Pruning bushes in the fall: roses, clematis, hydrangeas, spirea, jasmine, hibiscus and peonies


Garden plants

One of the most important shrub care items is plant pruning, which has a positive effect on health, growth, flowering quality and longevity. Gradually expanding, the shrubs acquire a sloppy appearance, become too thick, old branches suppress the growth of young shoots, which significantly reduces the life of the plant. Both fruit and ornamental shrubs need pruning. However, you need to know when and how to prune certain shrubs, because incorrect or untimely pruning can lead to disease and even death of plants. About what shrubs are cut in the fall, how and when exactly it is necessary to do this, and there will be a conversation.

Pruning ornamental bushes

Autumn is the best time to prune shrubs, because at the end of the growing season you are not pressed for time, as is usually the case at the beginning, when the time interval between the onset of spring and the beginning of sap flow in plants is too short, during which it is too late to prune. The only precaution that must be observed when pruning shrubs in the fall is not to carry out the procedure at temperatures below -10 ºC, so as not to injure wood that is too fragile from frost.

Here is a rough list of the tools you may need to do the trimming:

  • sharpened pruner with two blades. Ideally, the blades of this tool should be of such length that, when fully diluted, a branch with a thickness of one and a half to two centimeters is placed between them. It is not bad if the tool is equipped with such improvements as a serrated amplifier, a rotating handle and ratchets with which you can cut old thick branches in three steps;
  • lopper - a type of pruner with long arms, which is used to trim large branches in hard-to-reach areas of the dense crown. The lopper is also much more convenient for pruning thorny shrubs and cutting below soil level. The more the blades taper towards the ends, the more versatile the tool is;
  • saws and hacksaws for removing large branches;
  • putty to protect the sections from infection and drying out. You can use garden var or modern factory-made preparations containing physiologically active and disinfecting substances that contribute to the rapid healing of wounds.

There are two types of pruning of flower shrubs: pruning and thinning. Shortening the shoots helps create the shape of the bush, regulates flowering and limits over-growth, while thinning is the sanitary or rejuvenating pruning necessary to prolong the life of the bush. In most cases, autumn pruning of shrubs serves sanitary purposes, and if the plant has reached old age, pruning of branches is also carried out in order to rejuvenate it. True, there are shrubs that are better formed in the fall, and not in the spring.

Pruning roses

When to trim

Thinning autumn pruning of rose bushes is carried out in order to ensure access of light and air to the middle of the bush, so that all buds and stems are supplied with them in sufficient quantity. In addition, pruning branches that have given flowers for more than one year stimulates the laying of new buds and the formation of new, stronger branches. Pruning is done in October, towards the end of the month, and if the autumn is long and warm, then pruning in November is also quite acceptable.

Autumn pruning

Pruning roses after flowering is not particularly difficult. Not only adult roses are cut, but also those planted this year. All diseased, dry and weak shoots, buds and flowers are removed from the bushes, leaving no more than five strong, developed young branches growing approximately equidistant from each other on the rose bush - the bush should look, if not symmetrical, then harmonious.

Do not leave young shoots on the bushes that will not have time to ripen before the cold weather, because under cover they can rot, infecting the entire bush with a fungal disease. The remaining shoots are shortened by 20-30 cm.

Hybrid tea, polyanthus and floribunda roses are cut short, leaving only four well-developed buds on each stem. Shoots of remontant roses and grandiflora roses are cut in half, leaving no more than five developed buds on them. Shoots on Old English and Shrub roses are cut to three-quarters or two-thirds of their length. In climbing roses with small flowers, the ends of the shoots are only slightly cut off, and in those with large flowers, the shoots are shortened by a third. Plant residues after pruning are best burned.

Pruning clematis

When is the best time to trim

Sanitary pruning - the release of clematis from broken and dried shoots - is carried out throughout the growing season. But pruning in November, and it is at this time that professionals recommend pruning clematis, is an important and complex agronomic measure: the fact is that there are three groups of pruning clematis, and each of them has its own pruning method.

