Which flowers can be sown as early as December

Housewives can reduce their spring work and plant frost-resistant flowers in December. Some crops need to be planted in the cold season, so they will be stronger and more resilient.

OBOZ.UA has compiled a list of such plants. The main condition is a sufficient amount of snow.

Cornflowers

Annual cornflowers are planted from seeds every year, while perennials are planted only once and then cared for. If you decide to plant the crop in December, the snow layer should be 20-30 centimeters thick.

Dig a bed and sow the seeds, cover it with soil mixed with manure or peat. Then be sure to cover everything with snow. Avoid places with standing water as waterlogging can harm the flowers. In spring, you will already see the first sprouts of cornflowers.

Marigold

For marigolds, you need to prepare the beds before the onset of stable frost and snow. Due to its large seeds, the plant requires deep planting: the holes should be 3-5 centimeters deep. After the frost, sow the seeds and cover everything with soil with compost or sand.

You can also sow the seeds directly in the snow. Then mulch the area with a mixture of soil and humus and cover everything with snow.
