    What bulbous plants should be planted on the site so that they bloom all summer?

    • OOO "Sad"

      — There are practically no bulbous plants that bloom throughout the entire summer season, with the exception of acidanthera. But it must first be grown in April so that the buds begin to bloom in June. The bulbs of this plant are planted in plastic sieves in mid-April and kept in a greenhouse until the end of May, and then transplanted into a flower garden between other perennials. Acidanthera does not require any special fertilizing or treatment against diseases and pests.
      Among the bulbous and corm crops, cannas, dahlias, lilies, gladioli, montbretia (crocosmia), ixia, tigridia and their varieties bloom at a certain period of summer. Among the natural species of gladioli in the summer, G. dalenii, G. italian, G. carneus, G. cardinalis, G. winged, G. papilio delight with the beauty of G. dalenii.

    Hyacinths and early daffodils have already bloomed, and tulips are on the way. I feed all plants with complex mineral fertilizer (according to the instructions). In the process, I loosen the soil around. If the flower garden is dry, then I first water the plantings, and only then apply fertilizer.

    I immediately dig up and destroy diseased and off-grade bulbs. I sprinkle the places where the diseased specimens grew with ash.
    I dig up crocuses, snowdrops, daffodils, and chionodoxes that have sprouted in areas of old plantings and replant them. But I don’t touch tulips and hyacinths - it’s better to deal with them in August-September.
