WE PLANT POLYFLENS THAT HAVE BEEN GROWING IN ONE PLACE FOR MORE THAN 3 YEARS
At the beginning of October, it’s time to replant and propagate perennials that have been growing in one place for more than three years. This is especially necessary replanting sorrel, rhubarb, asparagus, lovage, perennial onions, Jerusalem artichoke, tarragon, stachis and horseradish.
Cut off all the large leaves of the sorrel and dig up the bushes. Cut roots over 20 cm in length by a quarter with a shovel. Plant one bush at a time in a new place 20 cm from each other. Leave 30 cm between rows. Water well.
Divide the rhizomes of chives and other perennial varieties of onions into 2-3 parts. Shorten the roots a little. Plant 15cm apart and 35cm between rows.
Divide large asparagus bushes into 3-4 parts. Sprinkle the sections with sifted ash or crushed activated carbon. Dig planting holes 1 - 1 spade deep. Add 5 tbsp to each. azofoski, 1 tbsp. ash and 1-2 shovels of humus. Mix everything thoroughly with the soil. Leave 3-40 cm between plants, at least 50 m between rows.
When dividing lovage rhizomes, keep in mind that at least three living buds should remain on each division. Separate the bushes with a clean knife, dust the wounds with ash. Under each new bush, add at least a bucket of humus, mix the fertilizer in half with the soil. Leave at least 50 cm between plants and 120 cm between rows.
For horseradish, so that it does not spread throughout the area, prepare a special bed. Dig sheets of slate and tin around the perimeter to a depth of 30 cm. Cut the roots into pieces 3-4 cm long and plant them according to a 25x70 cm pattern.
Tarragon can be planted by cuttings or divisions. It is better to plant cuttings in the spring, but autumn is more suitable for cuttings. Try to divide the rhizomes so that each part contains at least 6 living shoots. Plant the cuttings 40 cm apart and 60 cm between rows. Immediately after transplanting, shorten the stems to 20 cm.
Divide the stachy bushes in the same way as tarragon. Plant 25cm apart and 50cm between rows.
Plant Jerusalem artichoke rhizomes 70 cm apart and at a distance of 80 cm between rows. Limit the bed for Jerusalem artichoke in the same way as for horseradish, otherwise this plant will soon take over a decent part of your garden.
