Babiana
"Baboon Root has stiff hairy leaves and dense spikes of funnel-shaped flowers, many of them sweetly scented, and all of them brilliantly coloured. Being tender, their culture in the UK should only be attempted out of doors in the warmest parts of the country. (Plant against South-facing House Wall in Southern England where temperatures do not go below -5 degrees Centigrade. Set 6 inches (15 cms) deep in average and sandy soils, a little shallower in heavy clay - put 2 inches (5 cms) of sand surrounding bulb to prevent rotting - soils, 6 inches (15 cms) apart. Mulch with 3 inches (7.5 cms) of organic compost to conserve moisture in the summer, remove mulch during autumn and winter. - from R.V. Roger).
For Indoor Culture they should be potted in October or November in well-drained pots. Over the drainage hole of each pot place an inverted crock, next some rough coca-nut fibre, then a layer of thoroughly decayed cow manure, and over that a compost consisting of turfy loam, peat, and leaf-mould in equal quantities and a plentiul supply of silver sand. A 5-inch (12.5 cm) pot is the best size to use and will accomodate 6 corms. A winter temperature of from 40-50F (4-10C) suits them in the greenhouse.Do not water until growth commences and keep the plants near the glass until they are ready to transfer to the conservatory. The plants flower in May and June, and as soon as the foliage commences to die all watering must cease. May be increased by offsets." from The culture of bulbs, bulbous plants and tubers made plain by Sir J.L. Cotter. Published by Hutchinson & Co.

"Water should be sparingly given until the growth has well advanced, when a little help from weak liquid manure is beneficial if given at every other watering. Babianas may be grown from year, if after flowering the pots are kept in a warm greenhouse and the plants regularly fed until the foliage begins to turn yellow, when water must be gradually decreased, until the leaves wither, when it must be entirely withheld." from Black's Gardening Dictionary. Edited by E.T. Ellis, F.R.H.S. Second edition. Published by A. & C. Black Ltd. in 1928.

Plant against South-facing House Wall in Southern England where temperatures do not go below -5 degrees Centigrade. Mulch with 3 inches (7.5 cms) of organic compost to conserve moisture in the summer.

Set 6 inches (15 cms) deep in average and sandy soils, a little shallower in heavy clay - put 2 inches (5 cms) of sand surrounding bulb to prevent rotting - soils, 6 inches (15 cms) apart. Leave undisturbed for years.

Remove mulch during autumn and winter.

Biarum
"Being native to the Mediterrranean area, the plants are found in rocky places where there is an accumulation of soil. They need protection below 25 F (-4C). Biarum tubers are found just below the surface of the soil. The spathes, which appear before the leaves, are distinctive in that they are stemless and are produced at or just below ground level. The flowers on the spadix are maroon or dark purple. The majority of the species are unpleasant to smell.
Culture - They should be grown in moderately good soil in areas with perect drainage and full sun. Little or no moisture is needed during the summer months, winter moisture is essential. The plants must be allowed to be warm and dry during the summer for them to flower well. TAhey should be planted with the tubers just below the surface of the soil - a depth of about 2 inches (5 cms) is sufficient. Spacing can be 4-6 inches (10-15 cms) apart.Once established they should go undisturbed. Feeding is not necessary. If frost is likely, then mulch with 3 inches (7.5 cm) of fallen leaves during the winter before removing that mulch in April.
Propagation - The tubers can be lifted and divided, which is best done in the summer while the plants are dormant.
These small plants should be considered only for a rock garden, and then planted close to the path so they can be appreciated. They do not make suitable container plants, and, while they can be grown in a warm, sunny border, they look their best in locations that duplicate their natural habitat - rocky, sandy locations in full sun." from Bulbs Voloume I, A-H by John E. Bryan. Published by Christopher Helm (Publishers) Ltd in 1989. ISBN 0-88192-101-7

"Soils vary enormously in characteristics, but the size of the particles that make up a soil defines its gardening characteristics:

  • Clay: less than 0.002mm
  • Silt: 0.002-0.05mm
  • Sand: 0.05-2mm
  • Stones: bigger than 2mm in size
  • Chalky soils also contain calcium carbonate or lime

The dominating particle size gives soil its characteristics and because the tiny clay particles have a huge surface area for a given volume of clay they dominate the other particles:

Clay soils have over 25 percent clay. Also known as heavy soils, these are potentially fertile as they hold nutrients bound to the clay minerals in the soil. But they also hold a high proportion of water due to the capillary attraction of the tiny spaces between the numerous clay particles. They drain slowly and take longer to warm up in spring than sandy soils. Clay soils are easily compacted when trodden on while wet and they bake hard in summer, often cracking noticeably.

