After each application of fertilizer shrubs need watering. * Watering is much better to water less frequently but for longer. Typically, plant roots penetrate deeply, and that the water came up to H, we must give it long enough. This moisture deeper soil layers will be enough plants for a long time. Frequent, but short watering moistens only the top layer of soil, which dries quickly, and water to the roots does not reach. A good solution is to use the hose for capillary watering. Such Equipment can be purchased entirely in gardening shops and firms dealing with irrigation, or you can use a garden hose, in which we must make small holes every 30-40 cm, and the end of the cork.
This hose can remain on the surface, and being disguised in a special recess. Slow and regular moisture enough to carry out once a week for several hours, which will provide the optimal watering. * Wintering Winter hardiness of plants depends on many factors, so the zoning on frost resistance of plants should be taken as indicative information. Within each zone may be Areas with microclimate milder or more severe relative to the average in the area. Also within the garden plants growing near a house in a safe place to suffer low temperatures better than the plants on the south or eastern side of the house exposed to strong winds. It should be remembered that the plants are the most frost in early winter (December, early January), and as we approach the spring of frost decreases (lose quenching). Even very resistant to frost the plant, after the vegitatsionnogo period and development of leaves, may suffer from even a small cold (eg actinides).
The biggest threat to damage frost appears in the February-March in locations with strong solar activity, when, after a frosty night, the plants exposed to heat and can not withstand the temperature jump. This is particularly dangerous for the evergreens. Shelter such plants vozduhopropuskayuschim material or branches of conifers can provide an adequate defense. Young plants are always more sensitive to frost than older who have a deep root system. Therefore, the young plants in the first years of life (2-4 years) in need of special care shelter. Different parts of the plant in different ways relate to frost. Roots in more than ten degrees more sensitive to frost than oderevesnevshie shoots. In areas where there are severe frosts with little snow cover, you can create a layer of insulation, mulching the soil around the plant, such as bark. In this case, the base of plants sprinkled on the height of 10-15 cm, which allows you to keep the lower part of shoots from dormant buds from which the plant can recover, even if all die above ground. At the same time, mulch around the plants is very useful in summer, because delays moisture in the soil and reduces the appearance of weeds.
