When it comes to planting lobelia flowers, you have to follow rules for planting. The rules of the game are easy and it will also save you a lot of effort and frustration in the future. For one thing, always remember that planting should be done six to eight weeks before the wet season starts. This is because most plants, especially the lobelia ones, do not go dormant during this time. If you plant them just before this time, there are high chances that they will not survive.
Before any planting takes place, it is essential to prepare the soil. Preparing the soil for flower cultivation involves making sure that it is completely dry. You can use a sprinkler system to completely remove all traces of moisture. Once this has been done, the soil is ready for planting.
Before any flower plants can even begin to take root in the soil, it is important that you remember one basic rule: you need to divide the flowering plants into two groups. One group needs to be planted right after the last frost. The other group should be planted just ahead of the flowering buds. This division should be made in such a way that the young plants are able to absorb as much light as possible.
The flowers that bloom during spring must be placed in the north part of the garden, while those that bloom during the summer need to be sown in the south. This is because the summer flowers are the biggest among the flowering plants. Remember too that you have to prune these plants regularly so that they can grow big and strong. Placing the flowering plants along the pathway and in the front garden will allow you to easily see the progress of the plants.
The next step is to mix in some compost, peat moss or decomposed stone into the soil. These three elements are used for two reasons. They allow the growth of healthy root systems, which in turn improves the soil’s water-holding capacity. They also improve the texture of the flower seedlings. Once this mixture has been mixed in the soil, it should be watered just to wet the seedlings and let them stand in the water for a few minutes.
The next thing that you have to do is to plant both the lobelia and the orchid varieties in groups of twelve. It will be better if you place them in groups of four but if only three are available in the store, then placing them in groups of three makes sense. Just make sure that they are planted in their respective areas. When these flower seeds are planted in the soil, you should also have a good mulch or a layer of organic material under the flower seeds.
In order for your plants to grow to their maximum height, you should have at least one good tree or shrub in your garden with large branches reaching up to six feet in height. The branches of the trees and shrubs will serve as support for the lobelia and orchids when they grow to be several feet high. This should be complemented by regular watering to keep the roots of the flowers from drying out.
The other important rule that you have to follow is to plant the lobelia and orchids in the winter. The reason why this is so important is because the growth of these plants is very slow during the summer months. They will simply bloom during the dry months before they shed their leaves. It is essential to have fresh Lobelia and orchids in your flower garden to ensure beautiful flowers all year round.
