    Three-leaved gillings (Gillenia trifoliata) in nature grows in light forests, on the fringes. Therefore, in the garden in the rarefied shadow of the tree it will be quite comfortable. When growing, it is important to consider that the roots of the plant are mostly woody, long, stiff, friable, very little - after the grafting, it does not immediately "come to life", the bush loses its volume and recovers very slowly. Young plants are usually transplanted with a clod of earth.
    At the same time it tolerates the most negligent attitude towards itself - neither to feed specially, nor to water regularly (enough atmospheric precipitation), nor to process from any pests and diseases it will not be needed. The main task is to put on the right place and not to bother, since each transplant is a loss of a year or two in development.
    Within reasonable limits competes with the root systems of the neighboring plants. It grows a beautiful bush with a height of 100-110 cm (during flowering - 130-150 cm). Can be planted in a group of conifers, in a flower garden, and in any - and in bouquet, and in meadow. In the collection plantings (for example, lilies, phlox), it will dilute monotony. By the way, there is a form of gillenia with pink flowers and reddish (at the beginning of growth) leaves, called Pink Profusion. Growth of its representatives are somewhat less typical, otherwise - beautiful, especially the autumn color of the leaves. Agree, not every year we are pleased with maples, purple, deciduous rhododendrons - they are brighter, then paler, then green go under the snow, and gillings - always colorful!

    I have one flower, which I practically do not take care of, but to which for many years I have never ceased to experience the most tender feelings. This is gaylard. She became the first perennial I grew up. I remember how I fell in love with the photo on the package and sowed seeds for several seasons, but there were no sprouts. As it turned out, I too deeply buried the seeds. No longer hoping for a positive result, I somehow poured out the remnants of seeds gaylardarii on the edge of the garden, and they took and amicably rose!

    This flower can not be watered and not fed, but it will continue to grow and release all new inflorescences from June to frost. With good care gaylardia turns
    in a lush bush with numerous large inflorescences, which can not leave anyone indifferent. It multiplies easily by self-seeding, and in a few years a whole clearing grows on the spot of a thin flower.
    To all beginning flower growers I advise to plant this perennial. Just do not repeat my mistakes. Sprinkle the seeds of gaylardia in the spring on the surface of moist soil, lightly press them and keep the soil moist for another 7-10 days. After a while the seedlings will begin to grow actively and in the next season they will be pleased with the first flowering. If you grow gaylardaria through seedlings, it will bloom in the same season.

    I like tavolga, this is an elm-like one: it is modest, tall, unpretentious, it smells nice. And in general in our crisis time I strive to learn about everything that grows on the site, and all to the maximum use. I make an ointment from the meadow.

    Dried leaves and flowers of this wonderful plant grind in a coffee grinder into a powder (I keep a special coffee grinder for herbs) and mix with 2 parts of Vaseline and 1 part of lanolin. I apply for different "summer" bites and light burns. However, it is better to allergy sufferers from the use of gravy, but they can also grow and smell it in the garden.