Pruning in the fall

We offer you a classification of clematis in terms of the method of autumn plant pruning:

  • the first pruning group (No. 1 or A): it includes clematis of the Florida groups (for example, flowering clematis) and Patens (for example, spreading clematis), which bloom only on the shoots of the second year, therefore, all non-lignified and weak shoots are removed for the winter, the rest shorten by a third so that the length of the shoot does not exceed one and a half meters;
  • the second pruning group (No. 2 or B) includes woolly clematis, several varieties of the Patens and Florida groups, and varieties of the Lanuginoza group. These clematis bloom in the spring on overwintered shoots, and by the end of summer, young shoots also enter the flowering process. In these clematis, the bush is cut to a height of 50-100 cm from the surface of the site, but if the bush needs rejuvenation, then you can cut it down to the first true leaf;
  • the third pruning group (No. 3 or C) includes all clematis of the Viticella and Zhakman groups, blooming only on the shoots of the current year. These clematis are cut off entirely, leaving only shoots with 2-3 nodes.

Pruning hydrangea

When to trim

The types of garden hydrangea in terms of timing and pruning method are divided into two groups. The first group includes all varieties of large-leaved hydrangea, or garden, and serrata hydrangea, as well as oak-leaved, liana-shaped, petiolate hydrangea, Sargenta and Macrophylla prickly hydrangea. They are united by the fact that the formation of new flower buds occurs at the ends of the shoots of the last year, that is, if you cut off the ends of the shoots in the fall, then along with them remove the flower buds that were supposed to give flowers next year.

Therefore, pruning in the fall should be limited to only removing wilted inflorescences and dry or broken shoots, although professionals recommend doing all this in the spring.

Tips for pruning in the fall

The second group includes those types and varieties of hydrangeas that form flower buds not only on the shoots of the past, but also on the shoots of the current year, therefore, the pruning of paniculate hydrangea, as well as pruning of the tree hydrangea, is carried out in the fall without the risk of harming the plant, so moreover, hydrangeas of the second group are more winter hardy than, for example, large-leaved hydrangea. Treelike hydrangea bushes are thinned out in the fall, eliminating thickening and removing diseased, broken and weakened shoots, as well as cutting out weakly flowering branches older than three to four years to the base. In the spring, you will have to shorten the growth of last year, leaving only 2-4 pairs of buds, which will give flowering shoots this year.

The panicle hydrangea is just as capable of plentiful shoots as the tree hydrangea, and most of the shoots of the current year end with an inflorescence. Over the years, the number of shoots on the bushes increases so much that they become weak, and the hydrangea inflorescences become smaller. That is why panicle hydrangea needs annual rather strong pruning: weak shoots are removed, leaving only strong zero shoots; cut out sick, weak and growing inside the bush branches. During spring pruning, a crown is formed, shortening the growth of the last year, leaving no more than three pairs of buds on them.

Pruning peonies

When to trim

Pruning of peonies is carried out at the end of October or at the beginning of November, after the first frost, because if you postpone pruning until spring, it will be difficult to cut off plant residues that have become limp over the winter.

Pruning in the fall

The stems of peonies are cut at ground level so that hemp does not remain in place of the bushes. If the weather is dry, water the root area liberally before pruning. It is better to burn plant residues so that they do not become a source of disease.

Spirea pruning

When is the best time to trim

The timing of the autumn pruning of spirea depends on the timing of its flowering:

  • for varieties of spirea that bloom in late spring or early summer, pruning in September is optimal if you did not begin to practice this summer, immediately after flowering. Early flowering species include Vagutta spirea, sharp-toothed, medium, nippon, oak-leaved;
  • late-flowering spirea, which includes Japanese spirea, Bumald, Douglas, Billiard, willow, birch-leaved, pruned in the spring.

Fall pruning tips

After the early flowering spirea has faded, cut off the faded tops of the shoots to maintain the natural shape of the crown until the end of summer. With the onset of autumn, so that the bush does not lose its decorative effect in the future, a fourth or fifth of all shoots are removed from it at the root - this measure stimulates the growth of shoots next year. If possible, remove all faded shoots, leaving young shoots. Spirea bushes are thinned every two to three years, cutting out crooked, too thin and weak branches.

