You can not miss summer flowers in the Landhausgarten! Too beautiful are their colors and abundance of flowers - and they are so diverse that you can hardly decide. So there are usually a few more pots when geraniums, magic bells, Elfenspiegel, snowflake flower and lobelia fill the cart.
For the start of the flowering season, there are still more than the well-known classics. The usually blue-flowered fan-flower varieties surprise with white and pink flower colors, snowflake flowers also show in blue. Rosebloom geraniums, globe amaranth, farm orchid and pretty angel face are waiting to be discovered. Natural combinations with rural flair are in fashion! You will also find potted perennials among the many annuals: jewelry baskets that are not too big for pots at half a meter in height, or fragrant cloves that conjure up the country house atmosphere on the terrace. And some plants such as the genuine toadflax or the aromatic mountain mint (Calamintha nepeta) excite as a swarmed bee pasture.
The vessels that you want to plant need not be new. Just when you have brought far too many flowers home again, the talent for improvisation is in demand. Then drain holes are drilled in the zinc pan and the large wicker basket is lined with foil for planting. For parsley, sage and chives, pick pots from the shed and arrange them into a mobile herb garden.
For planting you should use high-quality potting soil and for all endemic plants it is best to mix in one portion of slow-release fertilizer. Very important is a functioning water drainage at the vessels to avoid waterlogging. The best way to get the best out of your choice of location is to buy the right flower for the summer.
