Some summer seasonal flowers
The petunia abound in light lemon yellow, yellow-green, pink, purple, white and others. Their seemingly inexhaustible colors can be observed from the middle of the spring to the late autumn. Petunias can be planted on the curbs in the garden as well as falling if you have arranged a place for chests and hanging baskets. Some of the varieties are sweet aromas and are durable. Petunias love sunshine and frown on the rainy days of summer because they do not develop well. Recommended to be irrigated and regularly fertilized.

The gerbera has amazing colors on long handles that do not wither for weeks. The decoration of these flowers in your home will bring an attractive accent. The favorite of many florists, the summer gerbera, opens in the morning its lovely and brightly colored inflorescence baskets and closes them again in the evening after the sun goes down.

Marigold is defined as a simple plant.
Blooms from the end of May until the first frosts. Do not define it as a banal flower, but realize its need. There are new varieties that are more or less kite and have different altitudes. It is often considered a multi-year old, and rather it has sustainable seeds that are self-spreading. The next year a new plant emerges. Marigold is one of the most favorable plants for the hottest sun, is extremely durable, and drooping, after watering is restored quickly.
Salvia blooms from June to late autumn and adores the fiery sun.
They call it Flame, which, according to different theories, is due to its sharp, bright red colors. The one-year saliva is suitable for the curb, and the perennials are spices, which are used in the culinary industry, and from its leaves is made tea that serves for healing purposes. Its application in medicine has been a great success. There are varieties that are popular in semi-shady places, but their colors are not so bright.

Kala is the magnificent bridal flower with non-terrestrial beauty, which we can observe in the summer. It is not so capricious and could be present in every home and garden if we are familiar with the principles of planting and growing. There are two varieties of the flower and there is a significant difference in cultivation. Although a summer flower does not like the heat, the overheating of the tubers is fatal and can deprive the plant of colors. With appropriate well drained sandy soil and moderate sunshine, the colors could reach impressive dimensions. The clam retains fresh colors for a long time, and when blossomed, they begin to close and green on the outside.
Varieties have been created with a huge variety of colors – snow-white, all rainbow colors to dark, almost black. They are planted from mid-April to June. They are demanding on the soil. The most suitable for them are the native and humid warm soils. They must be fertilized with manure, the most favorable period being autumn. Gladioli requires regular and moderate moisture. On dry and hot places they do not develop well and give distorted stems, small and degenerate, painted flowers. Do not stand the windy places. Flowering is necessary during flowering.
General principles of planting
Planting the summer flowers can be done from the past year, popping in spring or planting as seedlings. If grown from seeds, they should be spiked and diluted. Garden centers have a variety of ready-made seedlings and ready-made container plants. The soil must be digested and treated to obtain a fine mixture. It is good to enrich it with manure or combined fertilizer. On a flattened paddle with a small blade or saddle holes are made for seedlings. Plants are planted on chest lines, at a distance of 10-12-15 cm (depending on the species). After planting, the soil around the plants seals well.
General principles of growing and watering
To bloom continuously with numerous and quality colors, all summer flowers need care. All, and especially those grown in pots, need to feed organic or combined fertilizers (nitrogen-phosphorus-potassium) 2-3 weeks in the summer. If only nitrogen fertilizers are fertilized, a large foliage is formed. The soil around the flowers should be loose regularly, 1-2 times a month at a depth of 4-5 cm, to weed grass and weeds and to clean the blossoming flowers and inflorescences.
The first watering is done separately on each root. It is then performed on average 2-3 times a week with a lot or with a low jet hose. Naturally, it can not be defined as 100 percent regularity because temperatures and rain vary. Everything is relative, but the best thing is that soil drainage gives clear indications of the need for water, and we can not get away.
