Transcript of "Dornie powerpoint"

  1. 1. PERRENIAL FLOWER<br />
  2. 2. INTRODUCTION <br /> The term perennial is frequently used by gardeners to refer to herbaceous perennial flowers. Most herbaceous perennials grow and flower for several years. Some perennials are short-lived -- surviving for only three or four years. In the fall, the tops of herbaceous perennials (leaves, stems, and flowers) die down to the ground while the root system persists through the winter. In the spring, the plant grows new leaves from its crown or roots. Plants that grow from bulbs and bulb-like structures are also herbaceous perennials but are often classified separately as flowering bulbs. <br />
  3. 3. An Advantage of Perrenials<br />They do not have to be planted every year. <br />Many perennials only flower for a few weeks each year, you can have some perennials in bloom most of the season.<br />Perennials with colorful or interesting foliage can provide interest even when they are not in bloom.<br />Annuals can be combined with perennials to produce a continuous colorful show. <br />
  4. 4. Site selection<br />Sunlight ( sun or shade)<br /> slope<br />soil type<br />moisture requirement<br /> drainage<br />and the roles plants will play in the garden.<br />
  5. 5. PERRENIAL PROPAGATION (Starting Plants from Seeds)<br />If you plant seeds, some off-types of color, flower form, and plant habit can be expected.<br />seeded in the garden frequently fail to germinate properly.<br />you can sow perennial seeds directly in beds where they are to flower it is usually best to start plants indoors or in a cold frame and set them outdoors after the weather warms.<br />
  6. 6. Dividing Perrenial<br />Many perennials will need dividing after three years.<br />Some perennials are best left in place and not divided; examples include: baby's breath, blue wild indigo, gas plant, goat's beard, globe thistle, and sea holly. <br />The best time to divide most perennials is in the spring when new shoots are 2 to 3 inches tall.<br />Plants divided during an active growth period in the summer are slower to become reestablished.<br />
  7. 7. PERRENIALS: TRANSPLANTING <br />The ideal weather to transplant is when it is cool and overcast. <br />Avoid planting during hot or windy periods or provide some shading after planting. <br />bare root plants in water for about a half hour before planting. <br />Water container grown plants before removing them from their container. <br />Turn the pot upside down and slide the root ball out. <br />
  8. 8. WINTER PROTECTION<br />Hardy-perennials will normally survive the winter with little or no protection.<br />In colder parts of the country perennial beds are often mulched to provide winter protection. For most areas of North Carolina.<br />
  9. 9. MAINTAINING<br />Mulching- enriches and protects soil, helping provide a better growing environment.<br />Watering- is one of the most important needs of living things. <br />Weed Control-is the botanical component of pest control, using physical and chemical methods to stop weeds from reaching a mature stage of growth when they could be harmful to domesticated plants and livestock.<br />Fertilizing- is a very important component of plant health care in the landscape. <br />Deadheading-is a simple garden task that will keep your blooming plants happier and healthier.<br />Pinching- is a form of pruning that encourages branching on the plant. <br />
