Growing saxifrage seedlings (Arends et al.

Everyone, without exception, loves fairy tales. Childhood memories flooded in when, on cold winter evenings, in the dim light, someone probably read aloud to you. before bedtime. I was very pleased with the adaptation of one of the most beloved literary works of P. Ershova. It is surprising that our cinema turned to the old Russian history and presented it to the viewer on a wide screen in a beautiful new way. But, in order to get the most out of it, you need to forget what you read in the book. In the modern version, there are: the era, Ivan and the horse, a few more characters. The plot is dynamic and exciting. Delight! Stunning costumes and special effects, luxurious architecture, graphics. Living in a frantic rhythm, we forget that we are falling out of our own rhythm, and living in a stream - believing in miracles and in our own strength - this is what this wise fairy tale is about! The huge IMAX screen maximizes consciousness. The musical accompaniment deserves special respect: a mix of modern with old Russian melodies.

Plunge into the magical world of a fairy tale

Saxifrage is a ground cover perennial herbaceous unpretentious culture. In regions with cold winters, it is grown as an annual. There are plants with pink, red, purple, yellow, white flowers. It also has other names: Saxifraga, Rip-herb. Such unusual names were obtained due to the fact that a flower culture can literally destroy a rock. The most popular type: Arends' saxifrage (height about 10-20 cm), flowering of the species, as a rule, in late spring, early summer, is winter hardy and unpretentious, but it does not relate well to drying out of the soil. In terms of care, Arends' saxifrage is very unpretentious, it just needs to be watered periodically, preventing the soil from drying out. Loves open areas with loose, drained soil, but can be grown in light partial shade.

Mandatory stratification of saxifrage seeds

Saxifrage seeds need to be stratified (this applies to Arends' saxifrage and other species). Stratification is meant to mimic the cold winter conditions experienced by seeds in the wild.

This preparation procedure improves seed germination (they germinate faster, more amicably), and it also affects future plants: seedlings grow stronger, they have stronger immunity.

For stratification, seeds must be kept in humid conditions at a temperature of 2-4 degrees Celsius for 4 weeks (minimum 2-3 weeks). A vegetable shelf in the refrigerator is ideal. During the procedure, you need to ensure that the seeds do not dry out; when they dry, they are moistened from the spray bottle.

Pay attention! Seeds can be stratified both before sowing in a container with soil and after planting. The latter option is more convenient, because after stratification, you just need to move the container from the refrigerator to a warm room.

Features of the procedure for different methods:

  • Stratification after sowing seeds in a container with soil. Land in a suitable pattern (described below). Moisten the soil and cover the container with a lid or plastic film, put in the refrigerator.
  • Stratification before landing. To do this, mix the seeds with river, clean and calcined sand on a saucer. Moisten the sand mixture moderately, place in a plastic bag, and tie it up. And then put it in the refrigerator.

How to properly plant saxifrage on seedlings: preparation and sowing scheme

If you know all the steps and their sequence, then you can completely plant the saxifrage on seedlings. Below are the main stages of this event.

By the way! Saxifrage can be grown both at home in a pot (on the windowsill, on the balcony) and in the open field in the garden. By the way, the ground cover saxifrage looks perfect in rocky gardens (on an alpine hill, in rockeries), as well as in ordinary flower beds in the foreground, in border plantings.
