If you’re thinking about adding some geraniums to your own garden, here are a few tips on how to care for them:
-Geraniums prefer full sun and well-drained soil. If you live in an area with hot summers, partial shade may be necessary to prevent the leaves from scorching.
-Water regularly, especially during dry spells. Geraniums are drought tolerant, but they will perform better with regular watering.
-Fertilize every 4-6 weeks during the growing season with a general purpose fertilizer.
-Deadhead spent blooms regularly to encourage new growth.
-Overwintering is not necessary, but if you’d like to save your plants from year to year, pot them up in the fall and bring them indoors to a cool, sunny location.
Of the many flowers that start with G, Gladiolus is one of the most popular. These stately plants are known for their tall, spiky blooms that come in a wide range of colors. Gladiolus flowers are native to Africa, Madagascar, and southern Europe.
The gladiolus is a perennial flower that blooms in the summer. The gladiolus belongs to the iris family and is also known as the ‘sword lily’. The plant grows from a corm, which is an underground storage stem, and can reach up to four feet in height. The blade-shaped leaves are alternate and can be either green or purple in color. The flowers of the gladiolus are borne on a spike and are available in a wide range of colors including white, yellow, pink, orange, red, and purple.
Gladiolus need full sun to produce the best flowers, and they also need rich, well-drained soil. Amend your soil with compost or manure before planting to help with drainage and nutrients. If you have heavy clay soil, consider planting gladiolus in raised beds.
You can plant gladiolus bulbs in the spring after the last frost date or in the fall before the first frost date. If you live in a climate with very mild winters, you can even plant them in December.
To plant, dig a hole that is three times as deep as the height of the bulb. Set the bulb in the hole with the pointy end facing up, and then fill in the hole with soil. Firm the soil around the bulb so it is secure.
Water your gladiolus bulbs after planting, and then water them regularly throughout the growing season. They will need about 1 inch (2.5 cm) of water per week.
Godetia is a beautiful flower that blooms in shades of pink, purple, and white. It’s a perfect choice for a summer garden. Godetia is also known as the Farewell-to-Spring flower because it blooms in late spring or early summer.
The genus Godetia, family Onagraceae, comprises 10 species of annual or perennial plants native to North America and Mexico. Some species are: Godetia amoena, Godetia axillaris, Godetia bicolor, Godetia purpurea, Godetia grandiflora.
These plants reach 30-100 cm in height and have racemose inflorescences with bell-shaped flowers. The flowers can be white, pink, lilac or purple and appear in summer. They are used to form groups, in flowerbeds and as cut flowers in bouquets.
They grow in full sun or semi-shade exposures. The ideal soil should be sandy-loamy, rich in organic matter and well drained. They tolerate most soils but prefer neutral to alkaline pH.
Water frequently so that the soil is always moist but not waterlogged; reduce watering in winter. They are fairly resistant to pests but can be attacked by aphids.
They are propagated by seed sown in spring or autumn.
Godetia flower care is minimal, making it a great choice for beginner gardeners. These flowers are also known as satin flowers, and they come in a variety of colors including white, pink, yellow, and red. Godetias are annuals, which means they will last for one growing season before they need to be replanted.
To ensure your godetias have a long blooming season, plant them in an area of your garden that gets full sun. These flowers thrive in well-drained soil that is kept moist. Be sure to water your godetias regularly, especially during hot summer days. Fertilize your plants every few weeks with a general-purpose fertilizer to encourage growth.
Pinching the tips of the godetia plant will also help to promote bushier growth and more flowers. To deadheadgodetias, remove spent blooms (ones that are wilted or turning brown) by cutting them back to the nearest leaf or bud. This will encourage your plants to produce more flowers.
