With the harvest, my favorite quince delighted us every autumn, whatever the summer. As the bushes grew, the number of fruits removed also increased. For more than twenty years of quince's presence on the site, its yield reached 4-5 buckets with a capacity of 10 liters.

Common laurel is widely used in hedges and group plantings. The plant tolerates haircuts very well and is used for curly shaping, and its fruits are used for food both fresh and dried.

Felt cherry, which has synonyms - Chinese, fluffy, belongs to the genus of small-fruited cherries. She is very decorative. This is a bush, less often a tree up to 3.5 m high. It is frost-resistant, can withstand temperatures down to -40 ° C, does not tolerate shading, and is drought-resistant.

At the end of June, for the occasion, I got cuttings of a magnificent variety of terry lilac. How to dispose of them so as not to lose valuable material? And I decided, to increase the chances of success, to vaccinate in different ways and on different rootstocks.

Recommendations for pruning and caring for the crown of a number of decorative and fruit trees and shrubs, as well as lianas. Trimming the root system, which inhibits the development of the aerial part.

If you drive from Lappeenranta towards Helsinki for about 100 km, you will find yourself in an amazing place - Mustila Arboretum. In early June, there, in the "Valley of Rhododendrons", you will see a sea of ​​flowering rhododendrons brought from all over the world

The trouble happened in winter, when in the Tikhvin region the frosts reached -32 ° С. The shelter did not sleep roses, and they all perished. For several years I switched to perennials. But the desire to see roses on the site did not leave me. And then I decided to breed miniature roses mix.

Unfortunately, common lilac varieties are poorly propagated by cuttings. An adult lilac bush begins to produce shoots, which are varietal. And this is a blessing: it becomes possible to plant a lilac garden. How to deal with young growth?

Rhododendrons are amazingly beautiful shrubs. In Finland and the Baltics, there are many of them in gardens, streets and parks. This means that they can grow successfully with us. You just need to figure out which species are suitable for our climate, and learn how to properly care for them.

Of practical interest for growing in our climate from the whole variety of hydrangeas are the following types: paniculate, treelike, large-leaved, serrate, petiolate and less known - Bretschneider's hydrangea and ash hydrangea.

All vaccinations can be divided into two types - budding, or peephole (kidney) grafting and grafting. The third type of vaccination - ablation, or rapprochement vaccination, is used extremely rarely, and it can well be attributed to the second type of vaccination.

If a tree that poses a threat grows on your site next to buildings or power lines, we will knock this tree down in the right direction, or cut it down in parts without damaging your site. +7 (812) 603-47-11

There are more than one and a half hundred different types of vaccinations in the world. The most commonly used of them are ten. And the most common and widespread is budding - grafting of a cutting, consisting of one single kidney, located on a small shield of the bark.

The tree peony is an ancient shrub or shrub native to China. Unlike the herbaceous peony familiar to everyone, its stems do not die off to the root collar, but remain and grow annually, while partially woody.

Vaccinations in horticulture play a huge role, but they are undeservedly neglected by gardeners who do not consider themselves professionals. And in vain! Grafting significantly expands the range of plants grown and is not at all as difficult as it is believed.

Ornamental plant nursery "Northern Flora" near Gatchina. More than 1000 varieties of perennial flowers and 150 deciduous shrubs. 18 years on the market. Plants are sold only in containers, and only your own. +7 (921) 332-13-80

Cutting is one of the methods of vegetative propagation, which allows, without special material and physical costs and in a relatively short time, to grow almost any plant from its vegetative part (shoot).

Most methods of cutting roses are laborious and do not guarantee that the cuttings will take root. Roses begin to propagate in July; by winter they do not form powerful roots and often freeze out. I learned how to cut roses with one hundred percent survival rate and without much difficulty.

A neighbor has an apple tree that gives a harvest of wonderful fruits. You want the same. How to be? Vaccination is a great solution! After asking a neighbor for cuttings, you can plant them on the wild in your garden. Vaccination point by point: 20 rules, following which, you will certainly achieve success.

