LILEYNIK: DIVISION AND TRANSFER
Daylilies can grow in one place up to 10-15 years. But if an older bush loses its beauty '(there are fewer flowers, and they are small), then the burrow is to divide and transplant it.
Usually this is done in May or August (before and after flowering, taking into account that the delenki have time to take root before winter). I had such an operation in mid-June. Just that year, the beginning of summer was rainy. and the area where my pets grew was flooded - the roots of the plant could suffer from rot.
LIFTED COTTAGE FOR LILYNIKA
I decided to prepare a bed for a new generation of daylilies about 30 cm high above the level of the site so that the weather would not harm the plants anymore. I chose a sunny corner. I added sand and humus (2: 1: 0,5) to the soil and poured it in the form of an oblong knoll about 3 m long. Then I dug holes 20 to 25 cm deep at a distance of 50 cm from each other. At the bottom of each poured two handfuls of a mixture of sand, peat and ash (1: 1: 1).
FEATURES OF DIVISION OF LILYNIKA
An old bush was dug around the perimeter and removed to the surface. With a strong stream of water, it washed away the earth from the rhizome and divided the plant into separate fans (it turned out 5-7 de-lenok). Removed rotten and dead roots, treated the sections with fungicide (can be a solution of potassium permanganate). She cut the leaves at a height of 15-20 cm from the ground level in the form of an inverted letter “V” and planted them in prepared and moistened holes.
When the bushes started growing, I fed them with a solution of complex fertilizer with microelements in the form of chelates (according to the instructions). In hot weather I watered. Periodically, ash was poured to the “legs” - potash fertilizer strengthens the daylilies immunity and protects them from diseases.
The next year, the transplanted “youth” pleased our family with the first colors of yellow-orange and red-brown shades.
