    Seedlings and sowing seeds

    At the beginning of the month, I plant seedlings of annual flowers: left-handed, caliberhoa, petunia, bacopa, etc. Before planting, I find out the weather forecast - do not promise frosts.
    If cats hide under a blanket or jump onto a closet where it is warmer, then in 2-3 days there will definitely be a cooling.

    In the first half of June, I sow the seeds of biennials: digitalis, daisies, viola, mallow, Turkish cloves and perennials: terry bell, aquilegia, yarrow, gypsophila, gailardia, cloves, lupine, stonecrop, rudbeckia, alissum rocky, alissum.

    Tell me, what annual flowers to choose, so that they delight all summer with their blooms?
    I plant many asters and marigolds.
    But for sure there are many other plants that will give the site a special charm and charm.

      There are really many such colors. You can, for example, plant an ageratum that reaches 20 in height in cm and has fluffy buds. And so that this plant will delight you all summer, do not be lazy to cut faded flowers.
      Pay attention to the lobelia, which has many shades, and the most loved and popular among our growers are blue flowers with a yellow middle.

      Petunia, which is famous for its bizarre shape and colors, will bring pleasure.
      A special charm to flowerbeds can give a landing zinnia. This flower is very unpretentious in the care. But remember: the brightness of the flowers will directly depend on the soil on which they grow: fertile or poor.
      Compositions from annuals can hardly be imagined without a mallow, which delights with large flowers of different shades - from white to red.
      Even a castor bean alone planted will be able to reveal all its beauty, because during flowering this plant is very reminiscent of chestnut.
      In general, any grower can create a paradise in his garden where you can enjoy the charm of simple flowers and plants. True, this will have to work hard. But how wonderful the result will be!

    Annual flowers are good because they add variety to the picture of our garden. After all, every year one of them can add a new “mosaic”. This, I think, will help the advice of a famous Canadian gardener and grower Larry Hodgson. Here are just three of them.
    Avoid straight lines! Soft curves and rounded outlines look much nicer. Straight lines are difficult not only to create with the help of plants, but also to maintain. In addition, one dried bush can ruin the whole look of a strictly geometric flower garden.

    Repeat color spots. Mixing plants with flowers of various colors
    ski, do not forget that if you repeat the color spot at least twice, then visually “collect” a flower garden. For one color spot, at least 12 plants are required. It is even better if, while observing the flowering process, you record successful combinations of species and varieties so that you can repeat them next season.
    Use plant supports as seldom as possible. Let it be better shoots stick in different directions, just do not build a fence from the supports! And if possible, choose cultures that do not require garters.

    Usually, flat carpet flower beds are made up of annual plants or they are planted in perennial compositions. But you can also create a multi-level mixborder from pilots. In the background, I recommend planting tall summers: glue, castor oil, railing, lower plants in the middle tier - Ajax delphinium, snakehead, lavender, zinnia, snapdragon, lemon monard, and in the foreground, lobularia, lobelia, petunia, verbena , Phloom Drummond and other minor.


    In the flower garden in September, I remove the remains of annuals. To increase soil fertility and disinfection, I spill the site with Gumi and Fitosporin (according to the instructions). You can just sprinkle with ashes.
    All the garbage is burned. But I cut up the marigolds and fill them in beds and flower beds - to scare off pests that winter in the soil.

    We are used to the fact that if you decorate a container that will stand on the street and winter there will remain there, only annuals: planted them in late spring, plants bloomed - and then, in the fall, threw them out.

    But to plant perennial flowers in such containers, we are afraid: they will not survive the winter, most likely our plants. And here not!
    There are a number of cultures that are quite comfortable in such cramped conditions and tolerate winter tolerably. Here is the list of perennials that will perfectly grow in the container: the hoods, the pins, the cats, the geranium large-crowned, the sand-lime, the alpine mantle, the wormwood, the bugle.

    The list, of course, is not very impressive, but only from these plants can you make nice, and most importantly, perennial compositions. And you want variety - add shrubs (barberries, derens, Cossack juniper).

    As a drainage material for large flower pots or boxes, it is not necessary to use crushed stone or chipped brick.
    For these purposes, fine pieces of ordinary polystyrene or even wine cork are fine. After all, thus, and the water will not stagnate, and the weight of the pot, filled with earth, is significantly reduced.

    There are a number of cold-resistant annual flowers that not only can, but even need to be sown immediately into the open ground. As soon as the soil warms up, you can start planting these plants.

    Especially good are calendula, annual poppies and cornflowers. Also in April, they sow eshsoltsiyu, sweet peas, bindweed.

    Do not forget that with a seedless method of sowing, you need a third more seeds. It is better to use the so-called nesting method, when several seeds are placed in each well.
    As the young plants grow from each hole, the weakest specimens are gradually removed, at the end one plant should remain.
