In spring, you already dream of picking colorful flowers and making beautiful summer bouquets out of them to decorate your own four walls.
There is a long list of summer flowers that you can now prefer at home in bowls or pots. Some robust flowers can even be sown directly into the garden from March. These are e.g. Calendula (Calendula), Cornflower (Centaurea), Summer Azalea (Clarkia or Codetia), Creeping Flower (Iberis) and Maiden in the Green (Nigella).
Incidentally, the term summer flowers means the so-called one-year varieties of flowers, which only bloom for one summer. Among the summer flowers that you could sow immediately in pots or bowls on the windowsill are snapdragons (Antirrhinum), spider flower (Cleome), levkoje (Matthiola), ornamental tobacco (Nicotiana), sun hat (Rudbeckia), flour sage (Salvia farinacea), Tagetes and Zinnias (Zinnia). It should be noted that one does not plant several types of flower seeds in the same bowl or in the same pot. This is important because the germination times of the different flower species are very different.
Some summer flower species need no special preparation. You can just as well plant them in the field in April or May. But trying out is always worthwhile, because this is the quickest way to learn!
A few of the one-year, flowering summer flowers do not like it at all if they are transplanted during their breeding season. These flower species include, for example, cloudwort (Lathyrus odoratus), shell flower (Moluccella) and Sommerphox (Phlox drummondi). They are all brought forward from March. They should be sowed individually, that is in peat pots, and later simply planted in the garden with the pigtail.
Pre-cultivate summer flowers and vegetables:
1. Sow. Evenly distribute seeds on seed soil in seed trays. For dark germs, sieve and squeeze substrate over it.
2. Pour. Pour seed gently and cover with transparent plastic hood, glass plate or foil. Keep bright and warm.
3. Pikieren. If the first correct leaves appear after the cotyledons, it can be piqued. To do this, gently lift the roots of the seedlings out of the soil with a spatula.
4. Planting. Fill peat pots with sowing soil. Form planting holes with the piping rod and insert the young plants up to the cotyledons. Pour softly. Warm, very bright, but not sunny.
5. Spawn and cure. In order for the plants to branch out bushy, cut off tips. Continue to put in a very bright but cool place in the garden.
