Garden Notes Summer Winds Down – Martha Vine Seasons

In mid-August, repeated greetings “We are counting,” with only two and a half weeks left! ”Summer is declining, and for many here, a minute soon.

Rudbeckia for the end of summer

Some of the easiest to grow flowers in late summer are the Golden Rudbeckia family. For starters, these are generally referred to as “black-eyed addicts,” but according to Alan Armitej in Herbaceous Perennial Plants, Rudbecia consists of about 30 species, two-year-olds, and all of North American descent. Most sunny areas are vegetative, tolerating low to high humidity.

Years ago, I bought and replaced the six-pack Glorycea Dessie (Rudbekia Hirata). This species has annual, biennial, or short-term annual growth because it is sown by itself. Investing in those six packages was unique.

In many cases, the differences in those first six small plants manifest themselves in golden differences — all yellow; Yellow with deep golden center; Yellow with chocolate brown center; Yellow with a two-color red / brown center; And amazing bleeding with all the red / brown flowers. Plants are often not deceived by deer and tolerate dry areas. The trunks are long, strong and straight, perfect for cutting.

At the end of the year, I leave the coffee cones at the end of the year to feed wild animals. Now, without much effort on my part, the six-pack seed is spread out in different places. I will only edit those who have planted themselves in the wrong place.

Many gardeners know and love Rudbekia Fulgada Van. sullivantii ‘Goldsturm.’ The bold golden hills, from one end of the island to the other, are home to the lending structure and availability of climate plants such as Perovskia, Flux and Werrodrod.

Although it was previously a plant cloning, the Goldstrum expenditure and seed multiplication plants eventually sold as the Goldstrum. Plants grow significantly in good garden conditions — weeding, or division. However, these are not the only useful rudbeckias. If you have space, Rebecca is an effective border backer and filter. R. Trilloba, R. Lassiniata, and R. Maxma and all their plant species and clones contribute gold in late summer gardens.

We need trees

Do you see trees on your street or in your local park? Can you identify them? Do you have a favorite tree or species? This is my favorite species in the picture, a spectacular Oxford fragrance on the grounds of the Polish Hill Avenue. It will be a red tower burning in the autumn.

In tropical climates, the shade of trees makes it invaluable. Vineyards are being cleared and forests are being cleared, and urban / suburban thermal-island effects are taking place rapidly. (July 21 – The hottest on earth!). Overheated bodies can tell the difference between the shade of trees and the shade of buildings — structures can cast shadows;

Replacement, tree-cut-tree, unthinkable. However, individuals can educate themselves about island trees and plan to plant as much of their resources as possible. The mission of the Poly Hill Arbor is to advise the public on tree matters.

The qualities may include chronic, drought and salt tolerance, wind-resistant structures and timber, and longevity. Many candidates will be oak trees.

Recent heatwaves have caused many trees, shrubs and plants to shed their leaves. As long as there is enough moisture and new growth, this is not difficult, it is just a way for a lot of leaves to carry too much moisture on a plant. Unfortunately, because we need every tree we have, some, such as trees that grow in extreme conditions or are worried about road temperatures and pollution, will not succeed.

In the clearing

Destroyers who go to the forest do not live well in winter. Lavender also needs good fertilization, drying, and sunny conditions. Trim and trim the plants to produce new growth that is strong during the harvest season, paying attention to excessive tree growth and trunks, and to remove debris around the crowns. It is also used for other green leafy plants such as santolina, starch (“sheep’s ears”), and salvia.

The vineyard has a long spring season. The only thing that is diminishing is the light, which fades to the end of winter. Even if your garden suffers from low light levels, working in gardens may involve soil improvement.

Mixed crops and green manure in different gardens produce different results depending on the situation. Buckwheat is very popular, it is easy to kill but it attracts pollen, adds silica to the soil and grows fast.

Winter rye, cereals, many different cloves and grains, grains and radish are also used as cover crops and green manure. Shop for a wide selection of New England Suitable Soil Owners and Improvements locally or check out Johnny’s Selected Seeds and Pintry Garden Seeds.

Absolute pursuit

As the season progresses, take a minute to review your garden. Gardens, not “landscape”, are immutable. Plants grow and become crowded, taking up a lot of space. Or it must grow and be cut, stretched or divided. The “perfect” year of gardening is often a busy year.

I have a small bed with a pillar on which the bush grows. They need to be dug up and reassembled to make the look unbalanced. Two other things are also deadly. Sometimes placement is not satisfactory, even if it is lost in inches.

Color schemes do not always work as intended. As the trees and shrubs grow, light conditions may change, but they will no longer be able to flower or grow. They need many years of division. Even sidewalks and stairwells may need to be crossed again.

Mark places and photograph the layout. It helps when the harvest arrives – you are ready to start, but the plants provide some hints of identification.
