    I want to grow barberry in the country. Can it be propagated by seeds?

      - In the first half of October, sow peeled barberry seeds (without stratification) into 1 cm deep grooves. Seedlings will appear in May. Carry out a pick in the first year when the second sheet appears. It is possible to grow seedlings without replanting them to another place for several years.

    In early spring, I planted an Orange Sunrise barberry in the house, it was cool outside. I poured "Radifarm", and the bush began to grow. Gradually accustomed him to the sun. The barberry got stronger, and I planted it in the open ground. But the leaves began to curl (photo 1). I did not find any pests or diseases. Over time, all the leaves dried out. I had to cut branches at a height of 10 cm, and the barberry began to produce new ones (photo 2).

      - The plant is accustomed to the level of light in the house. Apparently, they did not quite correctly accustom him to the sun on the street: the barberry received burns and threw off the foliage. Now he has grown a new one, adapted to active radiation (similarly, leaves change from seedlings when moving to open ground). Henceforth, it is worth more smoothly accustoming plants to outdoor conditions: to take out immediately for a short time and gradually increase it. The hardening process will take longer.

    Carmen's barberry planted last spring. This summer, the leaves began to turn pale and dry out. Just in case, I sprayed it twice from the spider mite. Did not help. What could be the cause of the problem?

      - All barberries have good resistance to pests and diseases. Judging by the photo, the reason for the yellowing of the leaves could be a lack of moisture in the soil. Mature shrubs with a highly developed root system are drought-resistant and rarely suffer from this. In the young, the roots still cannot provide a full flow of water. And in a drought they need watering.

      The reason may also be in the waterlogging of the soil, which the barberry also does not tolerate well. For example, if a bush grows in a lowland or depression, with frequent watering and 1 precipitation, water will accumulate. I recommend digging the plant and examining the state of the soil coma and roots in order to understand: it is worth replanting it to a higher place or changing the watering regime.
