Kobeya (photo) - growing seedlings from seeds as a perennial - planting and care
KOBEYA TRAVELER - LANDING AND CARE
Last autumn, I saw in the neighboring summer cottages how the kobe blooms. Charming bells of light pink and purple on vines with chic green foliage simply fascinated.
I want to know if this plant is difficult to grow and will it have to be sown every year?

TURNING KOBEI INTO A PERENNIUM
Our kobe grows as an annual, but it is still possible to extend its life by turning it into a perennial. And it's not as difficult as it seems.
If, before the first autumn frosts, you dig up the roots of a kobe with a clod of earth and store the plant in a basement or cellar, then it will survive the winter cold without any problems. But at the same time, the temperature should be within 9-11 degrees of heat. At the same time, no maintenance is required, only periodically it is necessary to check whether the earth has dried up, and, if necessary, moderately moisten it.
Some flower growers immediately put the kobe in spacious pots and take them first to the dacha, and then to the city. On the garden plot, containers with lush vines are placed along the house or fence and admire the amazing beauty, and in the fall they are stored under the above conditions.
With the advent of spring, the flower is transferred to a warm and bright place, gradually increasing the amount of watering. In open ground, the plant is planted in late May - early June, when the threat of return frosts disappears.
HOW TO GROW KOBEI SEEDLINGS
In our markets, buying seedlings of kobei in the spring is not a problem. But it doesn't come cheap. Meanwhile, viable seedlings can be grown at home. In early February, seeds are sown in separate cups, and when the kobe grows up, it is transplanted into open ground after the heat is established and the threat of return frosts has passed. In different regions, this moment comes at different times. But one thing is important here - not to damage the roots of the plant during transplantation. Otherwise, it will painfully transfer the transplant to the ground.
Before planting, kobei seeds must be germinated until they peck.

They are quite large, so it is convenient to work with them. You need to fold a piece of cloth or a napkin in several layers, moisten it, and then put it in a transparent plastic container and spread the seeds on the cloth so that they do not touch each other. They must be kept in the light at a temperature of 20 degrees. Check carefully for mold.
If this happens, the seeds should be washed in a pink solution of potassium permanganate, and then the fabric should be changed and laid out on it again. Some growers germinate kobe seeds in moss.
When they hatch, they should immediately be planted in pre-prepared pots with a diameter of 7-9 cm. The seeds are laid out on the soil surface one at a time with the flat side down (horizontally), and then buried by 1 cm. them and do not break. Germination of seeds requires warm and not very dry air. Constantly it is necessary to ensure that the soil in the pots does not dry out.
Before planting, the seeds must be soaked in Epin Extra. It is worth noting that Kobeya loves sunny, calm places, loose nutritious soil, constant feeding and good watering. It can also grow in partial shade.
Having saved the kobe in the winter, in the spring you can propagate it with cuttings. Such a plant usually blooms earlier, and the blue liana is later white. By the way, white flowers look good next to blue browallia, phacelia, begonias and pelargoniums, purple flowers - with yellow marigolds, zinnia, nasturtium.
