Heichera is one of the few plants that adorn the garden from spring days to the first snow in late autumn. It is unpretentious, but with an improper landing and violation of the rules of care, it takes a miserable, unpresentable appearance. To eliminate the loss of attractiveness, you need to familiarize yourself with some of the features of this plant, find out where and how to plant it correctly, what fertilizers, fertilizing, how to water, etc.
Choose a place to land
Choosing a place for planting is an important task on which the duration of flowering, the density of the color of the leaves depends. A clear answer to this question does not exist, since the choice of place depends on what kind of plant you are planting. But all young plants do not like wind and cold. It is important that the flowerbed is well lit. The plant prefers light, water-permeable soils, therefore, in the initial period after planting, heicher should be abundantly watered.
They do not like plants of moisture stagnation. The delicate root system from excessive moisture quickly rots, the plant withers.
Planting, conditions for further cultivation and care
In March, you can plant. Reproduction is possible:
- by seeds;
- division of the bush.
Seed cultivation is unreliable. Young plants can not adopt the varietal trait of the mother plant. Gardeners recommend growing seedlings.
Geicher does not require regular feeding. Feed it with fertilizers with care, without fanaticism. The ideal option is to use fertilizers such as Florist Micro and Florist Rost. These are special fertilizers containing the necessary trace elements.
With their help, you can easily achieve the results:
- strengthen the immune system of the plant;
- when transplanting, increase the ability to survive;
- provide balanced nutrition with microelements;
- provide active, fast, high-quality plant growth.
These fairly effective fertilizers are affordable for everyone. With them, your garden will be beautiful and lush.
Advice: as soon as you notice that the leaves grow dull, fade, the flowers cannot bloom for a long time, provide the plant with fertilizing!