Copulation, which is precisely what is called grafting with a cuttings, allows you to minimize the time when plants enter fruiting, or to accelerate the onset of flowering, if the plants are decorative. This method is simple and accessible to anyone.

Photos and descriptions of all ornamental shrubs for the garden

Summer residents often use ornamental shrubs to decorate their backyards. There are many of them, they are unpretentious, they are considered universal, they are not tied to one region. They can be seen both in Siberia and in the Urals. There are sun-loving, shade-tolerant, wild, tall varieties. Difficulties with the selection of crops that are suitable in type and color usually do not arise.

When planting ornamental shrubs, gardeners pursue several goals at once: the first is to create a unique landscape, the second is to protect low-growing plantings from wind, dust and the hot sun. When planning a design, the need for shrubs for "personal" space must be taken into account.

They require more space than other garden plants.


Trees and shrubs are part of the rigid structure of the garden (part 3)

What qualities of trees and shrubs are important to consider when planning a garden?

Crown shape and density Is one of the most important characteristics of these plants. By density, three types of crowns are distinguished: dense, massive - with gaps up to 25% of average density, in which gaps are 25-50% light transparent - gaps of 50% or more.

The owners of dense crowns include beech, hornbeam, horse chestnut, small-leaved linden, black alder, Norway maples and pseudoplatan (sycamore), etc.

Dense separate-compact crowns (from separate dense masses or tiers) have elm, oak, white mulberry, white and Canadian poplar, spruce, Siberian and Caucasian fir, cedar, Siberian and European pines.

Birch, small-leaved birch bark, white weeping willow, silver maple, ash-leaved maple, common pine, walnut have medium-density (semi-green) crowns. Light, openwork crowns have white and silvery acacia, larch, narrow-leaved oak, mountain ash, Japanese sophora, tamariks, common ash, gleditsia.

When building landscape composition it is very important to pay attention to crown shape: there are tree species with a spreading, pyramidal, columnar, spherical, oval, umbrella, weeping, creeping crown. This was discussed in more detail in first part of this publication.

1 - longitudinal-oval (spirea) 2 - spherical (Thunberg barberry) 3 - oval (park roses)

4 - spreading (Cossack juniper) 5 - creeping (horizontal cotoneaster) 6 - conical (western thuja)

Trees and shrubs with weeping crown look very beautiful by the pond, in the middle of the lawn, next to the house or in the front garden ... From relatively low ones, you can choose, for example, weeping goat willow, rough elm, or mountain, willow pear, red-leaved forest beech, drooping birch. There are forms with hanging branches - in the ornamental cherry from the sakura group, cotoneaster. These relatively short trees are ideal for small garden .

Also very valuable for small areas pyramidal, columnar, conical shapes that do not take up much space. Of deciduous trees, columnar maple, birch, hornbeam, ornamental cherry are especially graceful. And vertical forms conifers (juniper, spruce, thuja, etc.) give the garden austerity, solemnity. They are good as accents on the lawn, as "sentries" at the gate, in creating alleys, hedges , at the foot rockeries as part of complex compositions. But a sense of proportion is important here, since the abundance of conifers can give the garden a gloomy look instead of sophistication.

Creeping forms deciduous and coniferous shrubs, such as cotoneaster and juniper, successfully decorate slopes, look great in rock gardens , on the lawns.

Spherical shapes diversify compositions and look great against the background of others. For example, the spherical forms of thuja, hawthorn, Kuril tea, Thunberg barberry are good at the entrance to the house, at the forks of paths, as tapeworms on the lawn and in compositions, especially in combination with columnar and pyramidal forms. The spherical shape is an integral part regular style , good for various parterre compositions .

Modern garden design also uses an unusual plant shape called “tree - bush". Indeed, in the classical sense, a tree differs from a bush not only in height, but also in the number of trunks-branches. A tree can be turned into a bush if strong young seedlings are cut immediately after planting to the level of the root collar. Strong root growth is produced by small-leaved linden, Norway maple, common pear, any willow, small-leaved elm. Often, bush forms are obtained spontaneously if the plant loses its aerial part, and the root growth grows. Do not rush to uproot the tree right away, try to make it an object of fascinating creativity!

