Violets and Pansies are floral exponents have many nuances and velvet texture very hard to match in that sense the cover image speaks for itself.
There are many species of violets, about 500, and many cultivars. If you wonder how to get what you want on your new shades provide green space, I invite you to consider this option in the certainty that you can choose with amplitude according to your preferences and needs.
Color in the Garden
In the garden, it is worth including a handful of commonly used species such as Sweet Violet (Viola odorata), but most of the plants in this family are the slightly larger Violas or Pansies even larger.
Violets are not limited to blue-violet colors are also available in white, pink, purple and even yellow. Violas and Pansies have a similar color scheme, but unlike violets are generally of one color, they are often colorful and the flowers are larger.
An additional advantage of choosing them is that they usually have a much longer flowering about violets, the latter mostly limited to late winter and spring. The violas are in bloom from spring to fall, in some cases flourish Thoughts nonstop throughout the year.
Violets need very little care, just think just growing wild with what nature gives them. But Violas and Pansies, especially with such a long flowering period, require some supervision and if necessary some frost protection. Overall, worth noting that grow in any soil, but really need moisture in dry conditions places. They can be grown in shade to partial shade and sun.
In every sense.
From now and with the first warm temperatures, our trees must be free of all traces from the harsh winter. I mean dry or dead parts per share of snow (if there was one in your area) and frost: branches and foliage depressed remains of flowers and eventually fruit, etc..
The area also includes the cleaning of their environment, ie you have to let the free base of fruits, foliage and fallen debris because they create the ideal climate for fungal diseases proliferate. If you want examples of such problems, mention pines affected by Diplodia tip blight or wild apple trees affected by apple scab.
Once you have seen the cleaning aspect, we have to check out the layer of mulch to help retain soil moisture and suppresses weeds. It’s more important in the care of younger trees, which have been on the ground for up to 10 years, but is well padded to provide older trees, too.
I suggest at least a layer of 9-10 cm thick around the trees, but not against the trunk, because the mulch piled against the trunk holds moisture and heat, microclimate exploited to develop diseases such as canker.
Finally a recommendation:
tell yourself that trees do not need to care for themselves and survive is simply rest on the danger of excuses, without committing to the care of the faithful companions of our garden
This is a small garden located in London, in which the owners did not want to see a wall resign whenever peered into the garden, what they wanted was a different garden, that despite the few meters available outside a place which could have a real intimacy …. well he succeeded.
Taking advantage of the slope of the land, built a terrace out of the house, that would be the area to be. In this area of the garden is where it has remained the order, although in reality the order within this jungle garden is vital, otherwise it could not be a walkable garden, precisely because of the number of plants that have been used to create the appearance of the garden jungle.
After the living area, find a ladder that saves the garden slope to walk inside. It is very interesting as you have created the stairs that spiral shaped, first pair did not take part of the garden with the ladder and break as linear forms of the principle of the garden.
Steps through the garden
Through the garden have been placed circular wooden steps of the same wood as the Deck of the terrace. The exuberance of plants makes walking along the promenade gives the appearance of walking through the jungle, on a much more improvised than it really is.
We’re almost summer … I suggest go thinking you’re unhappy with your irrigation system or it’s time to make changes. An important parameter is certainly the extension of your garden , another budget you have available and to be able to make a better analysis, here we approach the most common options.
First of all define what is meant by artificial irrigation all that action (other than natural rainfall) is made to bring water to the soil so that it is accessible to the vegetables planted there. This is primarily classified into two types: overhead irrigation or subsurface irrigation.
Within the first turn divided between pressurized irrigation (sprinkler, which in turn are classified as emerging and mobile) and surface irrigation. The pressurized is far more effective at leaf level and usually cover more surface area while economizing on water resources (can also be done with diffusers), the surface, meanwhile, travels or direct impact on the area of land to water (an option but recommended is the drip irrigation ).
We are talking directly from the ground, and is effective to the extent that the water arrives directly and rapidly to the part of the plant that requires more, namely the root zone.
The second is that the underground irrigation, however, requires a previous installation of plumbing pre special advantages being one of the best use of water and as pointed out the major cost disadvantage of the initial investment.
The arrival of spring completely transformed the aesthetics of the garden, is a time of year when the grass reaches its peak giving a greenish color really impressive, while the flowers and trees are stained different colors providing magic and joy.
At this time is when we begin to perform tasks to fix our gardens , is why here provide some tips useful for working with bulbs, a very good choice when it comes to colors and shapes.
The bulbs offer extraordinary shapes and colors in spring are the mainstay of the whole decoration. A wide range of species to choose from and give the garden of bright colors and flashy. We can combine different species and opt for a somewhat wild performing style natural plantations and a variety of colorful planting wide distribution.
These are some of the most used when decorating the garden with bulbs.
The Imperial Crowns also known as Fritilla would Imperils are large and very beautiful species, need land rich in minerals and well drained. They can be located in the sun to partial shade.
