Some crops must be sown for seedlings as early as February. This is required for plants with a long growing season. In the final winter month, you can start sowing both annuals and perennials.

Clematis of Tangut

Favorite by many gardeners, a perennial liana-like plant with bright yellow flowers - Clematis Tangutsky - looks great as part of various landscape compositions. The germination period of its seeds can last from 20 days to 3 months. Seeds pre-soaked during the day are spread on the soil surface at an even distance from each other, the planting container is covered with polyethylene on top and placed in a dark place until the first shoots appear. The grown seedlings are dived into separate containers.

Gerbera

The period of active flowering of this herbaceous plant with large baskets of inflorescences of various shades, reminiscent of chamomile, falls on August-November. And the seeds must be sown in the second half of February. Sowing is carried out by distributing the seed material over the soil surface and sprinkled with moist calcined river sand. To improve germination, you can cover the container with a light film. After the emergence of 4-5 leaves at the shoots, they dive.

Carnation Shabo

An annual garden plant with a multivariate combination of flower colors. It blooms 5-7 months after sowing, so the preferred period for sowing its seeds is the end of January or February. The recommended sowing depth is about 3 mm. This flower will need several picks of seedlings, which will lead to a lush and dense bush formation after planting in a permanent place.

Primrose

A perennial with inflorescences spherical, umbrella-shaped, pyramidal or tier-shaped, a variety of shades and a pleasant aroma. Seeds of primrose are sown in the first days of February. They must first be stratified, and when sowing, do not deepen too much into the soil. It is best to press them into the substrate, then moisten with a spray bottle and place the seed container covered with polyethylene in a cold place. The pick is carried out as young shoots grow.

Lobelia

Delicate lobelia is suitable for any flower bed, carpet planting, flower arrangements and balcony containers. It is an ampelous or ground cover annual with numerous bright blue, blue, purple, pink or white flowers. Lobelia seeds are small in size, when sown they are carefully scattered over a damp earth surface and covered with plastic wrap. After the seedlings grow up, they are seated in several pieces in one container. This makes more lush bushes.

Viola

The two-year, unpretentious flower culture, viola, or pansies, is a popular garden plant with a wide variety of colors and a long flowering period. If you sow its seeds in February, the first buds will appear in mid-July. It is best to distribute small seed at a certain distance (1.5-2 cm) from each other in order to avoid picking in the future. Put viola seeds in the ground in the ground, sprinkle a little with soil on top, moisten, cover with foil and place in a warm place. In open ground, seedlings are planted in mid-May, if there is no frost.

Salpiglossis

This flower, which is distinguished by a large variety of large wide-open flowers with a marble pattern of golden or brownish veins, has annual and perennial varietal species. In mid-February, salpiglossis seeds are sown into the ground, evenly spreading over the surface with light pressure, without covering it with the substrate from above. The planting containers are covered with polyethylene or glass and left until shoots appear. In the future, the seedlings dive.

Delphinium

This wonderful garden plant has a peculiar pyramidal inflorescence, consisting of many colors of blue, purple, pink and white shades. It is recommended to store its seeds in the refrigerator from autumn. At the end of winter, they are sown in a nutritious soil mixture - in surface grooves (3-5 mm) at a distance of 5-7 mm from each other. After that, the soil is carefully poured and moistened. After 30 days, the seedlings are thinned out, and in May they are planted in flower beds.

Bell (Platicodon)

It is a gorgeous large-flowered herbaceous perennial with single or grouped 3-5 flowers of purple or blue color with thin veins of a darker color. Its seeds are prepared by placing in a damp gauze bag for two days before sowing. Then they are laid out on the loosened surface of the substrate, slightly deepened and moistened from a spray bottle, and covered with a film on top. Later, the grown seedlings dive into separate pots and at the end of May are transferred to the open ground. In the mid-climatic zone, gardeners traditionally have to prepare for the new summer cottage season already in winter. The beauty and fragrance of flower beds begins at a time when it is still cool enough outside the window.