The easiest way to grow a tree-bush is to apply a "bouquet" planting, when several identical seedlings are planted in one planting hole, placing them along the edges of the hole. Try this method for decorative apple, bird cherry, willow. As a result, in a short time you get one powerful, lush crown. But because of the struggle of each plant for nutrients and light, such plantings are considered less durable.

Coloring of leaves, shoots and bark. Foliage and needles are the main components of a stable colors in the garden. The color of the foliage changes depending on the season, to a lesser extent, but the color of the needles is also subject to seasonal changes. In early spring, deciduous trees and shrubs are covered with soft green foliage, in summer it darkens. And the autumnal gamut of foliage - golden yellow, orange, pink, crimson - gives the garden a fabulous look!

If in spring and summer green foliage is the backdrop for flowering plants, then the autumn palette of colors, with the correct selection of species and varieties, overshadows flowering and can become the accent of any composition. Such an elegant palette can be made up of: white and red dogwood with violet-red or blood-red autumn foliage, scumpia - with bright orange-purple, barberry - with alo-orange and violet-red, Mexican foresttier - with lemon-yellow leaves, etc. ...

Maples and birches are very colorful in autumn. In autumn and winter, semi-evergreen shrubs also come to the fore: holly mahonia, boxwood, common privet, as well as conifers, which bring a southern flavor to the garden. And deciduous plants at this time are most attracted by the color and structure of the bark, not yet fallen fruits.

In winter, the mountain ash is very elegant, the hawthorns are semi-soft and liquid-leaved, the apple tree is berry, the viburnum is ordinary - they delight the eye with their ornamental crown and bright berries, flaming against the background of the first snow. The bright red pyracantha fruits, white bunches of snowberry and brown inflorescences of panicle hydrangea persist until spring.

Derain white and red are interesting for their bright red shoots, Japanese kerria - bright green, barberries - dark purple twigs and fruits, Maak bird cherry - red-purple bark with a pearlescent sheen. The common birch has a beautiful white bark, the Erman birch has a trunk as if wrapped in pink or yellowish paper, and the Pennsylvania maple has a green bark with white stripes.


The choice of plants for the garden, of course, primarily depends on the climatic zone (figs, which bloom and bear fruit in our Crimea, are unlikely to take root anywhere in central Russia, and moisture-loving South American vines will not grow in the dusty steppes of Ukraine).

Another point, no less important when choosing garden plants, is their purpose. Many summer residents dream of large yields of fruits and berries, "industrial varieties" of fruit trees are suitable for them. Others - the appearance of plants is much more important, because the dacha for them is rather a place of rest and aesthetic pleasure. For such aesthetes, decorative varieties of trees and shrubs have been specially bred.

Apple trees

Probably, I will not be mistaken if I say that the most popular "summer cottage" plant in our latitudes is the apple tree. More than 30 types of apple trees grow in different countries. And the number of varieties tends to infinity at all (modern genetics does not stand still, and the apple tree has been one of the favorite subjects of its application since Michurin's times).

The crown, the shape of the leaves, the size and shape of the fruit depends on the type and variety of the apple tree.Most often, the home apple tree is found in the gardens. This is a tree with a spreading crown, large green leaves and large fruits, depending on the variety, colored from deep green to dark red. During the flowering period, an ordinary fruit apple tree becomes a true decoration of the garden. Large flowers with a rich aroma make the tree look like a bride in a wedding dress.

Many apple varieties are zoned and adapted for growing in the northern regions. Apple trees grow in the Tyumen region, and even to the north. They recommend planting dwarf varieties (for example, Mazunin's dwarfs) and shaping them so that the plantings are covered with snow. In warm areas (such as the Crimea), a variety of varieties bloom and bear fruit: Golden Delicious, Jonagold, Fuji, Kandil, Sinap and many others.

Connoisseurs of garden aesthetics have appreciated the ornamental species of apple trees. Decorative apple trees delight the eye with outlandish colors of leaves, flowers and fruits. Most of them are unpretentious and frost-resistant. Plum apple trees have been decorating the dusty streets of Moscow for many decades. Weeping branches of a low apple tree (grafted onto a berry apple tree) delight the eye of aesthetes in many parts of our country.

