The Content Of The Article:
Spring bloomers are usually the first plants that stretch their flowers towards the sun. They stand out because nature has not awakened otherwise. As soon as the trees start to shoot their leaves, the flowering time of the early flowering plants usually comes to an end.
Early flowering plants have special storage organs (tubers, bulbs or ground sprouts) from which they draw their energy for early flowering.
A distinction is made between annual and perennial plants and bulbous plants. Early flowering plants grow rapidly, are very nutrient-demanding and are sensitive to dehydration.