List of annual flowers for sowing seedlings in February

Consider the beautiful and charming annuals that you can safely sow in February, their names, photographs and features of sowing seedlings.

Sowing petunias for seedlings

Petunia is the most popular flowering plant that successfully takes root not only in personal plots, but also in apartments. And all thanks to the amazing unpretentiousness and resilience. Planting a petunia will take you very little time. Since its seeds are very small, they are simply scattered over the surface of the moist soil and not even sprinkled with earth. Then they are covered with a film and placed in a dark and warm place (after the emergence of shoots, the film is removed). Before transplanting into open ground, you will have to make two picks of seedlings.
If the petunia has bloomed even before you transplanted it to a permanent place, do not worry: flowering seedlings tolerate transplanting well.

Sowing begonia

At the same time, it is worth planting another variegated beauty - begonia. By the way, some growers start sowing this crop in January. However, in this case, the seedlings will need additional lighting. If you do not have special lamps, then it is better to start sowing in February. Begonia seeds, like petunias, are sown superficially and do not sprinkle with earth.

Planting lobelia seedlings


Do not forget about delicate lobelia with small blue, pink or white flowers. This plant will be appropriate in almost any flower arrangement. Depending on the variety, you can grow an excellent groundcover or ampel plant. Sowing small lobelia seeds is similar to sowing petunias (they are scattered over the surface of wet soil and cover the container with a film). When the seedlings grow up, several specimens can be planted at once in one pot to obtain more lush bushes.

Verbena

Here is not only a beautiful, but also a fragrant plant. Since the seeds of verbena are quite large, when planting they need to be slightly buried in the soil.

Although you can leave seeds on the surface. In this case, it is imperative to cover the container with the seeds with a black film, since the verbena seeds need darkness for germination.

Carnation Shabo

This beautiful plant takes up to six months to bloom. Consider this when planning flower seedlings in February.

Seedlings of carnations must be dived several times, then by the time of planting in a permanent place, it will begin to bush. The seeds are sown in the usual way, under the foil.

Snapdragon (antirrinum)

Snapdragon (second name - Antirrinum) boasts a variety of colors and sizes. There are low, medium and tall, as well as giant varieties of this plant. For planting along the fence, buildings, for dividing the garden into functional zones, it is appropriate to use tall varieties. Low and medium-sized plants will look beautiful in borders, flower beds, in the foreground or middle plans. A luxurious perennial is unpretentious, capable of blooming all summer long, and also multiplying through self-seeding without the intervention of a summer resident.

Snapdragon is sown in a spacious, but not high container, grooves of 3 mm are made along the soil surface with an interval of 3 cm. Small seeds are evenly scattered along the furrow and sprinkled with sand, literally a millimeter layer.


The specifics of gardening with annuals

Low garden annuals planted with seedlings allow you to create a magnificent flower bed in 2-3 weeks. These unpretentious annual flowers seem to be made for a summer residence. Low-growing plant forms will make your driveway neat and tidy. Spectacular tall plants will already be located behind their colorful strip.

Low-growing annuals occupy a decisive place in landscaping due to their unique properties.

  • Non-standard compositional drawing of a flower garden when using a different combination of colors
  • The onset of flowering in a relatively short time
  • The ability to create original ornamental flowering rugs
  • Long flowering time
  • A quick and wonderful way to fill the gap between young perennials
  • Easy to care for.

Low annual flowers like to be planted along fences and paths, near walls and next to vegetable plants.

Principles for the selection of plants for a flower bed

It is necessary to select undersized annuals for a flower bed, relying on some of their general properties and the location of the future flower garden.

