    The main task in June is to look after the flower magnificence: weed out weeds, water and feed, remove fading inflorescences. And do not forget to enjoy the beauty of the flower beds.

    Plants in containers and hanging baskets on hot days must be watered twice a day - in the morning and in the evening.
    Flower beds need only one watering per week - provided that the soil is moistened to a depth of 25-30 cm. To preserve moisture, we mulch the soil with dry compost, mown grass, non-acid peat.
    We collect the seeds of biennials - forget-me-nots, foxglove, Turkish carnation, etc. We sow two-year-olds on a seedbed.
    We trim the hedge, cut off the faded lilac, chubushnik, spirea, other ornamental shrubs.

    We propagate by cuttings the necessary cultures - borachok (non-flowering shoots), veronica (tops of young shoots), hybrid hybrid (young shoots with 2-3 nodes), edelweiss (shoot tips), phlox (cuttings from the middle part of the shoot with two internodes).
    Dig up bulbous, as well as melkolukovichnye, if they have grown so thickly that they become worse bloom.

The soil prefers a fertile, neutral reaction. It is not difficult to grow it yourself from seeds.
    They are sown either in April in a closed ground and grown through seedlings, or in May - immediately into the garden to a permanent place.
    Care of zinnia requires a little: in particularly dry periods, water the plants, once a month, feed the solution of the complex mineral fertilizer, and for abundant and lush blossoms, regularly tear off the wilted flowers.

    Propagates only by seeds.

    Using. Zinnia can be used in completely different compositions, it's multi-colored groups from different varieties of this plant, and joint planting with other annual crops.
    Good zinnia in the mixborder - from its bushes are beautiful curbs. Also, the flowers can stand a week in a cut.

    What is a lawn type flower garden? How to create it? What area on the site under it should be allocated?

      A lawn-type flower bed, or Moorish lawn, is a plantation of a variety of beautifully flowering meadow-steppe or field plants. The most common of these are poppies, daisies, cornflowers, clover, etc.

      Such a lawn pleases the eye with a colorful coloring, a fragrance of plants blossoming almost all summer.
      Care of the lawn-flower garden is minimal. In autumn, the digested area is dug to the depth of the shovel bayonet, organic fertilizers (manure, peat) are introduced. In the spring, the plot is harrowed and, starting in April, the seeds of the selected plants are planted.

      During the spring-summer period, watering is necessary (depending on weather conditions and the particular agricultural technology of the crops you have chosen). After flowering and fruiting (August-October - depending on the region), the lawn is mowed to a height of 8-10 cm from the soil surface. The mowed mass is allowed to lie down for several days so that the ripened seeds spill out onto the ground. Then the dried-up plant mass is raked from the site. Fallen seeds next year usually give amicable shoots. The area of ​​a flower type lawn depends only on the size of your plot and the proportion that you want to allocate for it.
