We are the Blooming Garden club of amateur florists. The idea of ​​forming a club came to us, listeners of a course of lectures on floriculture at the city center of gardeners, in 2000, when at the end of classes we realized that we did not want to leave.

For two years, we met in the club with lecturers, amateur gardeners and discussed with them topics and issues of concern to us in various fields of floriculture. In addition, we continued to develop our own collections of garden plants, exchanged experience in growing them, and organized trips to the garden plots of the club members.

In 2003 we were invited to the Gardeners Center of the Admiralteisky District, which is on Moskovsky Prospekt, 7. In the summer of the same year, we held the first exhibition of cutting tulips and daffodils. And last season, we have already successfully held three exhibitions: "Garden in Spring", "Peonies and Irises", "Clematis and Phloxes", which attracted the attention of amateur flower growers, since some of the exhibits presented at the exhibition could not only be seen, but also purchase or order.

During the exhibition "Peonies and Irises" we managed to present the cutting of peonies both from the collection of the Botanical Garden and from our own plants. In addition, we helped the Center to celebrate the New Year for veterans and schoolchildren of the Admiralteisky District, participated in the improvement of one of the nearest courtyards - we planted flowers grown in our summer cottages in flower beds.

Last summer, members of our club were engaged in weeding of collectible plants in the Botanical Garden. Now the main areas of work of the club members are: continuing the formation of collections of plants in their garden, as well as improving its design; registration of the catalog of the club's plants; preparation of lectures on lilacs and clematis); rendering feasible assistance to the Botanical Garden in maintaining its unique collections of plants; a charity event dedicated to the 60th anniversary of Victory Day; formation of various flower sections in the club; holding annual flower exhibitions with the sale of our own planting material; weekly consultations of our club members in the Admiralteisky District Gardeners' Center. Our contact phone number is 310-80-72.

How to make a plant bloom

Sometimes, in order to "force" the spathiphyllum to bloom, it can be given a little shock. For example, put it in a very cool room for two weeks, where the temperature is not higher than +12 degrees. After that, bring it to the heat, feed it and wait for the flowers to appear.

Poor development and lack of flowers can be caused by various diseases and pests.

Spathiphyllum is most often damaged:

  • worms
  • spider mite
  • thrips

It is worth treating the flower and ridding it of pests in order to cause flowering. This can be done by treating it with special preparations according to the instructions. Timely removal of old flowers also promotes the emergence of new buds.

If this houseplant is provided with good living conditions and proper care, then female happiness, in response to care, will bloom annually and delight the hostess with beautiful flowers.

What kind of plants can be grown in pots outdoors?

Most often, flowers such as petunia, chrysanthemums, which tolerate temperature extremes, are suitable for planting in pots on the street. Also, there is such a flower as Sedun Morgana, which is also called Monkey's Tail or Donkey's Tail. It has long fleshy stems, pink flowers appear at the tips during flowering. The plant tolerates heat well, but does not like the shade.

Also Tradescantia, Lobelia, Verbena. All these plants will decorate the facade of the house, they can be planted in pots.

I have always planted petunias in pots, but in recent years, somehow I have no luck tol I will forget to water, or maybe I take seedlings of poor quality, I don’t know, but it will only begin to bloom and die. I stick pelargonium into these pots, so that they would not be empty, and she is grateful to save situation. This year I decided not to spend money on grafting pelargonium and will plant it. It tolerates heat well, and blooms until the very frost. if you do not like geraniums and you have a humid climate, then you can plant viols, nasturtium, marigolds, daisies, celosia next to petunias, and if you have a problem with areas, sow different salads, especially red leafy, curly-headed ones. you can plant a bush of remontant strawberries.

small progress report

Every year I plant Petunias in pots, flowerpots and pots. The flowers are absolutely not whimsical. Drought tolerant. Bloom all summer until frost.

Also, unpretentious and very elegant flowers for flowerpots and pots are Lobelia. It will delight you with flowering all summer.

And, of course, velvet and pansies.

Having decided to plant flowers in pots outside, it is important to understand that these flowers must tolerate temperature fluctuations well. You can safely plant in pots and place them on the street - petunias. Gloxinia can also be used for these purposes. These flowers will not let you down.

Amateur flower growers turn their summer cottages into a flower greenhouse. On the street, it is common to plant Chrysanthemums in bowls. Varieties flaunt in the summer Petunias, Velvet... Autumn is coming, flowering time is coming Chrysanthemum... They are valued for their splendor by the brightness of color, the leaves give the flower grandeur.

The townspeople also decorate balconies and loggias with flowers.

If we are talking about pots, then you can consider the entire range of annuals from the simplest to the most exotic. Petunia, begonia, tagetis, cochia, lobelia, alissum, cineraria, viola, balsam, cineraria, etc. a little advice, begonia, in particular tuberous, loves acidic soil. To achieve the best flowering, I recommend, in the absence of metal boxes or barrels, sticking simple nails into the ground - the effect will exceed all your expectations. A mix combination - in terms of colors and varieties of flowers - I consider the best solution for creating pot compositions.

Judging by my observations, petunias, nasturtiums and chrysanthemums are among the most popular flowers in our city. Apparently, they are one of the most unpretentious. Personally, I also like geranium. This is one of the most useful flowers, which cleans the air well and grows excellently both at home, on the window, and outside.

My answer will not be original, since I am a novice florist - an amateur and I do not have a vegetable garden, but only a large loggia (but not insulated).

So, on this loggia, I decided to arrange a mini vegetable garden, which later I was very pleased with.

She raised the seedlings herself. I planted cucumbers and tomatoes from vegetables.

And if I tell you that I live in the Far North, but nevertheless I managed to get a harvest of cucumbers and tomatoes, so to speak on the table!

I grew lobelia from flowers (white, blue, lilac). Looks very good in pots - with a hat. But in seedlings, she is very whimsical.

It was planted with pink pelargonium seeds, only one bush was grown, but what a gorgeous one - it bloomed all summer. From seeds, pelargonium is always larger and more beautiful than grown by cuttings.

I was also happy with nasturtium, it bloomed constantly - one drawback, it was necessary to systematically remove dried leaves, but it pleased me with abundant flowering.

And I also grow gloxinia (bells) blooms beautifully, up to 12 flowers at a time.

Having looked on the Internet photos of foreign sites, I drew attention to the abundance of pelargonium and petunias, so this year I decided to focus on such as:

  1. pelargonium (white, red, pink, salmon, black - I don’t know this variety yet),
  2. petunia (mostly terry 5 species)

  1. lobelia (blue, white, lilac)
  2. nasturtium
  3. strawberries, strawberries (for the soul).

I'm not an artist, I'm just learning. And in the photo “Mother-in-law's language”.

Grows very well in petunia pots. Blooms all summer until the very frost. You just need to pinch it so that the bush is more lush. Begonia, pansies look beautiful. Ordinary geranium grows well and blooms until frost. Pick off faded inflorescences, pinch, water and feed the plants.

I am planting Ageratum Mexican.

Ageratum turns out fluffy and beautiful during flowering. It can be different in color. The soil should be nutritious and light. You can plant in May or June.

Good day to everyone who came to my page!
My passion for flowers goes back to my childhood. But I started doing them quite seriously in 2009. Since then I have been leading this boast.
More than 2 years have passed, so there was a desire to "clean up" it from the least interesting photos. But still, I didn't delete all the old records, it's like a story for me)) You can trace the tendency of the development of my addictions among flowers. And also my, I will not say, skill, but rather the ability to take a photo. I want to believe that the changes are visible not only to me
I hope you will not waste your time, but enjoy the records you have viewed, and perhaps highlight something for yourself!

For some time, a little over a year, I was fond of arrowroots. Collected them in different cities. As a result, my collection consisted of more than 20 varieties. But nevertheless, over time, I said goodbye to the majority, left the most unpretentious. The same thing happened with the Aroids.

At the moment, the central place of my hobby is occupied by saintpaulias - miniature varieties. I have about 150 varieties of them.

How to grow flowers in pots or flowerpots

    The need for regular watering - often every day: the smaller the capacity, the more often you water. One option is to use hydrogel capsules. The hydrogel will allow you to hold, and then give 200 grams of water per 1 gram of powder. The granules are moistened until fully swollen and then mixed with earth for flowers. Plant feeding is necessary. It is advisable to add compost and granular or tableted slow-release mineral fertilizers to the soil for flower pots. The container has a small volume and nutrients are needed in the required amount. During the growing season, it is enough to feed the flowers in containers once every two weeks, alternately with mineral and organic fertilizing. For any flower in a pot, so that the roots do not rot, good drainage is needed to drain excess water during watering or rain. Purchased plastic and ceramic containers usually already have drainage holes, in other cases, if not, they need to be done every 10-15 cm.

List of poisonous plants

This group of plants includes those species that should not be kept at home, especially in the presence of animals or children due to extremely dangerous properties. A child, like a pet, is capable of poisoning with similar flowers or getting burns if handled carelessly.

If there are no children and animals in the house, then take precautions when caring for such plants. Be sure to wear gloves when handling these colors and rinse tools thoroughly. Do not under any circumstances cut these flowers with a knife intended for food in your kitchen.

Consider this group of plants:

  1. Dieffenbachia.
    A popular indoor plant that attracts flower growers with huge yellow-green leaves that form a fluffy crown. The flower is dangerous for its sap, which is released when the leaves or stem are cut. If a pet or a child decides to chew any part of this flower, then the juice that gets into the body will cause severe poisoning. In addition, dieffenbachia juice causes burns and irritation to the skin.
  2. Oleander (Nerium oleander).
    Popular for its bright crimson flowers. The ingestion of oleander juice into the body causes blindness. The scent of a flowering plant contributes to dizziness and feeling unwell.
  3. Euphorbia (Euphorbia).
    This plant is represented by a huge number of species and various forms, therefore, it cannot be described unequivocally. Many representatives are similar in appearance to cacti and have thorns, the prick of which is also dangerous for a living organism. Euphorbia contains white sap in its stem and leaves, which causes burns and irritation to the skin. When ingested, it causes poisoning.

By the way, on our site there is a large article about caring for this plant, so we recommend that you read it!

Its flowers are inconspicuous, and it rarely blooms at home. The sap of this plant causes burns on the skin. If the juice gets into the bloodstream when cut or ingested, then the case may end in death or resuscitation.

  • Stellera dwarf (Stellera chamaejasme).
    In the photo, Steller is in natural habitat. This plant is known for its medicinal properties, but it can only be used for such purposes under the supervision of a doctor. The flower itself has a high stem on which the inflorescences are located. They consist of 20-30 small white flowers.

    • The euphorbia family. The juice of many members of this class is poisonous and causes burns on the skin.
    • Aroid family. Most members of this group are toxic plants. Their juice is especially dangerous.

    Watch the video for details:

    Sometimes indoor plants are not only beautiful, but also dangerous. For this reason, be sure to use protective equipment when working with flowers. If, in spite of everything, you decide to acquire such flowers, then try to protect them from possible contact with animals and children.

    Feathery (or pennisetum) shaggy - in nature, a perennial, but due to its thermophilicity in culture, it grows like an annual. Of course, if you have the opportunity to transfer it to the greenhouse for the winter, it can delight you with its beautiful appearance in the next season.

    In the middle lane, shaggy pinnate is grown through seedlings, since when sown in open ground, it will bloom too late.

    Petunia is literally the main star of container gardens. It blooms all summer long and fills the flower garden with its sweet scent.
