NEW VARIETIES OF PRIMULES - PHOTO + TITLE + DESCRIPTION
Spring is associated with galanthus, crocuses, hellebore, and other early-flowering beauties. But after all, a good half of summer residents do not find them in dissolution.
For such florists, the season begins with primroses, which delight with a gentle scattering of “lights” of all shades a little later, in April and early May. And it was at this time that the primrose got all the attention. How do you want in such moments to plant more interesting varieties in the garden!
At the FlowersExpo-2019 exhibition in Moscow, Julia WOLFSHMIDT, an employee of a German nursery, introduced visitors to the original series of primrose ordinary - Hethor, Pettico Piano, Crescendo, Bellarina. At first, they seemed to me a kind of exotic. But, as it turned out later, some of the previously presented (varieties have already been tested in the middle lane.
NOWING CROPS PRIMULA
The one who “caught fire” with a chic flower may grow primrose from seeds. Western companies offer to sow in June-July. But the owners of domestic nurseries are advised to do this in February-March (the optimal time in the middle lane). Seeds are distributed on the surface of the soil and sprayed with water, do not sprinkle. The bowl is wrapped in a bag and sent for at least two weeks in the refrigerator (+ 3-5 degrees.) Then put on the windowsill (only not southern).
The temperature for the development of seedlings is kept at + 16-18 degrees. Why is it important? Only in this range will a good root system be able to withstand a pick. When two true leaves appear, the seedlings are planted in separate pots with drainage holes. Peeled primrose is watered with a thin stream of water. In the future, they are regularly fed complex fertilizer.
In June, the grown seedlings in the tanks are dug in a semi-shady corner of the garden (not in the lowland). Bushes are planted in a constant place in the second half of August, when cooler weather sets in, at a distance of 25-30 cm from each other.
In March, as soon as the snow melts, the sockets clear of last year's foliage. Granules of nitrogen fertilizer are scattered across the soil. Refuse urea, because it will begin to be absorbed only after a couple of months. Better take ammonium nitrate. If you want to prepare a solution from it, reduce the dose by 2 times (0, 5 tablespoons / 10 liters of water).
Are April and May arid? Need moderate watering. Now feed the primrose with liquid fertilizer for flowering specimens.
After flowering, in June the first half of July, use any complex preparation for top dressing. Do not forget about watering if there is no rain for a long time, as well as weeding.
In late August and early September, overgrown primrose is divided. Do not ignore this rule, as thickened bushes sparse bloom and often wither. The curtain is dug up and chopped with a shovel into several parts. Delenki planted in a new place without deepening, and watered. When the bushes are accepted, then fresh leaves will appear from the middle - a signal that it is time to cut off the old ones.
Due to prolonged autumn rains, part of the rhizome may be exposed. At the end of October-November, pour humus under the sockets. Cover large-flowered and terry varieties with dry fallen leaves (scribble a net so as not to scatter from the wind).
Collector Veronika BEED their plantings of daylilies “knock out” with bushes of unpretentious primroses with simple inflorescences, for example, varieties Crescendo blue shades etc. In the summer, when primroses go to rest, the foliage of taller perennials creates for them a slight shade from the scorching sun. The root system of spring beauties, although not deep, but powerful (perfectly holds the soil on the slopes).
I remember the story of breeder Tatyana KOLOKOLENKOVA. Tatyana Nikolaevna, giving a lecture, admired the ability to primrose naturally cross her hair and give copies of amazing colors.
And here’s the review of flower grower Igor Milekhin from Voskresensk: “Creamy baby of the series Belarina came to me by accident. For a couple of seasons, she grew a bush, and then turned into a terry "princess"! It blooms for a long time - from April to June. But it also requires attention: timely top dressing, removal of fading flowers, dividing overgrown bushes, mulching ...