Once a decade, if there is no need to do this earlier, the spirea is cut thoroughly, leaving only 5-7 young strong branches on the bush.

Jasmine pruning

When to trim

Garden jasmine, or chubushnik, is a dense shrub for which annual pruning is required. In the spring, before the buds swell, it is necessary to remove the frozen shoots or tops, and also to form the crown of the bush, but it is better to do sanitary and thinning pruning in the fall, a couple of weeks before the onset of frost.

Pruning in the fall

Regular thinning of the garden jasmine bush rejuvenates the crown, as it promotes the active regrowth of young, well-leafy and abundantly flowering shoots. Even in summer, immediately after flowering, unproductive old branches older than five years are cut out on the bush, and before winter, dried, diseased, twisted branches and shoots are removed. And keep in mind: if you neglect the annual thinning of jasmine, you can be left without its flowers in a year or two.

Pruning hibiscus

When to prune hibiscus

The hibiscus shrub needs to be pruned annually, and since hibiscus garden flower buds are formed on the shoots of the current year, by pruning, you stimulate the formation of a large number of new flowering shoots. Hibiscus pruning is carried out either on the eve of winter, or at the end of it.

Autumn pruning

If you are pruning in the fall, thin out the hibiscus bush by removing any damaged, diseased, weak, and growing shoots. In the spring, it will remain for you, if the need arises, to carry out formative pruning, shortening the overwintered shoots.

Pruning other shrubs

We decided to introduce you to the classification of shrubs by pruning time, so that you can plan garden work in advance at one time or another of the year. After all, it happens that there is so much work in the garden that there is not enough hands or time, and at other times there is little work, and you could unload your routine, knowing that some type of garden work can be transferred, for example, from spring to fall or vice versa. So, according to the specifics of the growth and development of vegetative and generative shoots, the time of formation and opening of flower buds and their location on the shoots, ornamental shrubs are divided into three types:

Type one: with wintering flower buds formed on the shoots of the last year. By spring, all parts of the flower have already been formed on such shrubs in their embryonic state. This type of plant, in turn, is also divided into three groups according to the arrangement of flowers on the shoot:

- group A - flowers are located on the side of the shoot. Such plants include quince, scarlet, spiraea, euonymus, forsythia, weigela, mock orange. Pruning of these plants involves thinning, cutting of senescent skeletal branches and shoots to the second, third or fourth level of branching. Along the way, you can carry out shaping pruning, shortening too long shoots of the current year. The optimal time for the procedure is immediately after flowering, as earlier as well as later pruning can weaken flowering and cause excessive branching. An exception is Japanese quince, which is best cut in the spring, before bud break. The euonymus is cut off not after flowering, but after fruiting due to the high decorativeness of its fruits;

- group B - shrubs with flowers at the tops of the shoots. Such plants include bush rowan trees, the pruning of which is recommended in the fall, thinning the crown, as well as removing dry, damaged and weak shoots and cutting out large lateral branches;

- group B - shrubs, the flowers of which are located both at the top and on the side of the shoots. This group of shrubs includes rose hips, sumac, cotoneaster, viburnum, lilac, scumpia and turf. Thinning of these shrubs is recommended either in early spring before the start of sap flow, or in the fall, at the end of the growing season. Old branches are pruned at the level of the second, third or fourth order of branching, and it is better to do this immediately after flowering. Pruning of faded shoots of viburnum, rose hips and lilacs is carried out over the buds turned to the outside of the bush.

Type two, forming peduncles in the leaf axils of the young growth. This type includes Dereza, Barberry and Snowberry, which are pruned in late autumn or even early winter, although spring pruning is also acceptable. Last year's shoots are shortened during pruning, leaving knots with three to five buds, weak branches are cut to the base, old ones - at a height of no more than 10 cm from the ground surface. In order to stimulate the formation of new shoots of replacement, large skeletal branches are shortened by half.

