A list of perennial flowers to plant in the garden in September
September is the last busy month of the gardening season. It is necessary not only to have time to harvest the entire crop but also to plant some perennials before frosts. Plant small bulb crops like snowdrops, muscari, crocus and chionodoxa in the first half of the month.
At the beginning of the second decade, you can start planting bulb flowers like daisies, forget-me-nots, daffodils, tulips and hyacinths. To know what other flowers can be planted in the garden in early fall, read OBOZREVATEL material.
General rules for planting
The depth of planting should correspond to three diameters of the bulb. The larger the bulb, the deeper it should be immersed in the soil. Large bulbs are planted at a distance of 10-12 cm from each other, while small bulbs at 5-7 cm.
They should be watered thoroughly after planting. You also have to mulch the soil with humus, sawdust, peat or sand.
What flowers to plant in September
For the bulb to survive the winter well, it is worth burying it deeper (within reasonable limits). Daffodils can be planted as early as the second half of August, but no later than the second week of September. Of course, you should also take into account the weather conditions. This year's summer was very hot, so the planting dates can shift depending on the temperature indicators and the amount of precipitation.
Peonies are recommended to be planted by root division. Before planting, the cut areas should be disinfected (e.g. with brilliant green). Choose a sunny site for peonies with shade at midday. These plants like slightly acidic soil.
Hosta is an herbaceous perennial of the asparagus family. Gardeners appreciate the plant for its decorative leaves and different varieties. This is an unpretentious culture and it can be transplanted from the end of August until November. Hosta likes semi-shaded areas and tolerates drafts poorly. It will bloom on humus-enriched, well-moisturized soils with a neutral level of acidity. They can be enriched with humus, sand, fertilizers and preparations that activate growth before planting.
Loosestrife can be propagated by generative (seed) and vegetative methods. Almost all species of the plant prefer shaded places because they can get burned from the bright sun. Planting is recommended from early September to mid-October. The culture should be insulated with a thick layer of humus for the winter. Planted flowers need abundant watering.
Earlier OBOZREVATEL shared the list of poisonous plants, which can easily be confused with harmless species. Some of them become dangerous if put in the mouth, while others can be fatal if touched. To know what danger fern carries and why you should beware of aconite, read the material.
