    So that the tulip bulbs do not go deep into the ground and do not suffer from rodents, I plant them by placing them in plastic mesh containers. In late September - early October, in a sunny place, I dig a hole the size of a container. I fall asleep in it garden soil, 2 kg of humus, 1 kg of sand and 1 tbsp. l nitrofoski. Stir and leave the soil to settle. In each container I place 10-15 bulbs soaked in a pink solution of potassium permanganate. I use varieties of different flowering periods so that the flower bed remains beautiful for as long as possible. I plant large bulbs to a depth of 11-14 cm, small ones - 7-9 cm. The distance between the bulbs should be 2 times their diameter. I install the container in the pit, sprinkle along the edges of the earth. On top I mulch peat with a layer of 2 cm. You can cover it with spruce branches, sawdust. Through the net, the roots of tulips easily penetrate the soil and receive nutrition, while the bulbs in the container are protected from mice.

    Lukovkam is about to land
    The beginning of autumn is the time of planting spring bulbs in the ground. It’s difficult to name the exact dates; you have to navigate the weather. Ideally, the bulbs should be on the bed a month before the frost, so that they have time to give roots and go to winter rest. I usually land in late September - early October. But if you can’t do this in due time, I prefer to be late than to plant early. The longer the bulbs sit in the warm earth in the fall, the greater the risk that they will be affected by diseases or pests.
    An important point is the depth of planting bulbs. Here I follow the rule: the depth is
    3 diameters of the bulb. Accordingly, the deepest holes should be made under the bulbs of hazel grouse and large lilies. If the bulb is the size of a fist, then the planting depth can reach 20 cm. Hyacinths, varietal daffodils, tulips, alliums (decorative bows) can be deepened by 12-15 cm. 3 cm

    Tulips and small onions can even be planted “on floors”: to a depth - tulip bulbs, pour a 5 cm layer of soil on top, put small primroses in it and sprinkle with earth on top again. In spring, tulips will unfold with a bright carpet of small flowers.

    Sometimes you feel like putting a bunch of spring flowers on the table! It is even better if these are flowers from your garden. Do not deny yourself this pleasure. True, they need to be cut off at the right time, or rather, when the bud is completely colored, but the flower has not yet opened. But not all bulbs need to leave leaves. So, for example, daffodils can be cut with leaves - this will not affect the maturation and development of the bulb.

    I noticed: if there is a cold spring, the blooming of the bulbs can be very delayed. It happens that it’s already the beginning of May in the yard, and the long-awaited tulips and daffodils will not open in any way. What to do, how to speed up this process? I found a way out in one old book on botany - plants need to be fed with superphosphate or potassium sulfate and poured with warm water. The result is not long in coming.

    For many years she was engaged in forcing to spring holidays bulbous flowers: tulips, daffodils, muscari. In general, the result pleased, but such magnificent beautiful bouquets, as on postcards, I never worked. And then I learned a simple secret.

    Bulbous plants, if they do not replant annually, gradually go into the depths of the earth. However, this does not prevent their sprouts in the spring to successfully break through to the surface. Some species are prone to the formation of many daughter bulbs, thickening.

    You will dig out such a bush, and there the bulbs sit in several tiers, literally on top of each other. Of course, this leads to the weakening of plants and outbreaks of diseases, so you can not run a flower garden. But this natural feature bulbous to live in cramped, and not offended can be used for forcing.
    You will need a pot that is taller than the bulb in 4-5 times. On the bottom, you must put a thick layer of drainage. Then pour 1 cm soil soil, and on it almost closely set the bulbs. 1 layer is sprinkled with soil, on it place 2-th layer of bulbs, then again the soil and 3-th layer. Bulbs should preferably be staggered, so that the sprouts of the lower ones are in the lumens between the bottoms of the upper ones.

    When bulbs go to growth, shoots will be literally a continuous brush. As a result, a luxuriant and elegant bouquet will blossom in a small diameter pot.
