Meadows Features in the garden
Decorative meadows in the garden can be really beautiful throughout the growing season, because different types of meadow colors are constantly alternate in flowering and growth. The flower meadow blooms from May to the autumn itself, and flowering is constantly returning.
Please note!The appearance of the garden with meadow plants is changing during the season, which is its great advantage. Wildflowers require much smaller care than a standard lawn (cat, loosening, aeration, sowing, weeding), and does not even require watering and fertilizer.
Gardens planted with cultural plants a little capricious are susceptible to diseases and pests, require a relatively large amount of horticultural work. A much simpler way is to sing flower glade with blooming and seed-forming annuals, two-year and perennial plants.
- Annual meadow flowers live only one season, multiply from seeds.
- Two-year-old meadow flowers bloom from the second year, and then die away.
- Perennial meadow flowers survive in Earth for several years, even if the above-ground plant usually dies. They also multiply seeds.
Thus, meadow flowers in the garden are beautiful, useful and practical.
Creating a flower glade
Meadow with wildflowers in the garden is not particularly hard work. In addition to satellite annual colors, wild perennials can be placed. They are easy to care for them, because they are adapted to environmental conditions, were not changed by selection.

How to start growing meadow flowers in the garden? What should be considered when creating flower glade? The size of the flower meadow is determined in advance, carefully looking at the site where the flower glade is planned.
Sunny or pretty shady? The wild meadow needs a lot of sun to grow rich colors. As with all plants, it is important to choose such a place to meet the requirements for soil conditions. Most of the plants meadows do not impose great soil requirements. The rest of the plants do not require care. The full effect of the flowering meadow will manifest only after 3-4 years of growing colors.

Meadow Flowers Care in the Garden
Bring into the garden a part of the local nature with a flowering meadow or flower border. Grow meadow plants in the garden is easy. For better effect, sowing meadow flowers is suitable.
The advantage of such plants is that they can adapt to any type of soil and do not need fertilizers. The most appropriate period for sowing flowers is Spring (March, April) or autumn (October, November).
They are best suited solar places, but they can also grow in the shade. Prepare for this plot in the garden from March / April or in the fall.
The surface of the future flower glade should be loosened, but not too deep so that the seeds can be embedded in the soil. To do this, first remove the remains of grass and old leaves.
Since the seeds are small, before sowing them you need to mix with a large dose of dry sand. This will ensure the uniform distribution of their sowing area. If the garden soil is loose, it is possible to sing a floral glade without a rescue.
In a compacted land, or overwhelmed due to the high proportion of loam or clay, it is necessary to add sand so that wild plants can take care.
Before sowing the soil watered well. Seeds are widely, at a sufficient distance, so that they have a place for subsequent growth. Seeds do not fall asleep soil, but just slightly pressed on them so that they sprout. In the first year after sowing the plant, in most cases, do not yet bloom.
It is plenty and support the soil moist for the first few weeks. The rest will take care of nature.
Please note!From time to time in meadow flowers, invasive species of plants appear, which need to target together with the root.
Meadow flowers should be water only after landing (2 weeks), and after rooting it is necessary to water only in the case of a long drought. The wild meadow remains untouched by the end of the year.
seeds of meadow flowers
Meadow flowers and their seeds can be divided into 2 main groups: perennial and annual. Perennial species can be sowed at the end of summer. Annual one can sow spring.
The advantage of annual plants is their abundant and intensive flowering throughout the growing season, the disadvantage is that they need to be sown every season in the spring.

You can assemble seed boxes of wildflowers at the end of summer and scatter them in the garden.
Perennials grow for many years and gradually renewed by self-sowing, so the term of their life is theoretically unlimited. When choosing seeds of meadow colors, you need to pay attention to perennial and annual meadow mixtures. No less important is the proportion of meadow flowers in the mixture, as they usually add herbs seeds. The ratio of meadow flowers in the mixture should be at least 75% to achieve the desired meadow blossom effect.
The choice can be focused on the color of the flowers, on light-minded or teothelubile plants.
