In an effort to create the most suitable for the environmental conditions of the middle band shape, breeders have combined different types Weigel, selecting the best quality. Thus, hybrid shrubs have dense foliage and lush flowering buds and range of shades is quite wide: purple, pink, purple, white and carmine flowers are pleased not only for its beauty, but also a great flavor.

Recommendations for planting

Planting Weigel is not noted particular difficulties. We just need to find a good place and properly arrange the landing pit.

Prepare for landing

When choosing a place to land, consider the following preferences Weigel:

  • Solar shine. In the shadow of this heat-loving plant will not bloom at full strength;
  • The absence of drafts. Wind too ruffled leaves and inflorescence Weigel, which adversely affects the development of the plant and its appearance;
  • Moisture. The land must be kept moist but not boggy. Water stagnation at the roots is not allowed;
  • Priming. Weigela grows best in fertile, non-acidic, loose soil.

Tip! If the land in your garden has high acidity, spend before boarding Weigel liming.

As for the seedlings, it is better to choose the three-year sample. They are easier to make and grow faster.

Landing

Weigel planting is carried out in early spring. Fall planting will not give good results as before the cold weather has time to root seedling not.

Pits 50 * 50 cm high bushes digging at a minimum distance of 2 m. To assume a smaller interval of low grades. 15 cm from the bottom of the well should take drainage, designed to protect the roots from rotting. For this purpose, use gravel or broken brick.

Tip! If the soil is loamy, add sand drainage.

Soil mixture for Weigel typically of turf, sand, and humus (2/2/1). In use as a fertilizer potassium salt (40 g per well) and superphosphate (60 g per well).

The roots of the seedling is recommended to treat stimulant (eg, "Radifarmom") and seat it in the hole so that the Radical neck remained at ground level.

After landing must spend mulching, laying at a distance of half a meter from the seedling desyatisantimetrovyh layer sawdust, bark or peat.

Tip! When planting Weigel groups, mulching must be carried around the entire ensemble.

Next, let's talk about propagation Weigel.

Reproduction: the main ways

The best and most productive way is a reproduction Weigel cuttings.

graftage

Green shoots are cut in June and July. Res make a straight line. cutting length should be 20 cm, and width - 5 mm. The cut branches were placed for a few hours (6-12) in a growth stimulant, after which the lower leaves are removed and immersed appendages 10 cm in proryhlennuyu fertile soil, which is in the shade. Cuttings watered twice a day. If successful rooting of the spring Weigel planted in the selected location.

Stiff branches are harvested in autumn or early winter. Planted them in boxes with a mixture of sand and soil nutrient. Top and sprinkled with sand. Place a container under the film and monitor the level of humidity that constantly needs to be high.

seed

Leaving capsule with seeds on the bush, you can wait for their "samovysadki", after which the seedlings transplanted into a breeding ground with sand (2/1). Seeds can be collected and sow crates. Note, however, that to preserve the properties of varieties can not be in such a reproduction.

During the multiplication of seeds of varieties Weigel properties are lost

slips

Decide on the lower branches, tilt them to the ground, an incision was treated with a growth factor and added dropwise. A year later, the seedling is separated from the parent bush and planted in their own place.

Tip! To avoid drying out, mulch Weigel sawdust, wood chips or peat. Such a coating will retard evaporation.

Following each watering must spend loosening.

top-dressing

Weigel fertilize several times:

  • In the spring, soon as the snow begins to melt, feed bush complex fertilizers to restore it after the winter frost;
  • Before flowering make double phosphate and potassium sulfate (30 g in 10 liters of water);
  • Weigel in autumn after flowering is necessary to restore and prepare for winter. To do this, use of potassium and phosphoric recharge.
In Weigel has three points when it is most in need of feeding

Shelter for the winter

It is particularly important to shelter the young plants. Adult bush can easily cope with the cold, but svezhevysazhenny likely to freeze.

Low bushes completely covered with a special material, or spruce branches. High tie Weigel, leaves, if they have not fallen down, left, and at the bottom is placed a protective layer of straw or lapnika.

Depending on the severity of the winters and the age of the plant Weigel can be, and sometimes is necessary to cover for the winter

Tip! If the winter is harsh in your region, create a small bush shalashika setting around it and tightened their support lutrasilom or spunbond. Place inside such shelters fill dry foliage.

It is important to make sure that at the shelter there was no snow, or young shoots can be damaged.

pruning

Dry and frost-bitten Weigel branches pruned annually. Make such sanitary pruning in May. After flowering crop produce forming, which facilitates re-bloom.

Once carried out more thorough in 2-3 years, rejuvenating pruning Weigel, during which removed the branches heavily thickening bush.

Diseases and pests

Weigel is the main enemy of aphids and caterpillars gnawing leaves. The major danger is the damage to the roots. If the bush has ceased to grow, and the leaves turned yellow and wilted, perform preventive watering of the soil insecticides. It is possible that when planting with compost in the pit came mole crickets or larvae of the May beetle. At the first suspicions make appropriate preparations in the ground ( "Medvetoks" good fit).

In the case of correct landing Weigel withstands diseases. Processing periodically bushes fungicides, you will protect them from bacterial diseases.

As you can see, planting and care, pruning and propagation Weigel - simple procedures. Through them consistently, you will achieve amazing results.