Pears


Pears have received almost the same distribution as apple trees. The pyramidal crowns of these trees create a wonderful shade, and the sweet and sour-sweet juicy fruits make the pear one of the favorite fruits of the Russian population. Selection made it possible to obtain frost-resistant varieties of pears (such as Chizhovskaya), which grow and bear fruit in the Urals and Western Siberia. There are more than a thousand varieties of pears - each of them has its own flavor characteristics.

Personally, my favorite varieties are Duchess and Muscat Bergamot. The latter, however, has its own characteristics (the fruits must be removed quickly, otherwise they overripe and taste like frozen potatoes, about the view and generally keep quiet). In Crimea, both of these varieties ripen well.

Decorative pears are quite rare in country gardens. Although some species have a very, very aesthetic appearance (for example, willow weeping pear).

Apricot

I (and all my neighbors) do not hesitate to include apricots among the best plants for the garden. Despite the fact that many varieties of apricots can tolerate temperatures down to -25 ° C, they are usually planted in the southern regions. The explanation is quite simple. Apricots bloom early, and in cool springs, even in our warm regions during their flowering, there are not always pollinating insects.


In terms of aesthetics, this year I saw a fascinating picture: large flakes of snow falling on apricot flowers. Needless to say, this year we are without apricots. And such lean "aesthetic" years happen on average once every 5 years.
So, if you strive for aesthetics - start early apricots, if for harvest - late.

Peach

More than once I heard the opinion that peaches are the best plant for "warm" gardens. If the climatic zone permits (most even zoned peach varieties love warmth), the peach will become a wonderful decoration of the garden during the flowering period, and in the summer it will reward with sweet juicy fruits. They say that peaches planted from the stone are better able to withstand temperature changes (more winter-hardy due to the integrity of the root system). We planted a seedling - it has completely taken root and is actively bearing fruit.

Cherry


Cherry is a favorite plant of many gardeners. Unpretentious, abundantly fruiting, winter-hardy (can withstand up to -30 ° C), the tree grows all over the world. Depending on the variety, the height of the crown of the tree can be from 1 to 7 m.

It is very convenient to grow colonial cherries in the country. The height of trees usually does not exceed 1.5 m, while they bring a bountiful harvest (which, by the way, is very convenient to shoot due to the low height of the trees).

Separately, it is worth talking about the bird cherry (aka sweet cherry). Unlike sour cherries, sweet cherries are sweet. Therefore, it is very popular in different segments of the population. Our Simferopol cannery produced white cherry jam for the Queen of England. It is recommended to plant cherries near the southern wall of the house (so that it covers the tree from northern winds) in well-fertilized soil.

Particular attention should be paid to cherries during the ripening period. If you do not remove the fallen berries in time, the next year you can get impassable thickets of wild cherry. In addition, fallen berries serve as a breeding ground for insects, which, to put it mildly, will not add comfort to a summer cottage.

Plum


Plum is a frost-resistant tree with a beautiful crown and tasty fruits. For successful cultivation, it is recommended to plant seedlings of varieties specially zoned for a certain area. The plum grows and bears fruit abundantly in central Russia. Cherry plum is recommended to grow in the southern regions.

Coniferous trees


If for one reason or another you do not want to plant fruit plants, conifers will be an excellent alternative to them. From my own experience, I will say that the idea that they require less maintenance is not true.

We grew blue spruce. This seemingly hardy plant requires a lot of attention. But the expended effort pays off in full. The beautiful fir tree is the best decoration for the winter garden. True, this story ended sadly for us - someone liked our Christmas tree and, while we were not at the dacha, they cut it down.

In addition to spruce trees in the country, thujas, pines, junipers and other evergreens look great.

Conifers are the best plants for a garden in winter. Fluffy snow lying on the green branches of firs and pines will be a great decoration for any summer cottage.

