    • If the primer was depleted, and before landing, additional portions of humus were not added to it, feeding. Organic substances in fresh form are not contributed, because they can cause burns, only overwhelmed dung and compost. And also applies compositions designed for decorative-deciduous perennial crops. Beneficially affects the growth and blossom of the host by watering the soil with a solution of the ideal preparations, “Biohumus.»Make it needed when forming flowers, and 2 more times during the vegetation of the plant.

    Methods of breeding

    Thanks to a peculiar color, the original bushes of the hosts are consistently popular with gardeners. The demand for this culture is high also because it usually does not arise with its cultivation. For breeding, you can use the finished seating material, but also take advantage of already growing shrubs. Vegetative method most preferable, it gives the opportunity to get large and well blooming plants. True, it will have to be patient for this, because crown extension occurs within 1-2 years.

    You can share hosts: child shoots they throw away every 2 years, but it is better to do this once every 4-5 years, starting from 3-year-old culture.

    A good deer will have no less than 3 outlets, and if many seedlings are not required, the parent plant does not dig out, carefully separating the escape spade from it.

    Cuttings are collected from May to June, when the growing vegetation is actively walking, and the leaves have already grown, and they take well separated, caused shoots with the “heel”. The leaves on 1/3 are cut off, then the cuttings are planting in greenhouses before rooting, and only after that they determine permanent place.

    Not the most reliable method of breeding – seed, since the seedling germination is very low. In addition, this is a time-consuming process providing for hardening, processing growth stimulant and creating greenhouse conditions that need to support constantly for several weeks. Then you have to dive and reducing during the year. In the open ground plants transplanted only for the second year.
