Abutilon (Latin Abutilon) - "shade-giving" or indoor maple is named so for the similarity of its leaves with maple leaves. It is also called the “rope-man” because in India the fibrous mass of abutilones is used to make burlap and ropes. Abutilon Mill (genus of abutilones) has about 100 species of shrubs of the Malvaceae family in tropical and subtropical zones of the Earth.

Many people know what deciduous trees are, but not everyone knows which ones are suitable for growing in the garden. The most common types of deciduous trees, their names, photos and descriptions will help you replenish your knowledge base.
About 60,065 tree species are known. According to the type of leaves, they are divided into deciduous and coniferous.
Interesting facts: 1. The tallest trees of the sequoia species, their height can be up to 115.55 m. 2. Baobab is the thickest tree in the world - it is 15.9 m in diameter. 3. Spruce growing in the mountains in the west of Sweden, considered the oldest tree in the world. She is about 9550 years old.
Each person, having a personal plot around a country house or summer cottage, dreams of making his garden original and unique. With the help of landscape design, unique gardens are created, in which ornamental shrubs and trees play an important role.
Growing and caring for ornamental plants requires a lot of work, but today we will enjoy their splendor and present the most beautiful trees for the garden. Below you will see decorative trees, their photos and names, which are considered one of the most beautiful and easy to care for gardeners.
Muraya paniculata, beloved by many, is valued for the delicate aroma of flowers blooming throughout the warm season and for the scattering of red berries that adorn the plant in this way.
They are unlikely to surprise in taste, but they are useful for heart diseases, along with flowers and leaves, they are used in folk medicine.

Growing passionflower blue, over time I realized what the plant needs for annual flowering.
In the spring-summer period, I take the liana into the garden so that it is in direct sunlight for at least 3-4 hours a day. It is advisable to keep passionflower in the room by the south window, but here you need a constant flow of fresh air. For the winter I put the liana in the glazed loggia of the south side, where the temperature at night is + 10-15 degrees, in the cold - at least +7 degrees.
During the period of active growth, I water the plant abundantly as the soil dries up, avoiding stagnation of moisture. In winter, I reduce watering, but I do not let the substrate dry out. Passionflower loves high humidity, so in the warm season I put the pot with the plant on a tray with wet pebbles and spray the leaves from a fine spray. In winter, there is a container with water next to the plant.
CUTTING - MANDATORY
I prune the passionflower in early spring, shortening the central stem to 15 cm (from the surface of the soil) and the lateral branches - to 5-8 cm. Pruning inhibits growth, makes the plant more lush, and stimulates flowering.
Peduncles appear on young shoots.
To support the vines, I set a circle of thick wire in the pot.
In the spring, with the beginning of active growth, I feed the plant with superphosphate (according to the instructions). After 7 days I spray "Zircon" (growth and flowering regulator) - 1 ml per liter of water, after 2 days and another day - a drop per 100 ml. Then, before sending the vines to the house, I apply fertilizers for flowering plants - once every 10 days.
Gardeners ask themselves every year - when is it better to plant fruit trees and berry bushes, fall or spring. Each season has its own advantages and disadvantages.
Let's consider in detail why is it better to plant trees in autumn, when and how to land at your summer cottage.
All varieties of vines require support. They need to crawl up to feel comfortable. Most species are evergreen, perennial cropsthat do not differ in exacting care. In winter, the stems are almost bare.
For indoor breeding, the latter representatives are more often chosen, since you can always give them bizarre shapes. A support, a stand will help in this. But the design will only be beautiful if the flower is properly looked after.
A common mistake when breeding vines at home is to expose them to direct sunlight. They have a detrimental effect on the development and condition of the plant, often leaving burns on the foliage. Better to put the flower in the shade... But this does not apply to cissus, ceropegia, scindapsus, syngonium.
The culture must be provided with a constant supply of fresh air. Airing will help prolong flowering... For winter, the recommended temperature is not lower than 15 degrees... During the growing season, the optimal regime is 20-25 ° C.
An important part of grooming is watering. The procedure is carried out in the evening.... In no case is waterlogging allowed. You can check the condition of the soil on the top layer. Water the vines with settled water at room temperature.
Vines need daily hydration. Not only watering is used, but also spraying with a spray bottle. It is necessary 1-2 times a week to wipe the foliage from dust with a damp cotton swabso that the plant can breathe freely.
The soil type is chosen fertile, light, with a neutral reaction. For some types of vines, a slightly acidic environment is allowed.... Loosening is carried out with sticks. This helps to increase the nitrogen flow to the root system.
The introduction of fertilizers takes place as needed. You can use store-bought mixtures. But it is better to make your own special soil preparation. For this, humus, sod and leafy soil are combined in equal proportions.
As a top dressing, organic substances are suitable - mullein (proportions 1 to 10 with water) or mineral organic matter.
The transplant procedure is similar to transplanting. A liana is pulled into a tub of larger volume together with the ground, then sprinkled with soil to the desired level... This must be done carefully to prevent injury to the plant.
Lianas need a skeleton to help shape them. Wall and pot supports can be used. The crown is often self-forming. If this does not happen, then the plucking procedure is carried out.
For intensive growth of side shoots, lianas need pruning and entwining around the support. Fixation takes place with clothespins. Unnecessary tendrils of vines are removed immediately, as the plant will change the direction of growth. Old shoots are cut in half. This helps you branch better.
The reproduction process takes place with the help of an apical cutting. It is cut from an adult plant. Since most of the representatives of the liana family are owners of an aerial root system, planting in the ground is carried out immediately after cutting.
A soil mixture of three components is made for a young plant, which improves rooting. There is also a method for germinating vines with seeds, but this option is extremely rare. At home, only 50% of the seed is effective.
All representatives of climbing plants are the best means of decorating a room. You can use vines to decorate gazebos, facades. You need to choose species that will calmly tolerate drought, increased humidity and direct sunlight.