The American Dog Tooth Violet Erythronium oregonum or is an ideal species for generating contrasts or gradients, needs shade and can be planted under trees. Can be combined with Anemone blanda or wild daffodils.
One of the attractive and interesting ideas for the garden is to have a waterfall in the garden offers great views and a great feeling. Given that this can be done, you just have to get down to work, not without some planning aspects.
The clearance work is the first logical step, considering that is going to get a pond and waterfall. In the pond you may have to dig, there should be nothing to obstruct the area.
Then you must tamp and make firm the ground, but not before placing the container that collects in the bottom water that goes into the pond.
After this, you will need to know where everything will go and circulate the water, giving the pond depth is necessary, after which they must place the boba in a strategic location.
As a start worth mentioning a bit more clearly the scope of the title in question: we refer the operation also known as ringing of flowering plants and is a maneuver that should be done with some care, precisely, we will share.
I thought of a way to share questions and answers, starting with …
What tools will I need? Planter or shovel “digger” small rake, garden shears, watering can, pencil and labels.
When do the ringing or transplant? As soon as the seedlings have two chips and the need to avoid getting hurt by being higher.
How do I prepare the final floor? Airing raking and fertilizing. The ideal mix is composed of three equal parts of sand, peat and compost.
How do I proceed? Make a small hole, take the seedlings carefully and put it in it, cover it with soil gently pressing the base and water as possible drip for about 30 minutes. The soil should be constantly moist but not waterlogged.
What else do? If you are ringing in containers, you must move these to a place where enjoy full sunlight, if land is full, the location must meet this same requirement, otherwise … not even try!
Summer irrigation, over-watering in the garden. While the council is in the “book cover” as often said, is to keep the plants always fresh, with good watering and moist soil without risk of drying, this “enthusiasm” can also bring problems and need to be vigilant .
Along with the warm weather of summer also comes the high concentration of moisture. These high levels can cause many problems with the plants in your garden and around your home and most of them are preventable.
A simple change you can do is rationalized not only the quantity but the frequency of water supply in different areas of the garden.
To be clear: forget the watering sweep, automated and unregulated if you have the ability or opportunity to do manual, aimed at the base of the plants and measured as areas of light and shade in your garden. For example, when it comes to areas with high solar impact, the best advice is to do little before dark and thus less evaporation.
But this indication is almost 180 ° opposite semi shade if we talk about consistent: If you do this, all I get is to encourage the appropriate and most comfortable conditions for one of the most determined enemies of the summer: the fungi. One of the most problematic is surely the powdery mildew.
Its presence is revealed formade white film on the leaves of the plant sornamentales, although not extremely harmful, causing significant damage on an aesthetic level as ugly discolored foliage and depressive creating areas on the ground.
In short, the ideal slogan is spread by irrigation plant types and conditions of your garden area.
all who sees ourselves as gardeners, we have certainly much to do in this month.
I invite you to a review of these tasks, get organized with care so as not to leave anything uncovered.
* Holding moisture is a priority in times of high temperatures; especially in your area is scarce rainfall.
* Be sure to fertilize the soil, the type of nutrient you choose you, as always one of the richest and best is the compost or manure, generally at most “natural” so you can also think of emulsion-based fertilizers fish.
* Indoor plants, most of the inner lasplantasde will happen if you give it a “vacation” summer in your outdoor garden. The only care is to provide protection in case of rain or strong wind.
* Attention to birds, especially seeing that maintains the water level in their drinking and that it is always clean and drinkable.
* Tree trimming yarbustosperennes, if you want to do by taking advantage of holidays and pleasant temperatures, you should wait until new growth begins to be darker green. Once it finishes blooming glycine, which can make unapodade maintenance to keep it under control
Margarita, summer flowers in your garden. Undoubtedly the most popular flower, symbolic of spring and summer, is native to the temperate northern hemisphere, makes extensive grasslands in “carpet” white and yellow of unparalleled beauty. It belongs to the family Asteraceae and is a herbaceous plant.
One of the most significant advantages of these plants is blooming for a sufficiently long period, from spring to early winter.
When to plant? The best time to plant your seed is, as I imagined, in the spring, but if it predicts a long summer, you can do even at this time.
The plant is vigorous and naturally resistant: not for nothing that grows spontaneously without much care beyond which nature lavishes on the banks of roads and paths. Here are some tips for growing:
* Choose a sunny spot in your garden, Daisy needs a lot of light.
* Enrich the soil where you plan planting and the daisies grow best in fertile, moist and well drained.
* Make a good watering after you finish planting, supporting frequent irrigation (but not excessive) throughout the summer.
* Provides for the use of tutors or sticks stuck into the ground to keep stems strong.
* Provides a range of 20 to 50 inches between plants.
As a corollary, one of the most effective tricks: when the stems reach a height of 40 centimeters, give a pinch (this action will promote the growth of new shoots).
