• How to grow beautiful hydrangea?
Have you ever seen in a movie or in a charming park hydrangea bush ?! Like you imagine such a piece of beauty ?! Perhaps they wanted but did not know how ?! Well, let's find out in this case as well, and get yourself a piece of beauty.
First, let's understand what it represents this wonderful plant. So, hydrangea - this is a great shrub that will certainly please your eye, but only with an excess of sunlight. Of course, someone will say that you can do an average lighting. Well it is possible, but in this case do not be surprised if, instead of the beautiful, blooming hydrangea bush, you get something frail and unattractive. And do not look for the various supplements and food additives. None means no substitute for the real sun.
As for the time, the plan shrub planting or early May, or close to the middle of autumn. Zagotovte advance square hole: two feet to two feet and a depth of about 60 cm distance from bush to bush - at least one meter.. Remember, bushes like space. Fill a hole worth as follows: two parts leaf land, one part sand, two parts Peat mixture of humus and peat part. Also, but not necessarily, you can add twenty grams of potassium sulfate and sixty grams of granulated superphosphate. And do not listen to those who speak about the benefits of lime. Here it is quite superfluous here.
Yes, and more time. Although hydrangea itself is very fond of the sun, however, it does not mean that by planting a bush, you can leave it in the sun. Please note, only until the roots take root, then under direct bright sunlight herb simply podvyanet. And if in the first year you decide to bush flowers please, do not hurry to rejoice. It is best to remove them neatly as in the first year of the roots should be hard to eat, and earlier flowering can pick up the lion's share of nutritious things.
Under intense as the sun power is meant power. Do not throw the fertilizer during the first two years, wait for the third. And then it is already possible to start. It is desirable in early spring. First, add a cocktail of minerals and trace elements at the rate of thirty grams per ten gallons of water. It is better if it is just to be a complex supply for hydrangeas.
Next, in the period of formation of flower buds can change the composition. Per square meter: Fifty grams of potassium sulfate and eighty grams superphosphate.
Complete fertilizer desirable composition of grass, to insist on the water. Sprouted one bush is enough ten liters of nutrient composition.
As for watering, that is it should not be sorry. Moisture - the best friend of hydrangeas especially in the summer. On hot days can be watered every three to four days and not less than two liters of water. If the periodically rains, the watering can be reduced to one and a half times in two weeks. In general, better look at the situation, if you see that the ground begins to pine away, you can pour water if the soil is soft and wet, then fill up the marsh condition is better not to be.
I would also like to add that as hydrangea is beautiful, just as she and whimsical. This plant can not just plant and watered occasionally. Above all, for it is necessary also to take care of, namely, loosen the soil around the bush. It is advisable to do this each time after watering. Strongly dig is not worth enough to scoop up three to five cm.
Finally, in early spring, when the plant leaves after the winter sleep, it should be lightly trimmed. Do not spare the crop too much, leave only the strongest shoots. Let them be a dozen, but it will allow the bush to grow even more lush color. However, with each successive year of the bush can be left more shoots.