Sandy soils have high proportion of sand and little clay. Also known as light soils, these soils drain quickly after rain or watering, are easy to cultivate and work. They warm up more quickly in spring than clay soils. But on the downside, they dry out quickly and are low in plant nutrients, which are quickly washed out by rain. Sandy soils are often very acidic.

Silt soils, comprised mainly of intermediate sized particles, are fertile, fairly well drained and hold more moisture than sandy soils, but are easily compacted

Loams are comprised of a mixture of clay, sand and silt that avoid the extremes of clay or sandy soils and are fertile, well-drained and easily worked. They can be clay-loam or sandy-loam depending on their predominant composition and cultivation characteristics.

Peat soils are mainly organic matter and are usually very fertile and hold much moisture. They are seldom found in gardens.

Chalky or lime-rich soils may be light or heavy but are largely made up of calcium carbonate and are very alkaline." from Royal Horticultural Society

Discs and Florets Flower Elaborated Shape

 

argyranthemumflocmadeirasantana1Disc - Many daisies are easy to grow and very free-flowering. The typical colour contrast between the disc and the surrounding rays creates a lively effect (Argyranthemum 'Maderia Santana'). Many daisies are excellent cut flowers.

Floret - helianthusfloannuus1Floret is a small or reduced flower, especially 1 of a cluster in a composite flower - such as the florets of a sunflower (The very small flowers in a ring inside the yellow petals of Helianthus annuus). It is also any of the tight, branched clusters of flower buds that together form a head of cauliflower or broccoli.

7. When I do not have my own or ones from mail-order nursery photos , then from March 2016, if you want to start from the uppermost design levels through to your choice of cultivated and wildflower plants to change your Plant Selection Process then use the following galleries:-

  • Create and input all plants known by Amateur Gardening inserted into their Sanders' Encyclopaedia from their edition published in 1960 (originally published by them in 1895) into these
    • Stage 1 - Garden Style Index Gallery,
      then
    • Stage 2 - Infill Plants Index Gallery being the only gallery from these 7 with photos (from Wikimedia Commons) ,
      then
    • Stage 3 - All Plants Index Gallery with each plant species in its own Plant Type Page followed by choice from Stage 4a, 4b, 4c and/or 4d REMEMBERING THE CONSTRAINTS ON THE SELECTION FROM THE CHOICES MADE IN STAGES 1 AND 2
    • Stage 4a - 12 Bloom Colours per Month Index Gallery,
    • Stage 4b - 12 Foliage Colours per Month Index Gallery with
    • Stage 4c - Cultivation, Position, Use Index Gallery and
    • Stage 4d - Shape, Form Index Gallery
    • Unfortunately, if you want to have 100's of choices on selection of plants from 1000's of 1200 pixels wide by up to 16,300 pixels in length webpages, which you can jump to from almost any of the pages in these 7 galleries above, you have to put up with those links to those choices being on
      • the left topic menu table,
      • the header of the middle data table and on
      • the page/index menu table on the right of every page of those galleries.

Functional combinations in the border from the International Flower Bulb Centre in Holland:-

"Here is a list of the perennials shown by research to be the best plants to accompany various flower bulbs. The flower bulbs were tested over a period of years in several perennial borders that had been established for at least three years.

In combination with hyacinths:

In combination with tulips:

In combination with narcissi:

For narcissi, the choice was difficult to make. The list contains only some of the perennials that are very suitable for combining with narcissi. In other words, narcissi can easily compete with perennials.

In combination with specialty bulbs:
