    Whatever the weather in February, it is time to sow seeds for seedlings with a long initial growing season. For me, these are climbing kobeya, seaside cineraria, sparkling salvia, Peruvian heliotrope, Shabo carnation, zonal and ivy-shaped pelargonium, New Guinean balsam.

    I also sow lobelia erinus and always-flowering begonia in February, since I do not have the opportunity to illuminate them. I sow the seeds of these flower crops on the surface of the substrate, do not sprinkle them. I prepare the soil mixture from peat and sand. In warmth and light, the seeds germinate in 10-15 days.
    For sowing balsam, I prepare an acidic substrate (pH 5,5-6). Sown seeds of balsam lightly sprinkle with sand. At a temperature of 22 ... 2 ° C, low light, but high humidity, they germinate in a week. After that, I lower the temperature, and I illuminate the seedlings. As soon as the cotyledons unfold, I feed the seedlings with a mineral fertilizer with a low calcium content.
    I am starting to divide cannes tubers according to their eyes. I plant the finished delenki in a wide container with loose nutrient soil and then put it on a warm, light windowsill for growing.

    At the end of February, I bring pots of coleus and pelargonium into the house. I put it in a bright place and water it regularly. If the roots of plants protrude beyond the edge of the pots, I transplant them into a prepared fresh substrate.
    I cut the elongated shoots of the coleus, leaving five to seven eyes on the mother liquor. This stimulates young growth. From the cut branches I cut the cuttings and put them on rooting in water or woods. I do not forget to pinch the growing shoots.
    In pelargonium, I remove weak and elongated shoots. I use growing shoots for cuttings and rooting. I put some cut branches into water for rooting, others are cut into cuttings, treated with a growth stimulator and planted in a substrate consisting of river granular sand, peat and sphagnum moss (1: 1: 1), at an angle of 45 ° to a depth of 2-3 cm .

    Start pruning fuchsias, pelargoniums, ivy and other plants that are taken out into the garden for the summer. Cuttings can be obtained from pruned shoots and rooted by putting them in water.
    At the end of January, expose begonia tubers and perennial mother liquors for forcing to propagate them by cuttings.

    Already in January, you can start sowing many flower crops. At this time, perennials with a long development period are sown, those plants that need stratification, indoor flowers for growing in the garden - coleus, pelargonium, begonia, balsam. Also at this time, you can sow Shabo cloves and Wittrock's viola (pansies).
