Once completed last springfrost, which usually falls in late April - early May, growers are beginning to draw mass beds. That May days are most favorable for planting many annuals and perennials, because the soil is still quite wet, but warm up. Abandoned to her instantly seeds germinate, the seedlings take root and painlessly and in a short time. Consider how to carry out planting flowers in May and in any number of better planting certain plants.
Since the beginning of May is unpredictable, andafter a sunny calm weather may bring a surprise in the form of unexpected frost in the first half of the month are planted seeds and divide perennial shrubs, which are not afraid of cold weather.
Seeds germination until another 5-7 days prolezhat in the soil, so they are not afraid of frost. Therefore, annuals, which have a short-term vegetation can be planted with a clear conscience.
The list includes:
Verdure. At this time the sow varieties of annuals, to have to wait until the end of July luxurious flowering. Perennials can be planted in the summer, when the available space after flowering bulbs.
Nasturtium. A little afraid of frost, but at the expense of longGermination (2 weeks), time to wait critical time in the soil. Do not choose to landing too fertile ground, otherwise the plant "fattening": provides a luxurious green mass, but the bad flowers.
Asters. In May, planted annuals varieties thatbloom closer to the fall. Unpretentious flower, enduring and drought, and frequent rains. The only caveat - the late blight is sick, so after the Solanaceae (tomato, potato) its plant is not necessary.
Annuals asters planted in early May, to wait for an early flowering. It will come in mid-late August, when most plants have peretsvelo
Marigold. If the beginning of May dawned wet, the seedssown to a depth of no more than 3 cm, and at dry weather are planted deeper -. 5-7 cm the way, fine leaved varieties are served perfectly correcting hairstyle, and of them, you can create vivid borders.
Daisies. These flowers are cultivated as seeds and divisionbush. In early May, divide the old bushes, because the seeds need warmer weather (summer). Daisies can seat even if they are in the flowering stage, only to have to cut all the buds, so that the plant did not spend to them forces. One of the newest design techniques design - planting daisies on the lawn. Since the plant is undersized, the mower does not damage the socket, but in early spring lawn is strewn with beautiful little star.
If you want to propagate high-quality daisies, do not use the seed method, since it does not save the properties of the parent plant. Ideal - the division of the bush
Leucanthemum. This is one of the names of all your favorite daisies. In horticulture, it is grown as an annual or perennial. In May, planted varieties with a two-year development cycle. Leucanthemum called "child of the sun", because it is absolutely not tolerate shade, and in the wrong place will punish you with poor flowering.
Purslane. Enough delicate flower who does not like the cold. But because of the long growing season (96 days) after planting it is not necessary, as only begin flowering in autumn. In order to protect crops from the possible weather disasters, cover them in any non-woven fabric.
May - the time for breeding early-flowering plants. They had just faded, have not yet managed to lay the new flower buds, so ready for fresh development areas.
In early May, start to divide the 4-year-old bushesprimroses. Try to break the bush on such parts that each has at least one powerful outlet. If the delay period of the transplant by the end of May, the plant will suffer from heat and moisture leaves cease to feed. So you will have to water it often, otherwise the aerial part can completely dry out. By the way, an open space is detrimental to the primroses. Their element - the shadow. They thrive in the trees near barrel circles and under the grapes.
To primrose preserved landing leaves all healthy, drop them on a cloudy day in the beginning of the month until enough moisture
Just like a shady place and hosts. They also try to share at this time, until it is hot and does not require daily watering.
The first half of the month - a good time tolanding tuber begonias and Cannes, gladioli bulbs. But if you canna germinated in pots, then wait up to 15-20 numbers, as their leaves are very sensitive to changes of night and day temperatures.
To canna leaves built up in a short time, consider that in your area end-frozen, and only after they prick
If the site sit the old bushes irises,which are already in the middle were bare and bulging roots above the ground, you can not wait until they peretsvetut and hold the division before the plant will release a flower arrow. All the same, this is not an iris bloom profusely, as he is closely in the ground. So feel free to dig out the plant and divide it into smaller parts. The main thing is that in each delenki remained a fan of at least 5 layers. Then in June of this fresh young plant will bloom longer.
Bare roots in the center of the bush iris say that it is time to divide plants, flowering because of good still will not be
Among the purchased plants that are plantednamely in May, the most popular are roses and petunias. With roses important not to lose time if you want to see in the first bloom of the season. It is advisable to carry out planting work until 15 May. To do this, buy seedlings with an open or closed (in the film), the root system. Potted flowers suitable for planting in May, too, but it is better to postpone the 20 th and the number later. These roses are grown in greenhouses, and weather fluctuations can have a negative effect on the flower buds.
The most "healthy" seedling has three powerful stemand roots of at least 20 cm long. To nourish the plant with moisture, which helps quickly build up the root system of seedlings before planting soak in water for 2-3 hours, and only then proceed to the landing.
If the land rose until May 10, then to the middle of June, your pets will be given here are the first flowers are beautiful
A three-hour bath with a growth factor saturate seedlings reviver roses and help recover from hibernation refrigerators and cellars
For petunias, who bought seedlings orgrown on a windowsill, the best time of the landing a matter of days when cherries wither. Already in mid-June it will give the plant the first flowers in the open field and in pots or containers. If you sow seeds, it is necessary to wait until the end of the month, because the seedlings need a stable thermal conditions. Planting in the ground is rarely used, as the timing of flowering is shifted to August. In addition, too little petunia seeds difficult to dissipate so rarely, so you do not thin out, and any change shifts the timing of flowering.
If we analyze the color calendars fit inMay, designed by landscape designers, in the second half of the month in the ground go "Merzlyakov" - plants that at a young age do not tolerate the cold nights. In this list, tuberous begonia, cineraria seedlings and cuttings of chrysanthemums are divided and planted in the fall.
At this time also begin to sow plants,which bloom only occurs in the following year. They have a separate (not in flower beds, and clear, for example, in the garden), because this season the plants are inconspicuous and decorate flower beds will not. Among them -. Viola (or Viola tricolor), rudbeckia, forget-me, gesperis (wild orchid), etc. The flowers will be in the nursery until the end of August. They were then transplanted into those beds where they will bloom next year.
Tinkerbell is enough time to plant seedlings, and next year they will start to dissipate by flowerbeds samoseem, so I have to adjust their planting
In determining the specific term or seedingtransplanting, should check with the lunar calendar, to get on the day, the most favorable for the arrangement of flower beds. It is noticed that the seeds planted in a positive day, germinate faster and grow more active than those whose landing took place at the full moon or new moon.