Beds of flowering low plants differ in characteristics:

  • High level of sun illumination. Purslane, marigolds, nasturtium, geranium, calendula, seed dahlias, alissum, petunias will bloom well here. Chlorophytum, ornamental cabbage, coleus, cinneraria will reveal the beauty of their bright leaves
  • The presence of penumbra. Such conditions like balsam, calceolaria, begonia, fuchsia
  • Humidity. Begonia, balsam, ornamental cabbage, coleus grow well
  • Color palette.

By the color of flowers or leaves of plants, they are guided by variegation, contrast or harmonious transitions. Low-growing white flowers will always be appropriate. There are many such annuals with different flower sizes.

Curb plants

Annuals play a special role for the borders. They either contrast with the surrounding plants, or neutral colors - silver and white - prepare for the contemplation of a colorful show. Picking up flowering low-growing annuals, they are guided by the following rules:

  • Continuity of the flower stream. It is necessary to sow or plant low annual flowers in two rows
  • The width of the borders does not exceed 0.5 m, plants are placed that is not higher than 40 cm
  • The constancy of the decorativeness of flowers, which does not depend on the weather. They plant hardy low curb annuals that do not suffer from rain or heat, but always remain presentable
  • Plant recovery.Curb annuals are in danger of being trampled or trampled by the mower. Rapid regeneration of the branches is a decisive moment in the choice of plants for the curb
  • Good compatibility of undersized annual border flowers.

Appropriate care, regular watering and feeding will provide a border of low flowers or ornamental deciduous annual plants with a spectacular look from spring to autumn.


Flowers blooming in October

These plants are not afraid of the first night frosts. Bright colors in the garden will drive away the autumn depression.

Ageratum

This representative of the Astrov family has another common name - "long-flowered". And this is no accident. Fluffy flowers of ageratum, similar to pompons, bloom until late autumn and add blue, purple, white and pink colors to the garden.

Perennial aster

Unpretentious "Oktyabrinka" are not afraid of frost and feel great even during the first snowfall. With proper care, perennial asters of late varieties continue to decorate the flower bed even in the first half of November.

Marigold

Marigolds were introduced to Europe in the 16th century. In Russia, these were the first overseas flowers. Flower baskets of cream, yellow, orange and brown color exude a strong spicy smell, and in dried and infused form they are a curative remedy for colds, asthma, bronchitis, stomatitis. Marigolds bloom from June to mid-autumn.

Tuberous begonia

This beauty with lush flowers in calm areas is able to bloom until mid-October. And if you grow begonia in a hanging planter, then with the onset of cold weather it can be transferred to the veranda or winter garden. And then she will delight you with her attractive appearance until November.

Verbena Bonar, Argentinean, Buenos Aires, or high

The Bonar verbena does not look very similar to other members of the Verbena family. Its almost leafless stems (up to 1.5 m high) with small purple-violet flowers, collected in umbrella-shaped inflorescences, fit perfectly into the autumn flower garden. Most often, this verbena is grown as an annual: in May, the seedlings are planted in open ground, and from August to October the plant decorates the flower bed with delicate flowers and safely tolerates short-term autumn frosts.

Gatsania, or gazania

This undersized flower (up to 30 cm high) is often called African chamomile, but its flowers are more like a gerbera. They are single baskets with a diameter of 5 to 9 cm, consisting of orange, red, yellow reed flowers with dark spots at the base, which form a ring pattern around the yellow middle. There can be up to 35 such inflorescences on one plant. In good lighting, gatsaniya blooms until frost.

Autumn Gelenium

If there are enough warm and sunny days in the fall, helenium will continue to decorate the flower garden in early October. Its yellow, orange, purple, brown or bicolor inflorescences-baskets (3-5 cm in diameter) look best in the vicinity of perennial asters.

Hydrangea paniculata

The spreading bushes of panicle hydrangea look attractive from mid-summer to late autumn. In October, plants of varieties that have the property of changing the color of inflorescences are especially effective. So, in the first half of October, paniculate hydrangeas still flaunt in the gardens Grandiflora, Little Lime, Pink Diamond.

