It can be said that it is a must have for any garden collection and every year there are new varieties, so when it comes to choosing this species, we are ahead of the rest. Phlox is beautifully called a strainer – it closely resembles the bright color in the most subtle petals. And if you want your flower garden to contain many varieties of this handsome man, now is the best time for seedlings.
Phlox is usually cut to propagate your favorite varieties or to have gift copies for friends and neighbors. Indeed, a rare garden visitor during the phlox flowering period will not ask for a “sprout as a gift.” Sharing a bush is not always convenient, moreover, it damages the plant.
Therefore, if the phloxes are checked in time, there will be something to share in the fall. Rooting cuttings in open ground or in cold greenhouses and greenhouses is possible from late May to mid-summer, but preferably by the end of June. So that the leaves do not disappear, do everything in one step: cut and plant. And the earlier you plant the seedlings in the ground, the more likely phlox is to bloom in the fall. How to multiply them? 1 – For seedlings, it is better to take the middle, non-fused part of the shoot from a healthy plant.
2. Cut the shoot into segments using two internodes (leaf attachment points). The lower cut should be made under the lower knot, the upper one – 0.5 cm above the upper knot.
3. Remove the leaf blades from the lower knot, holding the kidneys that are in the axillary leaf, and cut in half at the top.
4. Carefully dip the shaft into the soil all the way to the top knot.
5. Then drive the dive stake into the ground and press the ground against the handle.
6. As a rule, seedlings are planted by the Pope
river rows, leaving 8-10 cm between the rows and 5-6 cm between the cuttings in the row.
7. After planting, pritenyayte cuttings until they give sprouts. In the first week, water them with warm water up to 5 times a day, and then as needed. After 3-4 weeks after planting, the seedlings will take root, and one or two shoots are formed in the leaf axils of the upper node.
