    Verticillus wilt of clematis

    The disease manifests itself in the second half of summer - in the midst of flowering. Leaves and inflorescences on separate stems suddenly droop sharply, despite abundant watering.
    These are the "tricks" of one of the most harmful soil pathogens - the fungus Verticillium, which, developing on the roots, blocks the access of nutrients to the plant. As a result, all leaves, along with the stem, turn brown and dry out.
    Steps to Salvation
    Cut out the affected stems to the base, spill the base of the bush with Maxim (4 ml / 2 l of water).
    After a week, bury 5-5 tablets of "Glyocladin" around the bush to a depth of no more than 6 cm and as close as possible to the roots. The main condition for the success of its application (as well as "Trichotsina", "Trichophlora") is constantly moist and mulched soil.
    With a high degree of damage, cut off all the stems, dig up the bush, separate the still healthy parts, and the rest into the fire.
    Rinse the roots from the remnants of the earth at the delenoks and soak for 30 minutes in the "Maxim" solution (according to the instructions). Place them on the quarantine bed.

    Clematis: dressing and care

    In early and mid-July, I am sure to feed clematis with mullein infusion (1:10), to which I add mineral fertilizers (100 g of superphosphate and 500 g of wood ash per 10 l of the composition; I insist an hour). And for the prevention of fungal diseases I spray once with Bordeaux liquid (100 g per 10 liters of water).

    Is it obligatory to lay drainage on the bottom of the pit when clematis is planted?

    • Summerman, gardener and gardener (anonymous)

      - I am categorically against drainage in the landing pit for clematis (as well as for tree-like and grassy peonies, apple trees, pears, etc.). If there is water on the site, you need to divert it! If there is no such opportunity, plant willows, they are water-chowder and also very beautiful, they tolerate any haircut, even on a stump. The older the trees, the less water will be in the ground.

      When laying drainage on clay soil in a planting pit for one plant, you get a well with water - it will flow here from all around. As a result, the plant dies. With a high occurrence of groundwater (closer than 2 m to the soil surface) on the site, with spring flooding of the garden with melt water, plant all plants on elevated ridges or on a loose earthen mound (its height depends on a particular plant, for clematis - 10-15 cm).

    They presented beautiful clematis in a pot, and summer is in the yard. How to plant him in order not to lose? Our soil is clayey.

      - A clematis seedling with closed roots can be planted now. A pit for planting lianas is made in the size of 50x50x50 cm - this is a minimum, better bigger. The excavated soil is mixed with humus or compost, peat and sand (2: 2: 1: 1).
      To this mixture add 100-150 g of a complete mineral fertilizer (Fertika, Buisky fertilizers), 2-3 tbsp. ash, 150-200 g of dolomite flour (slaked lime, chalk). If there is bone meal, add it (150 g). All mix well and fill the landing pit.

      Container clematis planted by transshipment without destroying the earthen lump. Be sure to deepen! The tillering node in young plants should be 5-10 cm below the soil level, and in adults - 10-15 cm. This planting protects the root system of clematis from overheating in summer and freezing in winter. After planting, the plant needs to be well watered, and the soil should be mulched. Sprinkle the lower part of the shoots with a mixture of pure sand with wood ash (or crushed coal) in a ratio of 1: 1, this will help to avoid fungal diseases.
      IMPORTANT! During any transplanting, the shoots are shortened to two to three internodes, and broken, diseased or damaged roots are cut to healthy tissue. Places of root cuts are treated with crushed charcoal. In order to stimulate the development of the root system in clematis and in the future to obtain a strong specimen, in the first year of planting in summer, all shoots of the plant are cut in half. And in the fall, regardless of variety, they leave for winter only one or two knots above the soil surface.

    \ / I have a few questions for summer residents.

    In On clematis some whitish mold appeared and nothing I can not bring down. Flowers from this scourge grow worse and worse, bloom poorly, and their flowers have become small. What to do?
    In In a glass greenhouse ants invisibly and invisibly divorced. All the funds that I specifically wrote out in detail from the Dacha binder did not help. Maybe there are some other “secret” methods of struggle? In addition, in the same greenhouse I began to notice that for some reason there were a lot of cobwebs in it. Sometimes, you even have to brush it off with your hands when caring for landings. I tried to wash it off with water from the glasses, but she still reappears quickly. Is this some kind of pest living in the greenhouse?

    At Three years ago, I bought a Pepi self-pollinated pear. The seedling was in a container and even began to bear fruit a little. I landed it by all the rules, but the next spring it did not bloom. And still does not bloom, most importantly, by autumn on the tree all the foliage is covered with some brown dots, and then it gets completely dark. And this year on leaflets I also found nasty small insects. How can I cure my pear? Who will tell?

    For many years, near my house in the garden plot grows clematis. Previously, the whole vine was strewn with beautiful flowers. But in recent years, they have become smaller and no longer look so attractive. Maybe the bush is waiting for rejuvenation? Tell us how it is carried out and when?

    • OOO "Sad"

      To preserve the appearance of clematis, as well as to improve its growth and the formation of new roots, the following method is used. On the trunk circle, make holes around the 5-7 circumference with a depth of about 50 and at a distance from the center of the 40-50 bush. They are left for several days to improve gas exchange in the soil, and then layer by layer with high-quality compost, alternating it with granular superphosphate, humus, peat, sawdust, leaves.

      Thanks to this procedure, the formation of new clematis roots is stimulated. Through holes directly to the roots pour a solution of mineral fertilizers. With this method, water evaporates slowly, well soaking an earthen lump.
      Usually rejuvenation is carried out in spring or autumn, and after a few years it is repeated. After this, the plants begin to grow and develop normally.
      The same method is also good for rejuvenating the root system of variegated roses and other perennials in the garden.
