We allocate a place in the garden
Proceeding from the fact that the budlea is a heat-loving plant, it is necessary to give it a sunny and open place. It is also necessary to take care that it is protected from drafts and cold winds. Experienced growers recommend placing the flower near a high fence, or garden and country houses.
We care for the proper way
Regarding the care of this flower, there are a number of specific points that need to be considered. This section stipulates many factors that will not only provide proper care for the David's buddha, but will also reveal all its potential.
Soil and top dressing
The soil factor of the budlei is not very demanding. Nevertheless, planting should be done in a fertile, light and well-moistened soil. The bushes react extremely positively to the application of fertilizing in the soil. It is desirable to use nitrogen fertilizers, which have a beneficial effect on its growth, as well as recovery after a winter, cold-filled period. Experienced growers insist that the second top dressing should be carried out by the middle of July, and phosphorus and potassium should already prevail in it, which will contribute not only to rapid aging of shoots, but also to intensive flowering.
During the same summer period, care for the budle, including David, will include the introduction of organic fertilizers: compost and / or humus. It is not superfluous to be pampered with budlet and ash in small quantities. Proper, and most importantly timely introduction of the necessary fertilizers into the soil, will give the bush the opportunity not only to develop quickly, but also abundantly to blossom. In turn, the absence of fertilizer application will lead to a morbid and exhausted appearance. She also will not be able to bloom in her season.
Features of summer care
We cover for the winter
Certain care for David's buddha is also covered in the preparation of this shrubby for winter. Many amateur gardeners cut this bush to a level of 10 cm, and cut the leaves around the flower and cover it with additional peat or humus. This method is unacceptable due to the fact that on warm winter days, or too wet winter, the bush will simply become stuck and will be destroyed.
Let's look at the correct way of preparing shrubs for wintering. Delicate shoots of this thermophilic flower by October are recommended to be cut to a "stump" condition. However, the archival moment will be the careful shelter and warming of the budleae roots with fallen leaves, or peat. It is generally known that snow is the most reliable protection.
So, to prolong the life of the flower and reduce the level of stress from the effects of low temperatures, experienced flower growers build a special shelter for the budlea. A certain frame is built with the use of metal or wood, which is covered with ordinary polyethylene, the lower part of which is pressed down by a reliable load to the ground, and inside, like a warm layer, is stuffed with dry leaves.
Propagation of budlei with seeds
Seeds are planted in the last month of winter, or in early spring, to obtain seedlings. Already after two or three weeks, after sowing the seeds, the first shoots will appear. The seeds are very small in budle, so it is not recommended to plant them in the ground too deeply. Professional flower growers recommend mixing seeds with soil and distributing the resulting composition evenly over the soil. Then prororoshit them with a light substrate and moisten the soil with a spray. After that, the container should be covered, if not glass, with a plastic bag for the purpose of keeping it within the vital moisture. To remove polyethylene, or glass is allowed only after the already grown up shoots have risen.
Propagation budlei propagation by
On numerous photos or videos laid out in the network, you can visually see how the reproduction occurs in this way. He also has the advantage that the gardener always knows exactly what kind of plant works. So, the budleya of David excellently propagates cuttings, both green and stiff. In case of using the latter, the branches that matured with the subsequent storage in the refrigerator until spring are cut in autumn. Then they get out and cut up to 20 cm in length, after which each part is planted in a prepared substrate in advance.
Pruning the buddle
The maximum and annual pruning does not allow David to be more prolific. This procedure is the necessary care that this rose bush needs. The presented photo shows how much space this plant can occupy. Therefore, correct pruning makes this flower ideal even for a small garden. Crop the budlei of David, up to 30 cm, in early spring. In order to get a tall bush, they are shortened to 90 cm. Also, annual pruning stimulates not only abundant flowering, but also the growth of young shoots. With the help of pruning plants, flower growers extend the life span.
