They are unpretentious, the number of varieties is huge, and the best visual effect is achieved by mixing them on one flowerbed.

You need to start with primroses: primroses, irises, lilies of the valley. Carefully dig the plant out of the ground, divide the rhizome in the place where the rosettes with roots have formed, then plant it in a previously prepared hole, where previously add mineral fertilizers and humus. Phlox, lily, delphinium, echinacea and many other plants can be divided and rooted in the same way. It is important to remember that each separated flower must have at least 3 buds and its own root part. This will be enough for the plants to take root during the autumn months and be able to successfully overwinter. The best planting depth of flowers is 25-30 cm, and only peonies like to go deep into the ground up to half a meter. It is necessary to divide and transplant peonies in the second half of August, but this procedure should be carried out once every 7-10 years. Do not forget to shorten the old shoots by about a third. In August, lilies are divided and transplanted, and seedlings of two-year-old flowers are rooted: pansies, Turkish carnations, daisies. If you love your flower garden and want to keep it in the best possible condition, do not forget to do some treatments each year in August.