Third type: these shrubs (irga, privet, golden currant, pyrocanthus) form peduncles from the lateral and apical buds of last year's shoots, as well as in the axils of the leaves of the growth of the current year. Thinning pruning is carried out immediately after flowering, cutting out too old, weak and drying out branches at the level of the second or third order of branching. Keep in mind that the harder you prune, the more likely the flowering rate will decrease in the coming year.

If pruning is carried out irregularly, the bushes begin to overgrow, more sick, weak, twisted shoots appear in the depths of the crown, pests settle, old branches die off, and as a result, the bushes die, and after all, they could please you with flowering for more than one year, if you pruned annually.

Take your time to cross old bushes, do anti-aging pruning - start by removing dead and old stems, then cut out a third of the old skeletal branches. The next year, after sanitary pruning, cut out some more of the old skeletal branches, and after another year, complete the removal of old branches, and as a result you will get a new shrub on the old base.

All cuts to prevent stagnation of water and rotting of wood are made strictly at an angle.Try to cut the shoot not too close to the bud, so as not to damage it, but not too far from the bud, so that the shoot does not end in a protruding leafless twig.

Heat-loving types of shrubs are best cut in the spring.

Pruning bushes in the fall: roses, clematis, hydrangeas, spirea, jasmine, hibiscus and peonies - garden and vegetable garden

Girls, spring has already crossed the threshold.

The magic of the appearance of young leaves, bright primroses illuminated by the sun, beautiful snowdrops - everything suggests that the time of pleasant garden worries is inexorably approaching, when you can create - plant and transplant, embody ideas and garden plans invented on long winter evenings.

We have a fairly large garden near our house in Lugano. It even looks like a park.
This year I decided to repeat past mistakes and plant perennials. And after watching beautiful magazines, I decided to make it pink - plant roses.

Gardening is a passion or a disease, as my neighbor says.

Tell us about your garden. How did you start? Let's share our observations here. Place photos of flowers that we managed to grow.
And in general, we will make this section beautiful, fragrant and magnificent.

I'm pretty much still new to gardening, so advice is very much needed.
For example, I have not found spring fertilizer here. And what to fertilize with in the spring?

And here are photos of my last year's flowers.

I want to garden this year, but I don't know where to start. We live on the first floor and around the house there is a hedge of gray boulders, I would like to pour small pieces of land into the cracks between the stones and plant something very green and unpretentious. But I don’t know if it’s too late to start the gardening season?

Merry, it's not too late.

Take a look at this site (http://flower.onego.ru). All information about plants is there. And there is a section of a rocky garden.
You can even make a very beautiful rockery.

Share your photos later!

And now I'm trying to design an alpine slide. It's a pity that almost all the plants for such slides bloom in the second year. This year we will admire the leaves.

Lana, thanks. I hope that this year I will please everyone with photos of roses. We order from England.

good luck and we will wait for the photo!

What can I say? The very passionate gardener, however, now without a garden, I suffer. She fell ill completely unexpectedly for me - she grew up in a city in a family without a summer cottage, garden, was never interested in the land, was an eternal inexperienced black sheep at school at agricultural work against the background of classmates who knew a lot about weeding and so on.

On business: I can probably help with roses. I love them very much and at one time I studied this business well. I wrote out seedlings from England, I really want to cry, they were so good and how sorry it was to part with them.

The best fertilizer, especially for roses, is compost. Start your own and don't believe those who say: Phew, it stinks. Firstly, if the compost is maintained correctly, it does not smell at all, and secondly, only non-gardeners say this.

In the spring it is very good to fertilize with Hornspäne, I don't know the Russian name, in a simple way - ground "horns and hooves". It smells, but only if you bring a handful to your nose. Chem. I have never used fertilizers.
Since I "live in color and color", it was important for me to determine the color scheme in order to achieve harmony. Therefore, my advice is to initially decide on the color. Though there are some ill-conceived charming gardens.

Emily, if you do not mind, I will have questions for you, so to speak, to borrow experience)

With roses, or rather, their varieties and subspecies, horror how much it was tortured until I figured it out.

