The soil for growing flowers is very important, so I would like to share the method with you today.

The soil for growing flowers should be rich in organic matter and have good water permeability and air permeability. What kind of soil to grow flowers should be determined according to the types of flowers and flowers in different stages of growth and development, and different requirements for the soil.

Planting flowers in the courtyard, in addition to sandy soil, heavy clay soil is not suitable, generally well drained loam, clay loam can grow flowers, and can make flowers and trees grow well.

Potted flowers, due to limited growth in the flowerpot, the capacity of the pot soil is limited, which requires rich nutrients in the soil and good soil performance, so as to meet the needs of flower growth. The soil that meets these requirements is less in nature and more difficult to find, so the soil of potted flowers should be prepared artificially. The artificially prepared culture soil is soft, not easy to dry, rich in organic matter and good drainage, which is suitable for the requirements of different growth periods of flowers.

The cultivation of flowers is made of rotten leaf soil, garden soil, mountain soil, pond mud, rice chaff ash, yellow sand, barnyard manure and bone powder in a certain proportion.

Rotten leaf soil: put fallen leaves, withered grass, straw, etc., in the pit, one layer of leaves, one layer of soil, sprinkle some feces, accumulate several layers repeatedly, cover the top with 10 cm thick soil, after more than half a year of fermentation rot, soil and fertilizer fusion, sieving can be used.

Stable manure soil: pig and cow manure, chicken and duck manure, etc., mixed with garden soil and weeds, piled up and watered thoroughly. The compost is sealed with dilute soil to make it fully fermented and mature. After it is mature, the compost is spread out and dried. After screening, the compost is stored.

Mountain soil: it is a natural rotten leaf soil, which is formed by the natural accumulation of fallen leaves of trees in mountainous areas. it is rich in humus, as long as it is mixed with a small amount of garden soil and thin human feces and urine, stacked for a period of time, and can be used after it is fully mature.

Pond mud: dig up the sludge from the river pond, make a cake, dry it and store it for use. When used, it can be broken into particles of different sizes, such as soybeans or broad beans. Pond mud has the advantages of high fertilizer content and good drainage performance.

Garden soil: it is the mature loam on the surface of vegetable garden, orchard and bamboo orchard. It is loose, fertile, permeable and suitable for the growth of most flowers.

Bone meal: a commercial fertilizer made from animal bones. Family flower cultivation can be made from broken bones or poultry hoof horns and feathers, which contain a lot of phosphate fertilizer.

According to the different types of flowers and their different requirements for soil in different growth periods, the formulations of cultivated soil are roughly as follows:

(1) soil for sowing and seedling: 2 parts of rotten leaf soil, 1 part of garden soil, 1 part of rice chaff ash, a little barnyard manure.

(2) greenhouse grass and flower soil: 3 rotten leaf soil, 1 garden soil, 1 rice chaff ash, a small amount of barnyard manure, river sand, and a little bone powder.

(3) greenhouse woody flower soil: 1 rotten leaf soil, 1 same soil, a little river sand, a little rice chaff ash, a little barnyard manure, a little bone powder.

(4) cutting soil: because cuttings do not need nutrients before rooting, yellow sand can be used, and vermiculite or perlite can be used as cutting substrate if possible.

(5) pulpy plant soil: 1 part of river sand and 1 part of garden soil.

Before using the culture soil, it is necessary to screen and remove impurities, and at the same time add a small amount of insecticidal pesticides to eliminate eggs and germs.

So much for sharing with you. I hope this article will be helpful to you. Good luck.
