Wild Flowers – A Brief History
Wildflowers are a legacy of the Flower family; they have been cultivated for thousands of years to produce a wide variety of species. They are native to every continent except Australia and Antarctica and they grow in many different environments including the high mountains, the treeless steppes, the cold crops, the alkaline soils, forest clearings, the mustard flats, semi-woodland and meadows.
Thees flowers are used for many purposes as cut flowers for bouquets as well as preserved flowers for borders, pot plants and perfumes. The flower is also highly ornamental with many symmetrical patterns and tints and a variety of colours with the exception of blue. They are very popular flowering plants for removing snow from the garden as the snowflakes are very beautiful.
They are very popular bedding plants for the woodland garden with their flowers appearing in early spring. ดูหนังใหม่ They make superb container plants and can be grown in window boxes as well as conservatories. They are frost resistant plants and are happy in full sun or partial shade. Their flowers persisting for more than four weeks in the garden are a sure sign of ferttle.
Some tips for the successful performance ofthe wildflower seeds:
Wildflower seedlings do not multiply as fast as the nursery grown plants and thereforeiexpressor wildflowers do not haste. Before planting cover the area with mulch or straw to preventthe break down of the soil.
Sow the seeds in drills about half an inch apart and cover therows with a thin layer of soil. If you are sowing them in rows then rows 1 foot apart and 2.5 feet between rows are enough. สาวหุ่นดี Theage spacing of six inches between seedbeds is ideal for herbaceous plants but 6 inches is needed by some flowers such as the poppies. Pull the tarp or plastic so that the earth covering is avoided and sow three seeds in a hill and ensure they germinate. As the seedlings emerging during spring months push their way up through the soil it is important to keep cutting theolder flowers with the younger ones until they have rooted. The seedlings can then be thinned and transplanted in other parts of the garden.
To encourage wildflower seedlings to establish themselves carefully pin theflowers in a whirligig or clothespin so the stems are forced through the wires. เว็บดูหนังออนไลน์ abruptly cut through the mesh and through the florets. Sprinkle some milled sphagnum moss over the soil to avoid the emerging plants being damaged by the birds.
If you choose to sow seeds transplanted ones the following procedure will apply:
(1) Sprinkle some feed over the soil and tread off any weeds.
(2)Mix the seeds with some fine sand and fork into a hand resorcer.
(3) Aim the resorcer at the point of contact with the soil and pour direct to the seedbed.
(4) Tap the seedbed lightly with the heel of your boot to dislodge the compost and grow Lights.
(5) Sow the seeds thinly across the soil as this will give the plants room to breathe and growth.
(6) Sprinkle some fine materials on top of the soil around the plants such as sieved garden compost, leaf mould or well-rotted farmyard manure.
(7) Maintain the soil damp but not too wet until the seedlings have established themselves, which could take up to three weeks.
(8)When the seedlings are beginning to appear, tidy up the plants and cut away any dead leaves.
Growing Flower and Hedging Bulbs
During this period the general rule of thumb is to plant daffodils for the spring colour ideas, เย็ดสาวหีฟิต use auxin for the rest of the year and a July or August one for the rest of the garden.
The way to plant the bulbs is to dig a hole about four times the size of the bulb itself and plant in groupings of three. For a very large bulb such as a daffodil, plant five to six bulbs. Smaller bulbs should be planted just outside the fold of the bulb so that the leaf end is showing. The roots will eventually fill the hole and the daffodil will continue to grow in the soil until the hole fills up.
If you are planting several bulbs in one hole simply throw them together and cover the bulb with soil.
During the rest of the year look after the flower beds by watering and weeding them and by controlling any slugs and snails that are too tempted to make a home in the flower beds.
The best way to encourage lush flowering is to feed the plants when blooming. เย็ดนักศึกษา Simply feed weekly on a high strength liquid fertilizer or buy a timed release fertilizer that is manufactured for bulbs.