Do roses grow to the same height as indicated by rose growers or do variations arise depending on the soil, fertilizer, sun?

Can the color of the rose change depending on the fertilizer?

Are there any peculiarities (features) of caring for English roses?

Hurray, Emily said compost is the best fertilizer. And then I, when I tell everyone that I am making compost, they twist at their temples. Like, she completely lost her mind ((

Emily, here such a net in the form of a barrel is sold for compost, but it is quite high - about 130-140 cm. I insert a special bag inside the hole and already fill it.
Now I have it almost full. Started filling in October using a compost accelerator.

Now I think:
1. Can this compost already be used?
2. There is still grass on top, but below, I think, is the finished product. You do not know how to remove it from the bottom of this tall barrel.

Or is it better not to suffer and buy a special compost machine?

I also suffered with determining the color of the garden. But I decided to make pink with shades (it seemed a bit harsh in contrast). Any advice from your experience?

Emily, sorry for so many questions. It's just that many things are learned only through experience, but I'm still just learning)
Thank you very much.

Tatyana, how beautiful! It's great to have a garden. I wish you the fulfillment of all your ideas.

Emily, I have a question for you: how to properly cut roses so that they bloom well. I have a rose that doesn't want to bloom at all. There are a lot of leaves on it, it is very fluffy and looks healthy, but it gave only a couple of flowers. I have a suspicion that I did not cut it correctly.
True, my roses are not in my garden, but in pots on the balcony.

I answer in parts that I know.
Generally, the height is as indicated.
But, unfortunately, a lot depends on the variety, on its stability and maturity. Often it is the new varieties that turn out to be "immature" and therefore in practice are very different from the plants in the picture.
Roses are very fond of the sun, but it is undesirable to plant them near the southern wall, it is believed that they are stupid from the stagnant heat. (I have such a free, completely non-artistic translation of the knowledge gained in German, sorry). They really do not like obstacles that interfere with the development of roots.
Are English roses as a variety or in origin?
Compost - if it smells like fresh forest soil, then it is ready for use.

Rose haircut. There are adherents of spring and winter haircuts. It seems logical to me a haircut in the spring, the time reference is the flowering of forsythia. After an autumn haircut, in mild weather, roses may begin to grow and then freeze.
Actually, not all roses are cut. You, Tatyana, need to decide what kind of rose you have, because some bloom on last year's shoots, then they are formed after the June flowering, but some. perfectly do without a haircut, only the old branches are removed. Also, see if the plant has "wild" shoots from the base of the bush, below the graft site (?). You need to keep an eye on this all the time, I often come across - in other people's flower beds - such half-strangled plants. They, of course, either do not bloom at all or bloom in completely different colors - like a rose hip. Their leaves and shoots are of a different shape, etc.

Fertilizers can change the color of the leaf.

Wildlife pruning !! Exactly.
A friend's roses bloom very badly in the garden. Everyone tells her that, apparently, the roses are old. You just have to dig it up and throw it away. I didn't think so. I have already changed my mind - and the pruning is wrong, and hungry. But I didn't even think about the wilds.
By the way, indeed, these wilds can turn a varietal rose into an ordinary wild rose.

Emily, do you know how long a rose lives? Those. Does such a year come when she no longer reacts to anything and dies?

Tatyana, how beautiful! It's great to have a garden. I wish you the fulfillment of all your ideas.

Emily, I have a question for you: how to properly cut roses so that they bloom well. I have a rose that doesn't want to bloom at all. There are a lot of leaves on it, it is very fluffy and looks healthy, but it gave only a couple of flowers. I have a suspicion that I did not cut it correctly.
True, my roses are not in my garden, but in pots on the balcony.

Tanya, do you feed the roses on the balcony?

Mine started to bloom when I started feeding. And I add half the dose to each watering.

I don’t cut them. I only remove dried branches or struggle with excessive thickening.

But Emily asked right - what kind of roses do you have?

I wrote to you about ordinary "home roses. These are such low bushes, no higher than 30-40 cm in height.

I also have a floribunda and a teahouse growing in tubs on the balcony, so it's a completely different story with them.

