    In my collection there was a beautifully flowering liana from Africa - Tecomaria Cape.
    Finding that the liana grows fast and has a powerful root system, immediately planted the plant in 5 l pot (bottom - drainage), in a universal soil with the addition of bone meal and wood ash (according to 1 tbsp). In the summer I kept in the garden, watered abundantly, but without stagnation of water. In winter I transferred it to a room with a temperature of about + 5 deg., Moistened rarely and meagerly.
    In the spring of this year, the plant needed the capacity of 10 l. Long shoots shortened by a third and carried the tekomaria into the garden: first put in a light shadow, so that it would adapt, then - in a sunny place. The more light, the more abundant the bloom.
    Feeded in the spring and summer of complex mineral and organic fertilizers, alternating, every 10 days and after abundant watering.
    Propagated the plant, rooting the stem cuttings with 3-4 nodes in peat with sand (1: 1). In the summer under the can, roots appeared during 30-40 days. "Teplichku" periodically ventilated.
    Diseases on the plant did not observe. But the whitefly in the autumn pestered, I had to fight the pest with special preparations.

    An unusual creeping plant appeared on the site - the leaves are similar to linden leaves, but some are rough, they stick to the clothes - you can’t tear it off, the fruits are green, with longitudinal light green stripes, the size of a walnut, oval, similar to feijoa fruits, but soft, easy to crush, inside the white loose flesh - what is it? Who knows?

    If you are planning to make an arbor in a curling plant, but you want them to be not only decorative, but also yield useful fruits, use vegetable cultures with long stems (beans, cucumbers, zucchini, patissons, lyuff, etc.) instead of flower vines. They grow rapidly, they have thick foliage and cute flowers. Only the fruits of courgettes and scallops are torn off by young people until they cut off their weight with a whip.
    Every year I make out with so curly vegetables the open verandah in the country house. I plant seeds in late April in peat pots. At the end of May I start to temper the plants, opening the windows in the afternoon. In early June, I plant seedlings in a permanent place at intervals of 0,60,8 m. A week later I feed the planting with a solution of bird droppings (1: 15) or cow dung (1: 10). In the future I spend fertilizing twice a month. To plants are more bushy, I pinch their shoots.

    Kobei curls very well, clinging to any support with antennae, which are located at the end of the leaves. In June, the Kobei blossomed gorgeously, and in July, when the heat came, the blossom slightly stopped.
    That was until August, and when the air temperature dropped, the kobea again gave out a burst of flowering. It bloomed to frost. That's just the seeds of kobei I did not find, did not form. Later, I learned that a kobe is a Mexican liana that grows up to 4 m in the homeland. Well, in our area it grows like an annual, so the seeds do not ripen - they do not have time.
    Care of the plant is not at all complicated. Fertilized with fertilizing for flowers and bird droppings.
    Top dressing very carefully: if you give too much nitrogen to the vine, it will intensively release the leaves, and the flowers are very small.
    And one more surprising fact: the more acidic the earth, the more saturated red shade the kobe flowers acquire; if there is a lot of lime in the soil - there is a lot of blue pigment in the flower petals.
    Loosening, watering - everything is as usual. Plant a kobe, and you cannot take your eyes off her!

    I have a small plot of land, and a part of it is occupied by fruit trees. And you want to plant flowers different.
    At first I planted all the famous Ipomoea, then I was given seeds of dolichos (decorative beans). And last year the seeds of kobei were caught selling. She really liked her spectacular bells. Seeds in kobei are large, flat. Has planted in the middle of March on seedlings on one seed in big glasses from under sour cream in the usual garden ground. Of the five seeds, four rose. Kobei grew quickly, after a couple of weeks, pinched her for better bushing. In May, brought the bushes into the garden in the penumbra for quenching, and at the end of May they landed them in a sunny place. Problems with transplantation did not arise. All started well, quickly went into growth, increasing the green
    mass. After the transplantation, she immediately sent the kobe tails to the support, and she began to braid it. I kept coming and looking for the buds. Finally, I saw some unusual boxes with wings, these were the buds. They quickly grew, then cracked and a flower appeared from the middle - a huge bell with a diameter of 7-8 cm with large stamens.
    I bought kobei seeds with blue flowers, and the flower turned greenish-white, I was surprised, but still rejoiced - it was very beautiful. During the day, several times approached the kobe and noticed that the flower began to change color: first, light bluish, then darker. And by the end of the second day of flowering, the bell became a thick blue-violet color. As the flowers were revealed more and more, on the bush they were multi-colored. The beauty!

    Is it true that kvokmolite practically does not tolerate a transplant? How, then, is it better to propagate?

