What are runners and stolons?


The Content Of The Article:

As stolons, or Stolonen (singular: Stolo), appendages of plants are referred to, which after they have been separated, can independently continue to exist. Offshoots are for reproduction. Some foothills develop above ground, while others develop underground. Some extensions creep under or over the earth, other extensions are elongated side shoots emanating from the stem base, or from the leaf rosette. Some foothills also start from the root neck.
Which plants form foothills?

  • Fence winds and couch grass - both weeds that make it difficult to banish them from the garden through the foothills. The smallest root remnant produces a new plant.
  • Mint - actually very popular in the garden until it appears everywhere and can no longer be limited.
  • Goldfelberich - grateful and perennial garden plant, also resistant to snails, but spreads rapidly and grows into everything that is planted around it
  • Snow Leopard - similar to Goldfelberich
  • Goldenrod - not all species are strong foothills, but numerous
  • Bamboo - the classic among the usurers. However, you have to differentiate between them. There are horst-forming (Fargesia and Borinda) and stoloniferous species (Phyllostachys). Fargesia does not drive foothills, is completely safe.
  • Some ferns - form short foothills and multiply carpet-like throughout the garden.
  • Tansy; Sempervivum, thyme; Valerian; Lovage, shade green,
  • Ranunculus shrub - is often used as a flower hedge, but spreads quickly
  • Alba roses - these white peasant roses (also pastel colors) are quite old and smell very good. They tend to form foothills.
If the plants proliferate too much by foothills
When the plants spread throughout the garden, good advice is often expensive. For some it will be really bad. Removing bamboo is a show of strength and often unsuccessful. If a bit of root remains somewhere, it drives a new plant out of it. Here only a root barrier helps. This must be introduced right at the plantation and be very stable. The spurs of bamboo pierce even the thickest pond sheet. Since you can not save the wrong end and should buy a proper rhizome barrier. Mint also has the property to spread surface fire. That's why they should be cultivated in pots and jars right away. Anyone who loves order in the garden and does not want to leave pots standing around can put them in their beds and dig them in. This way, the foothills can be kept within limits.

What are spurs for?
Runners serve - however and wherever they grow - the vegetative, ie the asexual propagation of a plant. Streamers are a type of blast theory. They have so-called Nodien.At these roots, but also shoots can develop, which grow upright.
The connecting sprouts die off afterwards. For example, the strawberry has over foothills. And it should be mentioned that the strawberries of the month do not form an offshoot. In the case of the strawberries of the month strawberries have to be taken from the seed year after year. In the spring these are then planted out as young plants.
The young plants of garden strawberries, on the other hand, are pulled from foothills. If plants have too few offshoots, some of the mother plants will certainly appear in the summer months. From these can then easily pull new plants.
Basically, one should take off streamers only from really strong plant specimens. You should not lose more than two, or at most three shoots of each parent plant. The other extensions are simply cut off.
You can also cut spurs in September by digging up the plant. From foothills but can also form so-called tubers, that is thickening. An example of this is the potato.