Thanks for the answers, girls.
I "cut" roses, tk. grow strongly, they are normal large, not indoor roses, but in large pots. I don’t remember what they’re called (then I’ll look), one is "Charles de Gaulle", her leaves are not very good, but how she blooms! Lilac beautiful flowers. The one that does not bloom is very prickly, it has a lot of thorns, and the flowers are large and yellow (but 2-3 per season). I fertilize them about once a week. I have never heard of wild shoots. To be honest, I do not pretend what it is. I'm afraid that I will need to transplant them into a larger volume.
In more detail, what are you doing with the floribunda and teahouse?

Tanya, roses live a very long time. My mother-in-law has roses in her garden over 20 years old! How they bloom! Huge, healthy, beautiful Bloom from June to October and very violently. It doesn't look like they're getting old

Here is my Charles de Gaulle (pictured).

Another rose (which I do not bloom) is called Abbaye de Cluny.

Wild Shoot - You will see a green shoot growing out of the ground. If you scrape off the ground with your hands, you can see that the place from where it grows is lower than the place of grafting, i.e. where the main branches of the rose grow from. You need to cut it to zero, i.e. without leaving the slightest stump.

My floribunda and teahouse pots are 60 cm high and 35 cm in diameter. They live 3rd year.

Tan, I don’t do anything special with them.
I cut my hair in the spring. This year, the floribunda has practically not been cut. I missed the moment of active appearance of new leaves. There was no winter in Lugano, it bloomed until February, all green. Then somehow she froze. I would have cut her hair at that moment, but I somehow felt sorry for her all the green hair. I'll see how it blooms this year.
I feed each watering with half the dose.

Thank you Tatiana. No, I have no wild animals. And the pots will have to buy more. I see they are cramped. I cut my roses last week. So some of the new greenery was cut off. They are already growing with might and main.

Girls, what beautiful flowers everyone has!

Yesterday, despite the "frost", I planted ampelous geraniums. Hope they survive))
Girls, does anyone follow the lunar calendar?

No, I'm not sticking. I have everything as secured. If it is pinned to me, I will soot
I decided to buy myself another rose. To another balcony. A tree. It gets warmer - I will definitely buy it.

Tan, where do you buy roses?
I understand that the "tree" is a bole. This is not sold in every store.

Emily, thank you so much. I also paid attention to Abraham Darby. The rest - went to look)

But you upset me. I ordered now. What to do?

And another question - shouldn't you really plant a rose at the southern wall of the house? Or is there still some chance that she will be fine there?
Somehow I didn’t pay attention to this before and had already chosen a climbing rose. Now I'm racking my brains - is it possible or categorically impossible?

Oh, girls, on Saturday I'll go to the store to look after a rose, I can't wait any longer. Thank you, Emeli, for your advice, I will definitely look. You write about roses, write, Tatiana and I are winding up our mustache.

Tatyana, I look at flowers in a store not far from us (http://www.schilliger.com/index.html?http%3A//www.schilliger.com/schilliger/Pages/Adresses.html)

This is such a large garden store, there is everything for the garden, and flowers, and trees, and all sorts of decorative things, well, in general, everything that your heart desires. I even go there just like that sometimes, admire, take a walk, gaze at the beauty (especially in late spring - in summer, when everything is in bloom).
I also saw in Migros bricollage, a large store where everything is for the house, for crafts, paints, etc., but in my opinion, I haven't bought roses there yet.

Planting, of course, can be done in the spring. Container roses are generally all year round. You just need to look that they are real containerized, not fakes - this is when, shortly before sale, they are simply shoved into small container pots, and not grown initially in containers.
Roses with bare roots are best planted in autumn, roses with roots wrapped with such a cloth together with the ground can be planted in spring. Together with packaging.

It is possible to try near the south wall, although it is difficult to say. Is it strong in the sun? All day? If there is a lot of land, i.e. not immediately near the wall stones or asphalt begin, then it is possible, probably. After all, they love the sun.


I also really like "Eden Rose 85". Maybe I'll decide to plant it on my terrace. By the way, it is considered heat-resistant. Bush up to 2 m.