The best bushes for the garden

There are a lot of beautiful bushes - you can't write about all in one article. Therefore, I will tell you about my own.

Magnolia

Capricious, but very beautiful "young lady". We are growing a zoned variety specially adapted for the piedmont Simferopol climate. There are varieties adapted to colder climates (for example, to Kiev). Requires care and attention.

Chubushnik

Chubushnik is very similar to jasmine. During the flowering period, it fills the whole area with a sweet aroma. There are varieties of chubushnik with other shades of smell, and sometimes without it. Chubushnik bushes adorn gardens and summer cottages from our warm latitudes to St. Petersburg (however, there are probably more to the north).

Well, how can we do without them. Standard garden varieties growing all over the world are probably found in almost every summer cottage. Many gardeners, without hesitation, will call roses the best plants for a summer residence.

Climbing roses (such as Katerinka), braiding the walls of the house, fences and gazebos, are also very popular. We still have a thornless variety of rose hips, which also looks great both during the flowering period and until the very frosts.

Conclusion

About fruit trees - as they say, neither subtract nor add! Eh, I would plant both peaches and apricots - but the climate is not the same ...
But if we talk about the best ornamental shrubs for the garden, then my personal hit parade is headed by spireas. I like everything about them: unpretentiousness, and the ability to grow well, and charming inflorescences that attract bees. Some spirits and foliage are decorative! And if you combine bushes with different flowering periods (spireas are subdivided into spring-flowering and summer-flowering), then this composition will decorate the garden for a very long time. They are excellent plants for hedges, single plantings and shrub groups.

Another favorite of mine is rose hips. Yes, it is prickly, but sometimes it is even very handy: a rosehip hedge is an excellent protection from uninvited guests. And its fruits are tasty and healing - I will certainly dry the rosehip for the vitamin tea for the winter. And it turns out that it can bloom not only at the beginning of summer: just the other day I saw luxurious rosehip bushes, on which, next to clusters of large bright fruits, flowers blossomed! An unusual sight - it's a pity, I didn't have a camera with me ...

Lilacs - what a garden without lilacs! You can talk a lot about it, but I think this ornamental shrub needs no special introduction.

You should definitely plant viburnum in the garden. In the spring she will delight with flowers, and by the fall she will completely transform, wearing a regal purple outfit. I do not like viburnum berries, although I know about their healing properties, but this does not prevent me from admiring them every autumn! And the birds are grateful: they get the whole harvest

If there is a shady corner in the garden, hydrangea will decorate it. It blooms not only beautifully, but also for a very long time, and among the many species and varieties it is difficult to choose - I want to plant everything at once))

And I also really like the mountain ash. He has one drawback - a very aggressive root growth. But recently here at a neighbor I saw a neat mountain ash bush in the middle of the lawn. I ask - how do you restrain him? And the neighbor is surprised: they say, why restrain him, he does not grow too much ... I don’t know what the trick is, but it’s a fact: I have two seedlings in my new garden, brought from the old one (where the field ash was growing like a weed), of violent activity for the season did not develop. Could it be the soil? Let's watch ...

And it would also be worth mentioning hawthorns, forsythia, snowberry, elderberry, barberries, rhododendrons ... But you can't list them all!

Alas, I will not share invaluable information)
The shoots were brought by the mother-in-law from a friend and neither she nor I know the variety. Here is a photo. True, not very successful (I photographed the swing, not the dog rose).

Rosehip respectively on the left)

Photographed the rosehip separately
Rather a jerk of gardeners
This is a curly variety and our final idea is that it evenly wraps around this net (pictured), and does not climb into the gazebo. Therefore, the lower branches are carefully trimmed. They just bother us in the gazebo. So the bare stems are obtained. And in height it is higher than 3 meters.


Graceful partial shade: trees and shrubs with a half-shade crown

We continue to explore the amazing world of spectacular inhabitants and contenders for summer cottages - ornamental trees and shrubs. After reviewing the most extravagant breeds with a lace crown (see the post Trees and shrubs with an openwork crown for decorating a summer cottage), it's time to get acquainted with the owners of semi-laced "hair".


