How to Transplant Flowers

Who does not adore color and splendor? Well, we all do. Infact to put it right, flowers are everybody’s first love. At least, they are mine!

But then again as beautiful as they are, maintaining them is a scrupulous job. But come on, every pretty thing calls for attention.

Transplanting blooms is a task one should carry out every now and then, particularly if you are retaining a flower garden. Different flowering plants entail transplant for dissimilar explanations. It is not as difficult a job as most people regard it as. Below we provide you with a handful of tips to ease your effort.

The very important thing to keep in mind is the correct time to transplant your flowers. The highly suggested time of year is late spring and autumn. During this time of the year the soil is awfully soft and damp and thus very yielding. The pliable texture of the soil would also make your work easy. But in case you live in some part of the world where all the four seasons are not experienced then you can transplant your flowers any time in the year. Mind you, spring and autumn are not limitations of instant but just recommended periods for handsome growth.

Another essential aspect to bring into account while transplanting, is to keep knowledge about your plant’s augmentation sequence. This would avoid your plants from suffering a transplant shock. A transplant shock may cause your plant to wilt, wither or in worst cases, die.

Before you begin with transplanting prepare a flower pot for your flowers. At the bottom of the pot make an opening big enough to hold the root ball. Or if you wish to transplant in your garden then dig a patch deep enough that the roots find a flexible place to stretch and grow.

Once you have the pot or the patch ready begin with plowing up the flowers you would like to transplant. Perform this very watchfully, and fumble about its roots so you are certain to keep the root globe unharmed. Raise the plant lightly and place it in its new pot immediately. Make sure you do not leave them, particularly their roots for an extended period of time, in the open air. Load the plant with sufficient earth to wrap its roots. Add in some manure or cow dung to help give your plant a healthy growth. Watch out for any air spaces and also for the fact that you do not envelop the majority of the shoot.

Give your plant time and care. If you see a few leaves or flowers withering out then cut them off the plant. This would maintain the well growth of your plant. Water your plant regularly but make sure not to flood the soil. Excess of everything is bad.

To cut a long story short, it is always sensible to undergo your garden a transplant once or twice a year provided of course that your garden does needs a transplant. Unreasonable removing and relocating of plants is never encouraged. As for one, by doing this you kill a life, secondly it blemishes your soil quality as well.