FIX A FAILURE EARTH

The dirty tricksters spoil the garden. So much so that the earth will not give birth to anything but grass. It is especially hard on the ground where a pancake with a shell is buried, with a spell that takes the power of the harvest for the one who perpetrated this evil. The earth can return strength and life if you bring an old wheel (wooden) from a cart and burn it with the words:

Burn, in a hall, fall ashes, and you, mother earth, breed a crop. Amen.

You need to go out before the birds sing, look around the whole garden and say:

The land of the Lord, not a sorcerer. Amen.

Drive an aspen peg into any corner of the garden with the words:

You get a stake, and I harvest. Amen.

I was told this sad story long ago.
It was still in the old pre-revolutionary Moscow. At that distant time, all the cabbies stopped in order to let them through. tens of thousands of rodents that crawled out of their burrows and descend to the daily watering place at the Moskva River. Everything stopped (including cars) in order to let through the thirsty cargo (rats and mice). All the old experienced cabbies never dreamed of disturbing the even rows of thousands of rodents running to the river.
But there is always a young and handsome man who decides to try his luck! As the old cabbies did not persuade one young reckless driver to wait, he flatly refused to wait, and even made fun of the cabbies. He rode against the monotonous gray river of rodents who only wanted to drink.
In just a few minutes, nothing remained of the horse, the phaeton, and the stubborn young cabman! Everything happened quickly and without much suffering from the rider and the horse. Everything happened in front of dozens of mesmerized eyes.No one even thought to come to the aid of one young and inexperienced cabman. blind:: hahh:

I still like "Eden Rose 85" very much. Maybe I'll decide to plant it on my terrace. By the way, it is considered heat-resistant. Bush up to 2 m.

I planted a Yeta rose the year before last, but it is withering away. Next to her, two Kletterrozen are blooming with might and main (Lavinia and Hew Down), but she is small and does not grow anymore. Sorry. And when we planted it, such beautiful flowers blossomed, the neighbor still remembers.

Tavela, it's hard to say in absentia what's going on with the rose. If she is still alive, then it is likely that she does not like the place - the ground, the lighting, the neighboring plants.
Was she still blooming?

Girls, a very good site about roses (http://www.rosebook.ru/) in Russian

I wanted to show off, but I have to limit myself to impressions.

We decided to make a rocky garden on a hill. And there were stones, and hands, and desire, there was not enough skill. It's sad.
I had already planned out all the plants, imagined how this empty and bare place would become floral and bright. But no. It turned out to be a pile of stones and no beauty.
We'll have to disassemble everything.
There are a lot of sites on the construction of such rocky gardens.
Girls, maybe, who already has such a kindergarten or have ideas on how to make it? In fact, a rocky garden is very beautiful, in addition to the fact that stones can perfectly decorate a slope or a flat place with poor soil or simply difficult and inconvenient for planting, and also gravel filling eliminates the dreary weeding of weeds. The gardens are, which is very important, unpretentious - the plants there are drought-resistant, do not require special care.

See what a beauty http://home.onego.ru/

Girls, I hasten to share the good news.
It turns out that in Switzerland there is an official representative of the famous English rose grower David Austin.
Well, it's great that you can order everything in Switzerland and not pay a hefty amount for shipping from England. By the way, there are also roses from the Cordes / Germany rose garden.
And the lucky ones in the German part of Switzerland can come to this nursery and JUST buy on the spot what they like. And from mid-June to August, you can come there and admire the magnificent flowering of a huge number of various roses for free.

This kennel is located here (http://www.rosen-huber.ch/)

If anyone visits there, share your impressions.

No, she is very weak, and there are no buds. J read that roses cannot be planted in the place where another rose grew before, they then die.

And, probably, very much can be.

But if you replace the land (a lot of land) at the old planting site, then you can plant and not worry.

Maybe you should change the land for it in the fall, if there is no other "fresh" place for the rose?

The gardener of the forum has temporarily retrained as a repair superintendent!
My husband said that during my absence, my kindergarten was overgrown with weeds. Work, of course, will have to be serious. And they also say that housewives have nothing to do!