    • Galina

      First of all, you need to decide which kvokkolite grows in you. Gardeners, as a rule, give preference to such types: lamellar lobate (with heart-shaped three-lobed leaves and elongated flowers collected in unilateral inflorescences), fiery red (with heart-shaped leaves and scarlet tubular flowers), pinnate (with openwork leaves and numerous stellate carmine-red white, and pink flowers), the Slomater (with palmetto-dissected leaves and bright red flowers). These annual thermophilic vines originate from Central and South America. Among them, the pinnate does not tolerate transplantation alone. Its seeds are immediately sown to a permanent place in the open ground in late April - early May. Before planting them for a day soak. So that the seeds sprout faster, and the shoots are not damaged by frost, a kind of a small greenhouse is built over the crops. Seeds of the lobed and sloe quarticle of the Slaughter are planted in seedlings in March in open ground, when the threat of frost passes. Kvokoklit fiery red sows in the open ground in April - May.
      Another way to grow a kamoklite is in a container. Seeds are sown in March in a large pot or box, which after the end of the frost is exposed to the garden. And do not forget that all kamoklitam need support.

    To decorate the corner of the terrace with climbing plants, it is not necessary to plant them in the ground and arrange a complex system of supports. It is enough a few lianas grown in pots, set next to the grid, folded into a wide "pipe". Plants very quickly weave the net.

    Tell me, what climbing plants have beautiful fruits?

    • Marina Ivanovna Grishina, Korolev, Moscow Region.

      Very beautiful fruits in dolichosa are flat beans of dark purple-purple color that appear in August. This plant is used for planting gazebos, fences, balconies, gratings. Its stem reaches a length of 3 m. The leaves are large, reddish-violet in color, very decorative. Large, irregularly shaped purple flowers are collected in a racemose inflorescence and look like a decorative bean. Blooms from July to frost. In the thaladians of the dubious family of pumpkin fruits bright red with green stripes, like small cucumbers. This perennial climbing plant. The rough stalk, with the help of a mustache, climbs to a height of up to 4 m. The leaves are broad, oval, and serrate at the base, notched. The flowers are large, they blossom from July to September. To produce ornamental fruits, plants are artificially pollinated.

    Of climbing plants I most like Kobei, but it does not bloom. Why?

    • Olga Vyacheslavovna Taranova, Kologriv, Kostroma region.

      Kobeiu is used for vertical gardening: this plant produces luxurious green curtains adorned with large flowers. But to see them, it is necessary early, in late February - early March, to plant seeds for seedlings. Shoots appear through 2 - 3 weeks. As soon as the seedlings are formed the first real leaves, they are transplanted into containers according to 3 - 4 pieces and tied to the support. When the plants grow, they can themselves cling to the support. On the balcony, the Kobei is taken out at the beginning of June, at the same time planted in the garden.
      The plant needs loose, nutritious soil, regular watering and spraying. Each 2 weeks Kobei fed full mineral fertilizer, the tips of shoots periodically cut off.

    The Garden Star
    One day I forgot to close Kobe in the fall. Imagine my surprise when the frost-covered plant was not frozen at all. This one-year piacha is able to withstand cooling to -NNUMX ° (up to -3 ° if it grows near the wall of the house). In the case of warm autumn with a weak night frost, Kobei becomes a real star of the garden.
    This plant is in 20-x of April. Seeds should be fresh. Before planting, soak them in a cotton pad or napkin for 2-3 days, until they proklyutsya. Sprouted seeds lay flat on the ground and fall asleep on the ground at 1 see. As soon as the "loops" appear, I move the kobe from the cabinets to the window sill. On the balcony I bear only after the deployment of the cotyledons (but in the first days at night I take away).
    After the appearance of these leaves and antennae, I substitute a stick for support for the plant, and I plant it in the ground with it. For convenience, I stick a hard wire next to me in the form of the letter “P. so that I can stretch the guide ropes from the fan to the arch. The soil should be fertile (a compost bucket per plant and half a glass of ash), and the place should be sunny.
    In the first month after planting, a kobe grows slowly, it requires shading from the sun. Otherwise, white spots may appear on the leaves - burns. On the second half of June, the plant quickly starts growing, and in mid-August blooms.
    The secret to success is abundant watering every other day, in the heat - a bucket of water per plant, because kobe is a noble water loaf. She also loves green feeding (infusion of nettles, swans), it is advisable to spend them 3-4 times during the summer, starting in mid-June.

    Some plants are able to grow in the crevices of the walls. Using this feature, you can create your own vertical garden. But to sow seeds in narrow crevices is not so easy. This will require a little trick. Lay the seeds on the palm and attach it to the edge. Put on the palm of the tube for drinks and gently blow into it. Together with the flow of air, seeds will fly into the gap. For such crops are suitable seeds of young, gypsophila and other plants that can live on stony soils.
