In the country or in the homestead, in most of the country, only plants that are resistant to frost should be planted. Be sure to take into account the moisture of the soil: plants accustomed to dry soil will simply rot in marshy lowlands.
When planning a site, pay attention to the timing and periods of flowering shrubs. The most effective will look if the garden will bloom wavy, and the plants will transfer the baton from one to the other.
With the first warm spring rays, the rich yellow color forcing will blossom. This low bush, densely dotted with small yellow bells, will become a real eye-catcher after a long winter.
Star magnolia, blossoming white in a slightly later period, will perfectly complement the forsythia.
Magnolia, in turn, will pass the baton to the unpretentious, but bright and juicy Japanese rhododendron. A soft bush full of flowers and small leaves, set on a warmer time.
Where is it without lilac? Saturated shades of familiar color and intoxicating aroma are the visiting card of the May arrival in the country. If you want something unusual, you can turn your gaze to the east - the Chinese lilac colleague looks even more gently. Grapes of flowers from Chinese lilacs do not stand like candles, but hang down almost to the ground, creating a romantic image.
In the beginning of summer, white-cream flowers are covered with a colliculus. The spreading bush produces so intoxicating a pleasant aroma that one can know about its flowering and not seeing it.
The Syrian hibiscus will be long and efficiently saturated with rich and vivid colors. This bush blooms from summer to the coldest, and its large flowers can be painted in completely different palettes.
It is better to plant a perennial plant in spring, in a humid and well-rested soil for winter. However, for bushes with a well-formed root system, transplants are acceptable at other times of the year, most importantly, frost does not occur in the near future and watering is appropriate.
In the first month after landing in the ground, any of the listed bushes should be watered abundantly, of course, to ensure that the water does not stagnate, as sometimes happens on clay soils. In future, watering should be appropriate weather.
It is possible to bring fertilizing, fertilizers and other nutritional compositions, but in all it is necessary to adhere to the measure. If you want to enrich the soil before planting, then it is better to use the golden garden rule: after fertilizing and loosening the soil, the land should rest for a month. Then the roots are not burned, and nutrients for the bush will be enough.
Otherwise, care for perennials is extremely simple, and even a beginning gardener will cope with it. All that is needed is to cut the dry branches, trim the old ones and cover the young and sensitive plants for the winter with lapnik.
Adhering to simple rules, you yourself can create a unique composition of plants, worthy of the praise of masters.
First, select the formal or landscape style you want to see on the site. The formal assumes strict lines and much more thorough care. Landscape - much more laid-back. In one garden, both these styles can be combined, for example, the paths leading to the landscape composition will be framed by a low shrub.
Second, select the viewpoints. In particular, it is necessary to determine from which places you will most often look at the garden, and already proceeding from this build the composition.
Third, determine the color range of the garden. Monochrome, when all the plants bloom in different shades of the same base color, looks gently and somewhat stiffly. A harmonious garden, in which several close colors( pink / lilac / violet or red / yellow / orange) are combined, is best perceived by the eye. The garden of complementary colors uses colors contrasted to each other( yellow / blue, orange / purple) and will become a real pride of the courageous gardener.
Fourthly, we try to make the garden as picturesque as possible, selecting plants for the periods of flowering.