Goldenrod, or solidago

The bright yellow pyramidal inflorescences of goldenrod enliven the autumn garden until the coldest days. Tall specimens can reach a height of 2 m, and dwarf plants grow no higher than 40 cm. All goldenrods are absolutely unpretentious and, thanks to their honey aroma, attract bees to the garden.

Canna

This stately flower (up to 3 m high) blooms from June to late autumn. Leaves are large, elliptical or oval-oblong, pointed, (25-80 cm long and 10-30 cm wide), green, striped or purple-bronze. The flowers are red, orange, yellow, pink or white. They are located on tall stems and do not wither until frost. Canna is completely unpretentious, almost does not get sick and does not attract harmful insects, even if it is not treated with anything, but in the middle lane it is not able to hibernate without good shelter.

Lantana Montevideo, or Selloviana

The egg-shaped leaves of this climbing lantana are covered with delicate pubescence, and they are jagged along the edge. Flowers - very small, tubular, lilac-pink with a yellow core, collected in compact spherical inflorescences. Bloom is observed from June to October. And when grown in a sunny, wind-protected area, Montevideo lantana can "hold out" on a flower bed, balcony or open terrace until November. And her bright flowers won't even fade.

Nasturtium, or capuchin

In the middle lane, nasturtium is grown as an annual, because in winter, in an unstable climate, this tropical flower freezes out. Most of the nasturtium species cultivated in our latitudes bloom from June to October. Flowers are simple, double and semi-double. Coloring - bright red, salmon, yellow, orange, apricot, cream.


Sowing seedlings of biennials and perennials

In addition to annuals, fast-growing perennials can be sown on seedlings in February. Then you don't have to wait for next year to enjoy their bloom. Plants will bloom by late summer - early autumn.

Pansies - sowing seedlings

The first flowers of this plant will bloom at the end of July, if you remember to sow pansies (or viola) in the last month of winter. Planting pansies is pretty simple. Although the seeds of this culture also do not differ in large sizes, when sowing, they are lightly sprinkled with a substrate. In order not to subsequently suffer with a pick, the seed can be immediately distributed over the soil surface at some distance from each other.

Planting daisies

You can achieve flowering from a daisy in the fall of this year if you plant flowers for seedlings in early February. Daisy seeds require sunlight to germinate, so they are not buried too deep. Usually it is enough to spread them over wet soil and sprinkle with a thin layer of sand or sifted humus. Daisies tolerate transplanting well in a flowering state, so if the plants bloom in cups on your windowsill, do not worry.

In the first year, flowering may not be very impressive, especially in the case of hot and dry summers.

Sowing primrose seedlings

Be sure to plant primrose in February. It's just worth taking into account that the sowing material of this culture must first be stratified. So it is worth taking care of the preparation of primrose seeds for sowing in advance. When sowing, they should not be buried too deeply into the ground, it will be enough just to press them in the soil and spray them with a spray bottle.

Please note that primrose seeds lose their germination quickly. So when buying, be sure to look at the expiration date indicated on the package.

Planting lupine

Lupine sown in February usually blooms by late August or early September. In order for the seeds to germinate faster, before sowing, they should be wrapped in a moistened cotton pad for a day. Lupine seed is sown to a depth of 5-8 mm. It is better to immediately sow the seeds in individual cups so that the seedlings do not have to be planted - the culture does not like picks.

Planting a Korean chrysanthemum

In order for chrysanthemums to bloom in the year of sowing and before the end of the season have time to get stronger and prepare for winter, it is worth sowing them in the last winter month. Chrysanthemum seeds are sown simply by pressing the palm against the soil and sprinkling with a spray bottle. The rest of their cultivation is fairly straightforward. When the seedlings grow up, they should be cut open, and a little later - transplanted into a flower garden.

It just so happens that one should prepare for the new summer cottage season even in winter. Think in advance what kind of flowers you want to see in the flowerbed and sow them on seedlings.
