The history of breeding sweet pomponette
Breeders of the Netherlands have presented the world with a large number of beautiful hybrid flowers and plants. In 2013, another masterpiece of the Dutch breeding daffodil variety Sweet Pomponet was bred. To date, the originator of the new horticultural culture is not known, most likely, it is under great secret.
It is not difficult to grow beautiful spring primroses on your garden plot. Even a novice gardener can cope with this task. The main thing is to accurately determine the place and timing of planting flower bulbs.
Plants love well-lit places, sheltered from strong winds and drafts.
Daffodils are planted outdoors in autumn or spring.
- Spring planting takes place in April. Recommended only in temperate and southern climates. In the northern regions, flower bulbs will not have time to develop, so daffodils will grow small and weak, and garden culture will bloom poorly.
- When planting flowers in autumn, the bulbs have time to firmly take root in the soil. Daffodils are planted 1.5-2 months before the first frost.
Important! When planting daffodils, a crop rotation is observed. It is not recommended to plant garden flowers in flower beds where bulbous or nightshade crops grew.
Daffodils are not whimsical to the composition of the soil, but preference is given to loose, well-moistened soils with a low acid content.
Before the autumn planting, the soil for flowers is prepared in the spring.
- In the spring, lime, peat, sand and humus are added to the soil where it is planned to plant flowers.
- In the summer, the flower bed is carefully dug up, and the earth is mixed with mineral fertilizers.
- In the fall, before planting the bulbs in the open ground, the flower bed is loosened.
Horticultural crops will not grow, and bloom, in swampy and wet areas. It is recommended to raise flowerbeds with a close location of groundwater 15-20 cm above the soil level.
Selection and storage of planting material
The growth, development and flowering of a garden culture depends on the state of the planting material.
Before planting in open ground, the bulbs are carefully examined for damage, putrefactive and fungal manifestations. For planting, only large bulbs are selected, with a diameter of at least 5 cm.
Before planting, the planting material is treated with disinfectants.
Children appear on old bulbs, which are separated for flower reproduction. The bulbs are separated from the mother plant and dried. I put the planting material in boxes or boxes, and send it to a cool, dark place for long-term storage.
The bulbs are examined several times a month for pest damage and rotting.
Bulbous plants are planted in warm, well-warmed soil.
- Holes are dug in a prepared flower bed, at a distance of 10-20 cm from each other, and from 50 to 70 cm between rows.
- Sand is poured into the hole and watered abundantly.
- Bulbs are placed at different depths, depending on the size of the planting material and soil.
- In light soils, the bulbs are planted to a depth of 17 cm, in heavy soils from 10 to 12 cm.To obtain children, the depth of the planting material is reduced to 8-10 cm.
- The bulbs are covered with soil, and the soil in the flowerbed is mulched with peat and humus.
Before the onset of frost, flower beds with daffodils are covered with straw or spruce branches.
The rules for caring for a horticultural crop are watering, weeding and feeding.
Loosening and weeding
Daffodils do not like weeds next to them, taking nutrients and moisture from the soil. Weeding and loosening helps oxygenate the roots and regulates soil moisture.
Daffodils are demanding on soil moisture. If the winter was little snow, then the flowers are watered at the beginning of the growing season. Watering is carried out after the end of flowering. Thus, the bulbs ripen and gain nutrients for the next season.
Protection from pests and diseases
Daffodils are early flowers, therefore they are not susceptible to attack by pests. However, from excess moisture, the plant develops fungal and viral diseases.
The main measures of protection and prevention are carried out when planting flowers in open ground, treating the planting material with antibacterial agents.
Top dressing of daffodils is carried out 3-4 times during the growing season. When fertilizing flowers, mineral fertilizers and fertilizing are used. The flower is especially demanding for additional nutrition during the period of budding and flowering.
Daffodils are propagated by bulbs, children and seeds.
The seeds do not have to be bought in stores, they are collected in the summer from the formed bolls in place of flowers. The collected seed material is immediately planted in containers with fertile soil or open ground.
Application in landscape design
Daffodils of the Sweet Pomponet variety are used by flower growers and landscape designers to create spring garden compositions. Flowers are planted in small groups, surrounded by other horticultural crops that have a longer flowering period or a high decorative effect.
Lidia Alexandrovna, Vladivostok
Daffodil bulbs Sweet Pomponet were sent to me by a friend from the Moscow region. I thought that these beautiful flowers would not grow in our climate. But I was wrong, and for 3 years now the whole family has been admiring beautiful, golden flowers. True, they bloom with us later, in May, early June.
Victor Mikhailovich, Kerch. Winters are warm and with little snow. Therefore, I decided to plant an elite variety of daffodils Sweet Ocean. My wife did not believe that double flowers would grow on our poor soils. But they grew and blossomed in the first year. Huge terry balls have been pleasing us for 2-3 weeks now for 2 years.
