old varieties, but they are more demanding for lighting and nutrition conditions at all stages of cultivation, starting from seedlings.

    Have you seen how petunias bloom? No, not 2-3 bush, but a whole collection of different varieties? This is admiration and delight. Fantastic fireworks of sunny, bright colors, different shades and shapes.
    Terry petunia resemble chic roses. And how splendid the lace fringe varieties!
    But there is one drawback for these flowers: all these exquisite flowers of the seeds do not give or sprout very poorly, which means that it will not be possible to multiply the plants from the harvested seeds. And what to do when you want to have such beauty the next year? I want to share my experience on how to preserve and multiply petunia.
    About three years ago I scraped out a bush of petunia and for the winter carried it to the window sill to be blackened-forged in the spring. But the plant does not tolerate the transplant and can die.
    I got used to the way of the summer cuttings of the plant, which is done from the end of July to the middle of August, so that the bush does not grow too large, but at the same time it is well rooted.
    To do this, you need to choose a petunia bush and cut it with a sharp knife, or, preferably, with a scalpel cuttings no more than 8-10. See the lower leaves from the cuttings and remove them directly into the ground in the shady spot of the garden. In the fresh air and with enough light they take root. For better rooting, the ends of the skulls are covered with corn root.
    The main secret of success: the cuttings should be cut as soon as possible into the soil. After 1-2 hours after cutting, their ability to root sharply drops, even if they were stored in wet conditions.
    When the top of the plant starts growing, you can pinch it through several sheets to get a branched bush. Before the cold snap, I carefully put the young bushes into a pot and lump them into a flat until the spring. '
    I recommend not to wait for very cold weather, but to transplant petunia, when there is still a big difference in temperatures in the street and in the apartment, so that the plant is easier to acclimatize in the apartment conditions.
    In winter, it is better to keep the petunia on the cold windows closer to the glass. In severe frosts, air from the window pane can pierce it.
    Care for plants obtained by cuttings propagation is no different from caring for seedlings grown from seeds.
    In the spring, even before landing on the garden plot, petunia can give you the first flowers at a sufficient light day or lightening.

    Most ampelnym initially (in the wild state) were creeping and ground cover plants, which the florists, attracted by spreading stems, adapted for cultivation in a suspended state. Therefore, grow on the flower beds ampelnye plants may well. True, with this
    their cultivation will require intensified control of weeds.
    To plant ampelic varieties of petunia hybrid it is desirable to select well-lit places with heavy fertile soil, not allowing it to over-wet or dry out. It is advisable to feed petunias once a week.

    My mother plants ampelian petunias in the flowerpot. I would like to try to drop them on a regular bed, so that a kind of carpet of petunia sobbing turns out. But will not it be harmful to them?

  12. Rimma Petrovna

    In the environment of flower growers, there is an opinion that it is practically impossible to grow petunia from the seeds at home. Allegedly, special conditions for light and air temperature are required for this.
    And I did it! In March, I bought seeds, sowed them on the surface of the earth in a shallow pot and covered them with glass.
    Every day he was picked up and sprayed with crops. Soon there were tiny sprouts. Since that time, additional watering irrigation has added to the spraying, and when the kids got real leaves, they saw them on separate pots. Closer to summer transplanted into containers.
    I’m sitting on the porch and admiring my beauties - they are blooming with all their might!

    The main place among the flowers is Ipomea, or farbitis. This curling plant, which, wrapped around the supports, can grow to 2 m. Ipomoe can be used for decoration of balconies, walls, verandas, arches.
    The plant likes open, sunny places, protected from cold winds. Propagate ipomei seeds or seedlings. Seeds sow in the second decade of April in a sheltered soil. In light and fertilized soils, they rise through 7-10 days. When the threat of frost passes, the plants are planted with a moist clod of earth at a distance of 40 cm from each other.
    We live in the south, so we sow the glory right in
    My wife and I were born in the countryside. After graduating from the Biological Faculty, they devoted their whole lives to the education of schoolchildren in the love of nature, and especially to the colors that brightened our existence throughout our life, delighted us with bright and magnificent flowering, as if in gratitude for love and care. With age, strength and health diminished, but the love of flowers remained the same. We grow roses and daffodils, and tulips, and irises. 6 recently, we are increasingly paying attention to unpretentious flowers, but the beauty of flowers, their size and abundance, the duration of flowering is not inferior to others.
    dug up, ground with humus. Depth of sowing up to 4 cm, distance -12 see
    Midsummer maintenance requires minimal: weeding and weeding. Flowering starts in 80-85 days, depending on care and weather. Plants bloom profusely until the frost. Seeds are harvested as they mature.
    The flowers of the morning glory are pink, crimson, purple and dark blue. They please their beauty only one day, but they are succeeded by the following. As a result, the entire bush is covered with spectacular flowers from June to cold weather. Such bushes make an indelible impression and cheer up.
    An unusually bright mixture of ipem will become the first star of the garden. Ipomian lianas can be used in the vertical gardening of the garden, for decorating balconies and arbors. Ipomea is undemanding - only a small area and reliable support are needed. But it blooms better on sunny and sheltered from the wind. For the support, you can use a mesh or a vertically stretched wire or rope. All varieties ippey are very hardy, beautifully growing in a temperate climate and blossoming continuously from June until frosts.

    The pledge of abundant flowering petunia is a rich and competent top dressing. Feed the plants through
    2 weeks after the picks. Fertilize seedlings under the root, and also do foliar top dressing on the leaves. As soon as the seedling gives 3-4 of the present leaf, the foliar top dressing is performed. Petunia is sprayed through 2-
    3 days, alternately using fertilizers for flowering plants (FERTIKA) and growth stimulants.

    What needs to be done to make the petunias blossom abundantly and magnificently?

    My mother's favorite flowers are petunias. She adores them to grow, annually selects new varieties, shares seeds with girlfriends. I want to tell you about the white-flowered petunia. This year it was really gorgeous. And all thanks to the little trick that my mother came up with.
    Paying attention that in the heat the flowers quickly fade, and after the rain fall off or lose their attractiveness, she decided to protect them with an umbrella. So there was an application to my children's umbrella, thirty years in the attic. In the heat, he pritenyal plants and was installed at an angle to the south side, and in the rain he protected from blows drops on the flowers. Incidentally, it turned out that the color of the umbrella is ideally combined with the lobelia, which my mother placed on the lower tier. Here is a "lady" under the umbrella flaunted this summer in our yard!

    Last fall, I planned to move flowering marigolds, pansies and lion's phallus to the veranda. I chose small specimens with a lot of buds. Light and heat was enough. But alas! In viola a new shoot grew, the buds did not develop, and the marigolds simply dried. The autumn was warm, and the viola bloomed for a very long time in the garden until it was covered with snow. The chrysanthemum bushes planted in the pots also froze in development, a new shoot grew, but the buds either withered or did not open. Tell me how to do it right - I will be grateful for help.
