Potted flowers

The flowers in pots and all the care to be reserved for them

Potted flowers need special care to always stay fresh and lively. The important thing is to know, for this purpose, that their soil tends to be depleted very quickly: it will therefore be necessary to carry out a periodic renewal of the soil, perhaps with products on sale by the various florists that help the plant in the absorption of nutrients. it needs. As the plant grows, then, it is necessary to repot it in a container suitable for its size, to give it adequate space to develop. This operation, however, must never be performed when the plant is in bloom, as it is the period in which it is most delicate and the sudden change in vital conditions could cause it to wither. Obviously,

The flowers in outdoor pots


To embellish the outdoor space of our home, it will be better to choose both flowering and green leaf potted plants. In fact, the most resistant are certainly the evergreens, but even small shrubs and creepers could make you look good with little care. Even if many types of pot plants adapt to the open air of the balcony, even if they are confined in limited spaces such as those of the pots, it is good to limit the choice among those that suffer less from this condition. If the balcony / terrace is north-facing, the most congenial potted flowers will be those who love shady positions; if it is exposed to the south, however, the most suitable plants will be those most resistant to the sun and drought. If, on the other hand, you choose perennials, you must take into account that they will be able to withstand even low temperatures, but not the frost; moreover, there will be no need for the annual repottings that the other types of flowering plants need instead.

Cut flowers in pots


As for the cut flowers, however, it will be necessary to adopt particular methods of care in order not to make them wither too quickly. First of all, choose a vase that is large enough to accommodate enough water to compensate for what the flowers lose due to transpiration; you do not have to pile the flowers in the vase, in order to give space for the buds to open and get enough air. There must never be a lack of water in the vase and it must not be too much, so as not to stagnate and remain clean. The stems can be cut by a couple of centimeters every 2 or 3 days, to be more absorbent; the vase must preferably be of silver and in any case never of metal. Adding a few teaspoons of sugar to the water can also help to provide nourishment.

Potted flowers: the most resistant outside


Among the most resistant flowers outside there are all those that well tolerate sudden changes in temperature. The primrose is one of these, with a plant that produces cluster or umbrella flowers, often bi-colored. There can be shades ranging from yellow, to white, to red to purple; flowering begins in February and continues until late spring, if the soil is well drained and acid enough. The ideal temperature for primroses is around 15 degrees. Then there is the violet, which loves shady and well-ventilated places, with its very very fragrant purple flowers. The soil must be drained enough but not excessively, because it suffers a lot from the stagnation of irrigation water. On the other hand, the tulip is more delicate, which loves mild temperatures and the sun, but never exposure to direct sunlight. which otherwise would make it wither. The important thing is never to keep it uncovered when it freezes, as it would wither and the flowers would wither quickly.
