Hello dear gardeners, gardeners and flower growers! Dear ones, each of you in the garden has some corners of ornamental plants, ornamental plantings, maybe someone has some small ponds, dry rivers are made. I know that many are now paying attention to this. And a plant such as, for example, Greenland rosemary, which has recently appeared on our market, will be a wonderful decoration for such a cozy corner.
"Greenlandic" - the name itself suggests that the plant is very winter-hardy. Like almost all plants in Greenland, it is undersized. In an adult state, the shrub literally reaches 20-25 cm. Lies down as if with such a hat. Unusually beautiful. This is not a ground cover plant, but a shrub, but forms like a pie, swollen upwards. It blooms with small white flowers. You see on the screen behind me what a bloom. It occurs approximately from early June to mid-June.
The flowers are small, seemingly faded, but, nevertheless, it seems that this area is literally snowy, where these plants will grow.
What does the Greenlandic rosemary love? This is not a rhododendron, but, nevertheless, it loves sour soils. The reaction of the soil (pH) should be around 5. Take the litmus strips just in case, just check the acidity. Moreover, it will not grow on very acidic soil, and on a soil close to neutral - the same thing, he will not like it. Therefore, the soil is very important to him.
The soil should not be too rich. It may contain, say, the bark of coniferous plants, it may contain some kind of processed coconut waste (for example, we sell sawdust, shavings, coconut fiber), it may contain peat. If you put all this together and add some good ordinary garden soil in proportions of about one to one. This will be quite enough for this plant.
We have now acquired this plant, and there is still quite a lot of time left before planting, and the plant, as we see, has already suffered enough in this container. Roots have already appeared in the greenhouse where they were grown.
And let's see now the root system, what it is like in a plant, what it looks like. I think that, most likely, before the time of planting - and this is about the month of June - we should transplant this plant into a larger container. You see how well and strongly the root system has braided the pot. The root system is healthy, the roots are white. These are all suction roots. If we leave the plant in a pot for two months, then these roots are practically incomplete - we will most likely overflow them, then dry them out. Moreover, the soil should be moderately moist or moist. Dry soil should never be - the plant will die.
So, I've already made a mixture of these ingredients. In the pot, first of all, we, as always, pour a drainage layer. Be sure to have large holes in the bottom so that excess water goes away. For such a small plant, drainage of four centimeters is required. The pot has very large holes. And in order not to crumble the drainage material, we could have put some broken pots on the bottom, but now we, as a rule, will not find broken pots at home, we have all plastic or ornamental plants, glass dishes, so we we lay these holes, then fill in the drainage. Do not be afraid. In this way. We level it, and now we are pouring the prepared soil. By the way, you can add a perlite to it. The soil should be loose, the soil should be air and water permeable, but at the same time it retains moisture well.
So, we pour in a small amount, tamp it a little, put our plant in this way, and proceed to powdering the soil. Dear ones, never pay attention to how sloppy I do it, because I am always in a hurry. This is the soil. From above, let us, for decorative purposes, for example, fill in a little bit of coniferous bark, which will not allow the top layer of the soil to dry out, will retain moisture very well. And, nevertheless, it will perfectly let the air to the roots, which is absolutely necessary for the plant.
We take regular water. After planting, we use plain water, preferably melted snow or rainwater. Water the plant well so that this soil comes into good contact with the roots. And beautiful, very decorative.
Since the plant will be kept indoors for the time being before planting, which means that the air humidity will be low, we still have to spray our plant from time to time, once a day, or maybe, if possible, two times.
We do the second watering in about a week, or rather, we just move our mulch a little with our fingers and touch it with our finger. Approximately on a phalanx of a finger, if the soil is dry, then we must irrigate, already using stimulants of root formation and growth. This must be done so that it is easier for the roots to penetrate the new soil, and it is wonderful to master it. I wish you to purchase this plant and plant it on your site.