We choose trees and shrubs with a semi-green crown for giving

Even at a cursory glance, they seem to us more dense in the upper part, formed by branches, leaves or needles, complemented by flowers and fruits.

As a rule, the gaps in the semi-glazed crown of trees are from 25% to 50%.


Semi-shade pale tseanotus 'Marie Simon' is very beautiful in bloom, photo of the author

Often summer residents are attracted by the undeniable advantages of such woody plants. On the one hand, they give a denser shade than openwork rocks, which is especially valuable on hot summer days. On the other hand, their crowns form a soft partial shade, in which such herbaceous plants as hosts, badans, buzulniks, geykhera and others feel comfortable.


Shade-tolerant perennials will be good under a decorative apple tree, photo of the author

For the most diverse regions of Russia, the list of woody ones with a semi-openwork crown is even larger and more diverse than that of openwork species.


Half-shade rose, photo of the author

You have already met some of them on the pages of the site - common bean or anagiroli became the hero of the article May "golden rain" of bean plants.

The lovely Kolkvitsia appeared before you in the post Kolkvitsia - the beauty of May.


Luxurious half-shade beauty - colquicia, photo of the author

Forsythias in a burning gold spring outfit, like real fashionistas, have repeatedly defiled on the site in the following materials:

  • Forsythia marked with gold
  • Golden forsythia: planting and caring for a spring shrub
  • Forsythia. So far, only yellow.


Golden forsythia intermediate in half-shade,photo of the author

It is so arranged by nature that most of the semi-green woody ones miraculously transform in May, completely drowning in waves of frantic flowering. How lovely weigels look during this period, you have already seen in the article The Changeable Beauty - weigela.


Lovely weigels photo of the author

We have already admired the multicolored foam of flowering of ornamental apple trees in the post Ornamental apple trees: types, cultivation features, placement in the country.

Undoubtedly, summer residents liked and are already loved by the half-laced buddley with graceful arched branches, and the articles helped to appreciate its unusual beauty:

  • Buddley of David or Ball of the Butterflies
  • Love and honey of the Chinese beauty Buddley David.

Discerning summer residents appreciated the dogwoods after the publication of the article Decorative Dogwoods for country aesthetes.

And this listing could go on and on, but I again selected the top 5 semi-shaded woody trees, about which there is still little information on the site.


Low-growing ornamental conifers and shrubs for the garden

Let's start our selection with undersized representatives. After all, miniature plants are in great demand, since they allow you to create original pictorial compositions. The most popular are:

  • Mountain Pine "Goulden Glow"... The shrub develops slowly, but can become a bright accent in any garden, regardless of the season. The needles stand out with a pronounced dark green color in the summer, and with the arrival of cold weather they turn yellow, especially at the top. Height - up to 60 cm, but only after reaching the age of 10, and diameter - up to 95 centimeters. The variety is frost-resistant, capable of withstanding temperature indicators up to -35 degrees. Prefers areas where there is sufficient sunlight.
  • Juniper "Blue Chip"... Height - only up to 25-35 centimeters. Branches can grow to the sides up to 1.5 meters. The needles are painted in a silvery-blue color; in winter they become more saturated. The plant is not capricious, prefers loose soils, suffers from excess moisture.
  • Cross-pair Microbiota Jacobsen. Some of the branches spread along the ground, and some rise slightly. Therefore, supports are often installed next to the bush. The height of the crown is up to 70 centimeters, and in volume - up to 60 centimeters. For a year, the growth becomes only 3 centimeters. The needles are dark green in color, with the arrival of cold weather it becomes brownish, and in the spring it turns green again. Such crops germinate in partial shade, even in shaded places they will feel good.
  • Cypress tree "Aurora"... It features wavy patterns, the branches are spirally twisted, they create a crown with an irregular cone. The shrub reaches a height of up to 65 centimeters. The plant is frost-resistant, but at the end of the winter season it is better to cover it with agrofibre to prevent sunburn. Prefers moist soil types and illuminated areas.

Such representatives will find their application in the creation of borders, the design of gazebos, entrance groups, for landscaping verandas or stairs.
