Get a luxurious garden in spring: which flowers should be planted now
Experienced gardeners know that preparations for the spring blooming season should begin in the fall. It is during the Indian summer that you need to plant the plants that will be the first to germinate and bloom when winter is over.
However, not all species can tolerate autumn planting. Some do not have time to form a root system before winter, and some germinate quickly and die from the first frost. Therefore, OBOZREVATEL asked what kind of flowers should be planted in September to get a luxurious garden in the spring. And here's a list of plants that you should start planting right now.
Tulips - if you plant them in September, the bulb will have time to take root and the flower will bloom in the spring. You can also plant them with the onset of the first warm weather, but in this case, they will bloom only next year.
Daffodils - for these delicate spring flowers, the same rules apply as for tulips.
Crocuses are one of the earliest spring flowers that wake up with the first warmth and sun. Therefore, they should be planted in the ground in September.
Cockscombs - these flowers can either be sown with seeds or planted by dividing an adult flower by the end of September. The main thing is not to delay too much so that the plant has time to take root.
Astilbe - spectacular and unusual flowers overwinter well in the open ground if planted not too late and huddled in time to prevent them from freezing.
Lilies are another bulbous flower that should be planted in September to ensure that they bloom the following May, not another year later.
Periwinkle is an evergreen plant that will delight you with its foliage in winter and bloom with blue star-shaped flowers in spring. It takes root well if you plant it in September.
Chrysanthemum - despite the fact that autumn is the flowering season for this plant, it tolerates planting in September. Even a flowering bush can be placed in the ground and it will quickly take root.
Echinacea is also a perennial flower with late flowering that takes root well if planted in the fall. However, you need to choose a method of propagation by dividing an adult plant.
