Autumn riot of color in MAYETOK

September favorites are chrysanthemum, aster, hortensia, phlox, delphinium and astilbe. Plants can be bought in pots and planted in the ground in early autumn. These perennials, as a rule, easily face the winter. Small cold only harden them. But if the frost increases, experienced gardeners cover the flower beds with light natural materials - dry foliage or wood chips.

Combination Rules:

Landscape designers draw a sketch of the future flower garden on paper, guided by the three main rules.

Coloristics. Both facelessness and variegation should be avoided. Green, dark blue, purple or lilac is preferred as a backdrop. Red, yellow, orange and pink are dominant shades. A neutral color - white, pale yellow and light blue – will dilute contrasting composition.

LocationLow-growing or high, weaving or adjacent to the soil - the location of the flower depends on the characteristics of the plant. For example, high delphiniums should not overshadow stunted asters, the tallest are placed in the center, and little ones - closer to the edge. An ideal place for high plants - along the fence. Weaving profitable complement pergolas and gazebos.

Planting density. Sometimes gardeners place the  plants too thickly, fearing that the flowerbed will look empty. As a result, such a close neighborhood does not allow flowers to develop. Therefore, it is better to use the already proven optimal planting rates per 1 m2: undersized - 7-11; compact and medium - 5-7; voluminous and high - 1-3.
