You can provide comfortable living conditions outside the city by building a house and planting a garden. But the trees grow very slowly, therefore, for a long time after planting the seedlings, the owners have to endure prying eyes, increase the decorativeness of the territory only with herbs and flowers. There is only one way to influence the situation, by ensuring the transplantation of large-sized trees.
Even the smallest home plot does not look complete and complete without large trees. They increase the coziness and privacy of a private area, help to divide it into functional zones, provide good protection for small plants, create shade, etc.
Planting already mature trees has a number of advantages - these are:
Trees with a formed root system and crown can be bought in a special nursery. It can be any species, including conifers and deciduous ones. The choice depends on the characteristics of the planned landscape.
To buy high quality large trees and use professional services for their transportation and replanting, you should contact the popular plant nursery "Yuzhny"... Here, clients are provided with an extensive service and favorable terms of cooperation. It is advisable to transplant large trees in winter, at temperatures up to -15 degrees.
It is important to carefully consider the preparation of the pit and the strengthening of the plant. The latter should significantly exceed the size of the earthen lump with which the tree is dug and transported. It needs to equip drainage and a pillow. It is advisable to fill the bottom and top with soil taken from the previous place of cultivation, that is, from the nursery.
After planting, it is necessary to install the constriction-spacers. They will help protect the tree from wind and soil movement. They can only be removed after three years. To reduce the risk of negative effects of severe frosts on the root system, you need to cover the area around the planting with hay or dry foliage. Regarding watering and feeding, it is not necessary to carry out them in the winter. The need for these activities will arise after the spring awakening.

Barberry grown for landscaping grows slowly during the first 2 years after planting. Adult shrubs annually grow, depending on the variety, by 30-60 cm. Therefore, one of the measures when caring for plantings is regular pruning.
Barberry is a plant that needs soil with neutral acidity. If this indicator does not correspond, lime, dolomite flour or wood ash is added to the soil.
Groundwater should be no higher than 1.5 m, since the shrub does not tolerate stagnation. For the same reason, it is not recommended to plant plants in lowlands.
Our ancestors always had grass in their gardens. It was mowed for hay, geese and cattle were grazed on it. Fruit trees grew tall, but they did not give birth every year and there were no large harvests. What does this use of land under gardens give? Hay, maybe, and received some additional amount, and the living creatures left a lot of cakes, but the soil after grazing the herd was so trampled, so compacted that even good rains could not give the garden trees enough moisture.

The earth did not receive the required amount of oxygen, carbon dioxide did not linger in it. The soil was depleted, because the mowed and eaten grass did not return to it. The conditions under which soil animals (earthworms, wood lice, bacteria and others) are able to restore fertility have disappeared. Not the soil in the garden was obtained, but the road. And how many things on the road can grow? That's right, nothing.

How is the Chinese cucumber different from the traditional ones in our beds? Is it possible to grow smoking tobacco on a personal plot? What kind of vegetable is okra and what is it eaten with? Is chayote a fruit or a vegetable? Articles in our section are useful information about various exotic plants: how to plant, how to care for and how to use.

Kiwi, persimmon, almonds, which were previously considered to be the cultures of exclusively southern regions, today surprise no one in the gardens of the Moscow region. But we will also tell you about those plants, the fruits of which you will not find in any supermarket in Moscow, but you can grow them in the country. Do you know such exotic plants? Share their photo and name on our Forum. Perhaps this "miracle" will be the next publication of our subheading.
You can plant an apple tree in spring, during the period before the start of active growth (appearance of the kidneys) and in the fall after falling leaves.
In spring, this period is shorter, because after budding, the tree begins to grow rapidly (shoots, leaves, etc.), and there is not enough energy for the formation of the root system.
Watch the video instructions for planting apple trees:
For successful apple cultivation choose the right landing time.
It is believed that the most favorable time is autumn after the leaves fall, but if the gardener has the opportunity to purchase a seedling with different types of root system, then you should proceed as follows:
A landing site is selected, it should be illuminated, without the close presence of groundwater and fertile soil. Pits are dug a few weeks before planting seedlings in such a way that there are 4 to 5 meters between the trees, besides, the alternation of apple trees with other fruit trees is also undesirable.
A pit is dug with a depth of 0.7 - 0.8 m and a diameter of up to 1.0 meters, the soil is prepared for filling the root system, and a drainage layer of sand and gravel is made at the bottom. In their absence, branches, sticks and other organic waste that can be stored for a long time during decomposition processes are stacked.
The seedling is placed in a prepared hole, while the root system is evenly located along the bottom of the hole, and the root collar of the plant should remain above the ground. The pit is filled with prepared soil, which is compacted, a supporting support is installed and the young tree is watered abundantly.
Correct and incorrect planting of the seedling.
If you want to grow two or three classic apple trees in the country to sit under them on a hot sunny day, then no problem - buy suitable seedlings on a strong rootstock in any local nursery. But with medium-sized and dwarf plants, it is a little more difficult. But they can also be found in the assortment of large garden centers selling zoned planting material.
And despite the fact that intensive gardens are considered promising only on a large, industrial scale, they are of considerable interest for small private plots. Of course, you will have to immediately accept that you will not achieve such stunning success, you will need a lot of special knowledge of care and pruning. But everyone is quite capable of growing a strip of columnar apple trees around the perimeter of the fence.
You can try to work with low-growing winter-hardy apple tree seedlings. Most of the problems with their cultivation are associated with the close occurrence of the root system. Therefore, when planting, it is necessary to immediately provide the trees with support: the wind and the load of the crop in unfavorable conditions can even uproot the plants. In the summer, combine watering trees with watering flower beds or a vegetable garden, for the winter, mulch the trunk circle with peat.
