Reproduction shrubs


Autumn — the most favorable time for breeding bushes. Variants of reproduction — a lot. Which to choose? Decide for yourself.


Most of the shrubs growing over time and forms with a variety of shrubs, at root suckers. This jasmine, lilac, snowberry, garden roses, bobovnik.

What to do? Around the bush dig the groove depth of 20-25 cm. Then, holding the shovel vertically, sharp blow and cut off part of the bush. It can then be divided into smaller parts.

In isolated parts of the division of the bush, cut the shoots (you can cut 1/3 of the escape or leave 5 cm).

BY layering.

Layering reproduce almost all ornamental shrubs and especially fine curling, as well as those who have had a long length flexible branches (japonica, buldenezh, jasmine).

The most effective method: proliferation of Chinese horizontal layering.

What to do? Spring bush, when he is still in the stage of rest, cut very short «on the stump.» In the summer the plant will grow a lot of young shoots of annuals. The next year around the bush dig the groove depth of 15-20 cm. Strong shoots bend down and sprinkle ground.

In autumn these plants can be planted has a permanent place.


Propagation summer (green) and woody (autumn) cuttings.

What to do? If harvested green cuttings, cut them during budding or early flowering plants. Do this early in the morning. Divide the shoots on the cuttings with 2-3 internodes. Plant them in a greenhouse in the sand at a depth of 1.5 cm.

Winter stalks harvested before the arrival of cold weather with strong young bushes of the first year, well matured shoots. Planting them in soil in specially prepared beds. In winter, stored in the basement in moist sand or snow.

Chekalkin nuts.

In recent years, one of the most fashionable shrubs — Chekalkin nut. What he is so fond of? He whimsically curved trunk, dense crown, large blooms amazing brushes up to 25 cm large white flowers with red throat, dotting the entire tree. Some dendrologists generally considered him one of the most beautiful flowering shrubs. After flowering forms around the capsule, the size of a walnut, of which when ripe and cracking poured dark brown nuts, reminiscent of hazelnuts with a small thin-skinned. Edible nuts in raw or roasted, and contain up to 64% fat.


Last year saw the neighbors by giving an unusual shrub-like raspberries: shoots are long and curved, covered with numerous spines and black berries, as if covered with wax. Please note that the cuttings had not. Tell me, what kind of berry, and how it can be diluted?

Marina, likely a black raspberry. Often it scare with blackberries, but berries blackberries have larger and more brilliant and completely different taste.

What makes it interesting? In this berry yield surpasses almost all other kinds of the best varieties of raspberries. Yields subject of farming to 7 kg per bush. She has virtually no pests, and should not peck poultry.

Indeed, root suckers black raspberries does not. Therefore, the best method of reproduction is considered to be the top annual shoots rooting in July and August.

WINTER stalks.

I prefer it to propagate their bushes winter cuttings. Keep them under the snowpack. Harvested in autumn cuttings wrapped in cheesecloth and put in a special planting box. I place it on the ground on the north side of the fence and finely chopped dropwise 15 cm layer of spruce branches. Top is covered with matting. The soil under similar shelter melts slower. And therefore the cuttings in the resting phase lasts longer.

By the way, many shrubs — lilac, viburnum, snow-berry trees, chubushnika — horizontal from vertical shoots are formed. They arise out of the earth and taken to grow to form independent roots. In this case, they carefully detached from the mother bush dig and planted in space as well as the division of the bush.
