Plant Associations

It is sad to reflect that in England so few gardens open to the public label their plants or label them so that the label is visible when that plant is in flower, so that visitors can identify; and then later locate and purchase that plant.

Few mail-order nurseries provide the detail as shown in my rose or heather galleries.

If you want to sell a product, it is best to display it. When I sold my Transit van, I removed its signage, cleaned it and took photos of the inside and outside before putting them onto an advert in Autotrader amongst more than 2000 other Transit vans - it was sold in 20 minutes.

If mail-order nurseries could put photos to the same complexity from start of the year to its end with the different foliage colours and stages of flowering on Wikimedia Commons, then the world could view the plant before buying it, and idiots like me would have valid material to work with.

I have been in the trade (until ill health forced my Sole Trader retirement in 2013) working in designing, constructing and maintaining private gardens for decades and since 2005 when this site was started, I have asked any nursery in the world to supply photos. R.V. Roger in Yorkshire allowed me to use his photos from his website in 2007 and when I got a camera to spend 5 days in July 2014 at my expense taking photos of his roses growing in his nursery field, whilst his staff was propagating them. I gave him a copy of those photos.

China Aster (Callistephus hortensis, Callistephus chinensis)

Purple with Yellow centre

Jul-Sep

24-36 (60-90)

 

 

Among the large numbers offered in seed lists it may appear, at first sight, difficult to make a choice, but for general garden use the kinds that may be most confidently recommended are the varieties of the Victora, Comet, and Ostrich Plume groups, and of these, those of the so-called blue and white colourings. The "blues" are various shades of light and dark purple, all of good quality.

Mammoth, formerly known as Vick's White, is a capital late kind of large bloom and tall habit, excellent for cutting. The type plant Callistephus hortensis, purple with yellow centre, is also good for cutting and for garden use. China Asters are sown in March in slight heat, pricked off in boxes, and planted out at the end of May in well-prepared beds. They require rich soil that has been deeply dug.

Place pots in cold frame till flower spikes show, then remove to greenhouse or window. Water moderately at first, freely afterwards. --->

Apply liquid manure when flower spikes show. After flowering gradually withold water till foliage dies, then clean off corms and sore in trays as with those grown outdoors.

Propagation: By seeds down 0.125 inch (3mm) deep in pans of light rich soil in February, in temperature 55 to 65 degess Fahrenheit (13-18 degrees Celsius); by bulbils growing at base of corms, planted 2 inches (5 cms) deep and 6 inches (15 cms) apart in sunny border outdoors, March.

P Rhizome H

Outdoor Culture: Compost, equal parts loam, leaf-mould, decayed manure and sharp sand. Position, beds or borders under shade of trees, high walls or fences for general culture; south border for early flowering. Plant single crowns 2 or 3 inches (5 or 7.5 cms) apart, with points just below surface, in September and October. Lift and replant every 4 years, always planting largest crowns by themselves. Mulch bed annualy in February with decayed manure. Apply liquid manure once a week, May to September, to beds more than a year old.

Pot Culture: Compost, equal parts good soil and leaf-mould. Plant 1 clump or a dozen single crowns in a 6 inch (15 cms) pot, well-drained, in October or November. Place inverted pot over crowns --->

and stand in cold frame or under greenhouse stage until January, then remove into heat, or allow to bloom naturally in greenhouse or window. Water only when soil needs moisture in winter, freely when growth begins.

Propagation: By seeds sown 0.25 inches (6mm) deep in light soil outdoors in March; division of crowns September or October.

Species Cultivated:
C. majalis, white, spring, 6 inches (15 cms),
var. Fortunei, larger flowers,
rosea, pink flowered.

Cut the flower and leaf together for a fresh looking and smelling arrangement. They will last 4-5 days but may fade faster in a warm room.

Plants for Cut Flowers in August

Cut Flowers All The Year from The New Illustrated Gardening Encyclopedia by Richard Sudell, printed before May 1935 for the plant names in each month, followed by details for culture and propagation. Mr. Middleton's Garden Book by Daily Express Publication, reprinted 1941 for the individual cultivar names with evergreen/deciduous, flower colour, flower month and height.

The following - in the 3 pages of Cut Flowers all the Year - ordinary garden flowers, foliage and berries (including products of the greenhouse) should be available for the decoration of the home. For convenience; they are grouped under each month. By a careful study of the different kinds, and planning ahead, amateur gardeners should be able to dispense with the need for purchasing floral decorations, a form of economy by which the appearance of the garden itself will benefit.

There are other pages on Plants which bloom in each month of the year in this website:-

The Propagation of Alpines by Lawrence D. Hills. Published in 1950 by Faber and Faber Limited describes every method of propagation for 2,500 species.

Unlike modern books published since 1980, this one states exactly what to do and is precisely what you require if you want to increase your alpines.

It is worth remembering that especially with roses that the colour of the petals of the flower may change - The following photos are of Rosa 'Lincolnshire Poacher' which I took on the same day in R.V. Roger's Nursery Field:-

Form of Rose Bush

There are 720 roses in the Rose Galleries; many of which have the above series of pictures in their respective Rose Description Page.

So one might avoid the disappointment that the 2 elephants had when their trunks were entwined instead of them each carrying their trunk using their own trunk, and your disappointment of buying a rose to discover that the colour you bought it for is only the case when it has its juvenile flowers; if you look at all the photos of the roses in the respective Rose Description Page!!!!

 

This also applies to the Foliage Colour of Heathers, where sometimes it is only the top few leaves which are not green whereas others with coloured foliage have it coloured along the full length of the foliage stem.
A minor point to remember is that the distant view of a heather will show

  • months of a foliage colour followed by
  • months of flower bud,
  • flowers and then
  • seedheads.

So do not be disappointed that the foliage colour may be hidden for many months of the year by buds, flowers or seedheads.

It still makes a fine foliage plant in floral displays.
