Flower bed in July - 4 tips
- Plants that have a lot of flowers should be thinned out in between. Sunflowers and dahlias in particular are more beautiful when they are reduced. So they get a lot bigger.
- Dahlias, lilies and gladiolus often develop flowers that are too heavy and can cause the flower to twist. To avoid this, you should support these plants. You tie dahlias together, while lilies and gladiolus find a hold on bamboo sticks.
- End of July is the best time to plant autumn crocuses. The onions should be placed in loose soil up to 10 centimeters deep.
- If you mow the lawn and don't know where to put the clippings, spread them out on the flower beds. This gives the soil nutrients, keeps it moist and suppresses weed growth.