Girls, share your summer experience - what pleased you with a beautiful flowering.

Girls, now the next garden year is coming)

In winter, there is always a calm - the plants in the garden are asleep, you do not need to water, fertilize, loosen anything and fight annoying pests.
True, this cannot be said about those who have a lot of plants at home, which require care even in winter.

The beginning of February - which means that the pleasant work in the garden will begin quite soon.
If you don't have a garden, let's try to make such a garden at home. But all in order)

I stick in all green works of the lunar calendar. I noticed that he really works and helps.

Today is February 4th, the Moon is waning in Capricorn. Literally a few days before the new moon)

Some information about the waning moon.
This period lasts about 12 days. All the power of plants is directed to the roots, so the upper part of the plant responds calmly to cutting the crown, removing leaves that thicken the plant.
But damage to the roots can destroy the entire plant. Therefore, now it is better not to replant anything, not to loosen the soil.
Now you can feed the plants with long-lasting fertilizers.

If you have a plant that has grown a lot, and there is not much room at home, today and tomorrow is the time to give the desired shape to the crown and limit irrepressible growth. Pruning during the waning moon will help the plant stay compact for a long time.
By the way, this also applies to hair (violation of forum rules) (violation of forum rules) (violation of forum rules) (violation of forum rules))
The next such period for containment clipping will come after February 22nd.

Today and tomorrow are the most favorable days for sowing greens (radishes, salads, arugula, herbs, etc.), planting for forcing root crops (parsley, celery) on the windowsill and in greenhouses.

Today I plant dill, parsley, basil, garden marjoram))
I envy those who have a wide southern windowsill in the kitchen (although parsley can be grown in shade as well). I will have to temporarily place my pots in the guest room))

Why did I want to plant these spices? Everything is sold in the store.
Yes, it is for sale.
But many times I started to cook something, and only dry spices were at hand at best. But plucked straight from the pot is much tastier.

And the savings on the face - from a bag of seeds for a couple of francs, you can, for example, pinch basil or parsley all spring and summer.

And how terracotta pots with fresh herbs decorate the kitchen! And the smell!
In short, it's decided. Making a herb garden on the windowsill!

Everyone knows about dill and parsley. But still, I will remind you of some details.
Unfortunately, the dill has to be torn by the roots, otherwise it bushes and coarsens. Therefore, we sow dill regularly.
But in parsley, it is quite often to cut the stems around the perimeter, which will only accelerate their growth. And that's what we need))

Basil, girls, it's a fairy tale. A real Italian fairy tale with a Mediterranean scent.
He is good to everyone, but he is very afraid of the cold. Therefore, now, while it is still cold, away from open windows and drafts. But in the summer it will be possible to put it on a teraska in the sun.
Basil has a good effect on the digestive processes. Used for all vegetables, especially well suited for salad of tomatoes, cabbage, spinach, beans.
Basil is a super condiment for soups, fish and poultry dishes, pork cutlets, omelets, green sauces and spicy butter. And for pasta, it is simply irreplaceable.
Basil is in great harmony with garlic, and in a mixture with rosemary - attention! - is a substitute for salt in a diet without salt.
Added to dishes at the end of cooking.

Marjoram is no less famous brother of basil in Mediterranean cuisine. Ideal for meat dishes, sauces, roasts, pates, meat fillings, mushroom dishes.
To enrich the aroma, marjoram is often combined with thyme, especially in the case of - attention! - the need to adhere to diets without salt.
The method of application depends on the dish - the meat is seasoned before frying or cooking, the rest of the dishes - at the end of cooking.

Special land for herbs is sold in Migros.

By the way, this is not the only period in February, successful for planting herbs. The next nearest period is Saturday, February 9th.

All pleasant landings and excellent appetite!

Pys Pys Yes, I forgot one more plus of breeding a kindergarten on a window - it very much unites with children. Kids can take care of plants, water from a small watering can and watch the magical growth of green leaves.
God, I love it myself. Probably not grown yet
