    Iris pseudacorus (Iris pseudacorus)

    The people call him water. The plant is a coastal plant, but it can be planted in a pond to a depth of 30-40 cm. It grows and blooms better on fertile soil with abundant watering. Can be planted in full sun and partial shade.
    Propagated by seeds (sown before winter) and vegetatively (from May to August) - by parts of rhizomes with buds.
    In treatment
    Broth for edema, internal bleeding, heart disease: 1 tbsp. dry rhizomes pour 0,4 liters of boiling water, cook over low heat for 15 minutes, leave for 1 hour, drain. Drink 1/3 tbsp. 3-4 times a day.

    Broth for algodismenorrhea, metrorrhagia: 1 tsp. dry rhizomes pour 250 ml of boiling water, cook over low heat for 15 minutes, leave for 1 hour, drain. Drink 50 ml 4 times a day. Decoction is also rinsed with throat abscesses, toothache.
    Juice for toothache and stomatitis: chop fresh rhizome, squeeze out the juice. Lubricate the gums several times a day, rinse your mouth and drink 1 tsp. juice 3-4 times a day, diluting it 1/3 tbsp. water.

    Bearded irises transplanted every 2 years. I do this after the flowering, in July. Only the roots should be handled carefully so as not to damage them. I have irises in a sunny place.

    I pour sand under the rhizomes and do not deep-set them down so that the "backs" are at the level of the soil surface and warm up during the remainder of the summer. If the rhizomes are covered with earth, irises for the next year will not please with flowering.

    Heard somehow about the repairing irises. Do they bloom until late autumn, how does the repairing raspberry bear fruit until frost?

      Repairing varieties of irises really bloom repeatedly during the same growing season. A prerequisite for this is proper care. In the spring, as soon as the snow falls, you need to remove the mulch from the landings.
      Well-sprinkled soil fertilize the infusion of mullein and ash. In late May, once again feed the plants with a daily infusion of ashes and green fertilizer from nettle and dandelion. For the prevention of fungal diseases from the middle of June, three times, approximately in 10 days, treated with a microbial preparation to protect plants from fungal and bacterial diseases. After 1-th flowering, cut the stems. A week after the cut, the plants are fed with the infusion of ash and green fertilizer. In early August, add superphosphate and potassium sulfate.

    From the swamp - to the front garden
    A couple of years ago, planted in the roadside ditch our usual yellow iris. In the summer, he blossomed well and tied seeds - like large brown tablets. I want to try to sow them. When and how is this best done?

      It is better to do it in October. Now cut the boxes without removing the seeds from them. Let them lie on the street in a not too dry place. And in October, husk the seeds and stick them in the selected piece of the ridge in the greenhouse, 3 × 3 cm, to a depth of 1,5 cm. Already in June, you will have 10-centimeter seedlings that can be planted in a not too dry place, but not at all not necessarily "knee-deep" into the water! They will completely grow among ordinary flowers in a combined flower bed.

    Transplant varietal irises
    I have wonderful varietal irises growing in my flower garden - my sister brought rhizome from the south. The plant has taken root. Now I am sharing with the neighbors I beauty.
    The best time to transplant and divide the rhizome is a week after the irises have faded. Carefully dig up the rhizome and divide it into several parts. Each should consist of rhizomes (its length should not exceed 3 cm J), cut J leaves and roots.
    In order not to carry diseases and pests, rinse the delicate with a weak solution of potassium permanganate, and then dry 2-3 in a draft (but not in the sun!). Then put on the flower bed. Plant more often than through 20 cm from each other is not worth it, irises like space. If the weather is not too hot and the soil is wet, pour through 2-3 days. In July, be sure to feed the plant with mineral fertilizers.
