    Fragrant herbs, mint and lemon balm are good for everyone, but it painfully grows. You do not have time to look around, and the plants are already occupying neighboring beds. I came up with my own way of “restricting freedom” of these herbs and have been using it for many years
    I took an unnecessary saucepan (it suits a bucket), I did holes at the bottom.

    She poured garden soil and planted young bushes of lemon balm and mint - in separate containers. Watering. The plants have taken root perfectly.

    In the pan for the plants, the care is very simple-to remove the weeds that have appeared and water, sometimes to loosen the ground. In the autumn I cut the balm, dry branches are removed.
    I leave the pan for winter in place, I do not cover it. In the spring, when the first leaves appear, I pour a bit of fresh soil to the plants.
    I don’t use any fertilizers - lemon balm and mint grow well without fertilizing.
    And most importantly, the plants do not grow and do not take up much space.

    The stalk under the fruit trees is not necessarily digging. You can choose the option, when it is planted lawn grass, clover, or even bulbous and melkolukovichnye flowers. This method has its pros and cons. The positive thing is that the roots of the trees do not overheat in the summer, and the turf protects very well from the frost. The looseness of the soil is provided by earthworms, and the dead grass is an excellent natural organic fertilizer. Due to this, the soil structure only improves, and you no longer need to dig and weed. However, without p digging in the soil, pests will be wintered, so in this case regular garden treatments are needed.

    If you neglect the preparation of young trees for the cold, they may simply not survive until next spring. Firstly, their root system is still poorly developed, and it must be protected from freezing. Secondly, the bark of young trees requires protection. From the differences in daily temperatures at the beginning and at the end of winter, it can crack, and cracks are open gates for diseases and pests. In addition, tender bark is a favorite treat of rodents and hares that can bring a tree to death. Thirdly, during dry, warm autumn, the moisture reserve of plants is depleted, and this greatly reduces their winter hardiness.
    To avoid these problems, the autumn care of young trees should be started with top dressing (only if the tree was planted more than a year ago: earlier, it was enough for those fertilizers that were planted during planting). Phosphate-potassium fertilizers should be introduced into the stem circles during surface digging. To protect plants from pests, it is necessary to tidy up the garden: pests and pathogenic bacteria like to winter in plant debris. After this, the trees should be whitened using a chalk solution. Whitewashing will protect them from pests, and from the evil spring sun. In late autumn, if there was practically no rainfall, you need to properly water the tree, and better - warm water. After this, it is necessary to mulch the near-stem circle with peat or sawdust. Then the shtamb should be wrapped with matting (someone uses old nylon tights) to protect the tree from rodents and hares. For the most sensitive, heat-loving trees, shelter from wooden shields will be required. Throughout the winter, snow should be thrown to the stem to protect the plant from frost.

    At the end of the season, many kennels arrange promotions, when you can buy plants with a very large discount. If you, too, did not resist the discounts, consider some features of planting a plant with a closed root system in the autumn.

    Do not spare the pot - take better the plant! Do not pull it out of the container, but simply gently cut it and release the root system with an earthen lump.
    Closely inspect the roots. If the plant has been in the ground for a long time, most likely, its roots are intertwined. Landing in this form can
    lead to the fact that the bush will very slowly take root or even die. Gently crush part of the soil between the roots. All the roots that have grown outside the earthy coma, interlacing at the bottom and along the walls of the pot, cut.
    Form a small hill in the landing pit, put a plant on it and spread the roots over the surface of the mound. Fill with earth and pour.
    If the seedling is large enough, in the spring, before the buds swell, shorten its branches by one-third.

    Five vegetables that are easy to grow
    From my own experience I was convinced that there are plants that do not require special conditions for growing and care. Their seeds sprout easily in almost any soil and under any weather conditions. I am sure that these crops are a real find for beginner gardeners who can get a good harvest with a high guarantee. What are these cultures?
    1. Leaf salad. It can be sown every two weeks. After sowing, the soil is kept moist and after 3-4 weeks, vitamin salads are prepared.
    2. Spinach. Cold-resistant plant. Shoots withstand frosts to minus 6 degrees. Plant spinach in a sunny or lightly shaded place, water regularly. Young spinach leaves gather, when in length they are no more than 5-6 cm. Sow new seeds every 10-12 days.
    3. Zucchini. Plant seeds when the threat of frost passes. In warm soil zucchini seeds are enough for ten days to germinate. Do not over-moisten and thicken the planting! Sow at a distance of 1-1,6 m. The best predecessors are tomatoes, onions, potatoes, cabbage, root crops, beans.
    4. Radish. You can sow as soon as the soil ripens for planting. Do not forget to water, otherwise the roots will become hard and fibrous. Together with the radish on one garden can be sowed spinach, it protects root crops from damage. If you sow radish several times a season, then the next crop is carried out when the first leaves are planted on previously sown plants. It is best to place the radish after the nightshade, cucumber and beans.
    5. Beans will not cause trouble even for a novice gardener. It is enough just to plant the grains in warm soil to a depth of 3-4 cm. The distance between the rows is -40-50 cm and in the rows -10-15 cm from each other. Two beans are placed in the hole. They grow crops in areas protected from cold winds, which significantly increases productivity. It is good to place it in the aisles of a young garden. The best predecessors are cucumbers, cabbage, tomatoes, potatoes.

    A fairly common mistake of novice gardeners is to plant more often and denser, since one does not believe that a huge oak or raspberry overgrown will grow from a small twig. As a result, after a few years, the branches of the tree close the house, the roots raise paths or destroy the foundation, it becomes uncomfortable to care for the plant. Yes, and the trees themselves with too thick planting do not have a good life - they lack nutrition and sunlight.
    When purchasing the planting material, please consult with the sellers, at what distance the plants should be relative to each other, their optimum amount on the site. There are varieties of cherries self-pollinating, and there are self-fruit, and to obtain a crop it is necessary to have at least 2-3 plants. For now, cherries are not very large, arrange them according to the recommendations for planting each variety.

    Planted a couple of years ago used saplings of cherry 3 varieties - 2 different varieties per hole. I thought that suddenly one would not take root - so the other is. Imagine, all 6 took root! Now I don’t know what to do with them - either remove the second, or leave it? Will cherries interfere with each other?

    Compact but beautiful garden
    My country plot is small, and I only had a garden on it. However, now decided to allocate a small area under the garden, and I need trees that will not grow too much. What do you advise?

      Among small fruit trees, standard column-shaped varieties of apple trees are popular. They grow to 2-2,5 m and do not need special care. Their crowns are narrow, up to 40 cm. And the yield of such apple trees is very high. According to statistics, the plantings of such apple trees give 5-6 times more fruits than ordinary ones. Another plus of such plants is ease of care and pruning; you can reach any shoot. In a small area, you can also plant trellis forms of fruit crops. They take up little space, the crown is fixed on the trellis, easily formed. Of the shrubs that take up little space, we can recommend barberry, rosehip, viburnum, hawthorn, and fieldberry. Decorate the garden and rhododendrons, spirea, mock, lilac.
