After planting perennials, in addition to horn shavings, they get a good 40 g of blue grain per square meter per year to help them get started. Give 20 g in April and another 20 g in late June. Alternatively, each perennial gets a shovel of compost and 40 g / m2 of horn shavings in March. Upholstery and wild perennials come at the right location, e.g. B. in the herbaceous bed, almost without fertilizer, some compost in spring is enough.
In the autumn, the perennials can easily be divided with the spade for propagation and then pulled as cuttings. Some species, such as columbine or lady's mantle, even care for offspring in the herbaceous bed themselves: they gather so strongly that you can constantly pluck seedlings alongside the plants.
Planting perennials - in a bucket
If you have a lot of bulb flowers in your garden that bloom in spring, you will have a few gaps in your flower bed by the beginning of summer at the latest. Because it often takes weeks for the onion flowers to pull in their leaves after flowering and you can finally cut them off. You can hide the gaps by planting shrubs in pots and placing them on them.
Hardy perennials add color to the white winter. The Christmas rose even blooms
It is important that you do not place the tub directly on the ground in the bed, as this would rot the leaves of the onion flowers. Put short squares under, then the onions can move in under the pot. If the bulbs have covered larger areas in the garden, place several tubs of perennials in the bed. If you use high-quality substrate and frost-proof tubs for planting, the perennials can stay in the tub for years. A 10 cm high drainage made of expanded clay in the perennial bucket is important. However, cover them with fleece before filling in soil and planting the pot, otherwise it will be washed into the expanded clay so that it loses its drainage effect.
If you don't want to constantly buy new perennials, you can easily multiply them: by division
Gravity or the search for light often cause perennials to "tip over". These little helpers are indispensable in the garden! We tried the simple plant supports ourselves.
Large shrubs quickly develop their own life in the garden if they lean in different directions or overgrow the path. A firm support provides the necessary support. You can find a selection of these at Ward Gartenbedarf. You are particularly flexible with the articulated supports: you simply hook them together and are free in shape and length (two heights, from 28 euros / 10 pieces). The semicircular "moon supports" are virtually invisible, with which you can "straighten" perennials that fall apart (three heights, from 25 euros / 10 pieces).
The "tried it out" conclusion: plant supports
- + The support wires are relatively thick and stable and can be easily pressed into the ground
- + Easy assembly
- + Durable
- + Flexible uses
Ideal for raspberry bushes, but also other plants with flexible rods, the attachment option with an elastic mesh tape. This is stretched around the plant, the rods are tied with special clips or unhooked again (tape 20 m 6.50 euros, clips 50 pieces 5.90 euros, all at www.gartenbedarf-versand.de).

An automobile assembly plant was looking for a solution for their powered hanging belt for the transportation of auto parts. Too often the conveyor chain had to be replaced. The conversion to a special chain from Tsubaki provided a remedy
