When to plant the seedlings of flowers in the open ground? How do you determine the time frame?
There are specially derived dates for planting flower seedlings in open ground.
Lobelia. We sow seeds for seedlings in February early March. Through 10-15 days, the first shoots appear. And we plant the seedlings of lobelia in the ground at the end of May at the beginning of June.
Petunia. We sow the seeds of petunia in February in early March. The first leaflets will appear in 10-15 days. Be sure to carry out a picking in the phase of two true leaves. Planting seedlings in open ground in May
Seeds of viola sow in early March. Pick in the phase of two leaves and in May we plant in open ground
We sow castor bean for seedlings in March and after 8-14 days the first shoots appear. We plant castor bean seedlings in late May - early June
We sow aster on seedlings in March - early April. We plant seedlings at the end of May and do not forget about picking
Zinnia sown in early April. If rare sowing can do without picks. Planted in the ground in early June, after the end of the return frost
We sow dahlia at the end of March - at the beginning of April and plant at the same time as zinnia
Flower seeds, before planting in open ground, it is best to germinate first at home.
To do this, choose the time for germination March-April, only petunia needs to be germinated in February, because it has very small seeds and it is necessary to pick a few times in order to grow a large enough plant for planting in the ground.
In the open ground, basically, all the plant plants are planted during May, it all depends on the area, it is necessary that the earth warms a little with the sun and there is no frost. Just such a time is suitable for planting seedlings of all annual flowers.
Planting annual flowers, should be carried out in cloudy weather or early in the morning. Two hours before planting the seedlings need to be watered well. And for each flower, you need to choose the right place.
Only winter (perennial) flowers come up as soon as the sun warms the earth slightly.
Seedlings of annual flowers and perennials grown from seeds this year are afraid of a cold snap and they can be planted in open ground no earlier than May - in warm (Central) regions and from mid-June - in cold ones (Siberia, the Far East).
Before the time, the planted seedlings will sit in the cool ground for most of the day - night, morning and evening, which means that the roots will not be able to supply sufficient nutrition to the stems and leaves. Seedlings of flowers, at best, will freeze and will simply sit in the ground until persistent heat, at worst they will disappear.
