Briefly about leaving

Abelia needs bright lighting, but does not like direct sunlight. In the summer, the temperature should be maintained within the range of 21 to 26 degrees, and in the winter - from 11 to 15. Water the Abelia in winter a couple of days after the topsoil dries up, and in summer - immediately after drying. To maintain high humidity, it is necessary to spray Abelia on days with high temperatures.

Abelia is fertilized twice a month from early spring to early autumn. Abelia is cut in the spring (pinched), which improves branching. The dormant period is from October to February, at this time the abelia is not fed and watering is reduced, the lighting should be bright. In the spring, both transplantation and reproduction are carried out. Young specimens are transplanted annually, and more adults every two to three years. Abelia is propagated by seeds or cuttings in March-April.

Brief description of cultivation

  1. Landing... In April, seedlings are sown, and in May, seeds are sown in open soil. Sowing can be carried out before winter, but no later than 15 days before the first frost.
  2. Bloom... In the last weeks of the summer and in the fall.
  3. Illumination... Needs lots of bright sunlight.
  4. Priming... The soil should be fertile, dry, well-permeable to water, neutral or slightly acidic, loamy.
  5. Watering... Needs abundant watering.
  6. Fertilizer... Three times during the season, for this, organic matter and mineral fertilizers in liquid form are alternately used. For the first time, fertilizers are applied to the soil seven weeks after planting.
  7. Reproduction... Annual species and varieties are propagated only by seeds, and perennials - mainly by cuttings and dividing the bush.
  8. Harmful insects... Nematodes, aphids, meadow bugs.
  9. Diseases... Gray rot, rust, septoria, powdery mildew, bacterial root cancer.


Diseases and pests

Unfortunately, the shrub is also susceptible to disease. The most severe damage is caused by aphids, as a result of which the leaves become covered with sugary secretions and begin to turn black.

In this case, it is necessary to mechanically remove the pests, clean the abelia from damaged leaves, and then treat the plant with preparations containing permethrin.

If necessary, the treatment can be repeated after a while. Proper care and care of the shrub will allow you to enjoy its pleasant aroma and abundant flowering for a long time.


Transplant and substrate

For abelia, a universal balanced substrate is best suited. It is better to choose a soil mixture from among special substrates for flowering crops. When the soil is mixed independently, sand, peat, turf and humus soil are combined in equal parts. The optimum reaction of the soil is 5.5-6.0 pH.

The transplant of this shrub is carried out as needed, and not annually, allowing the roots to fully master the substrate. Abelia can be transplanted throughout the spring, carefully transferring it while preserving the main earthen coma.

After the Abelia transplant, you need to give time to adapt. Watering is carried out carefully, controlling the state of the substrate. And feeding is resumed only after two or even three months.

Cultivation and reproduction

The conditions of central Russia are suitable for growing only Korean Abelia. It grows both in the sun and withstands partial shade. For good growth, it needs light, fertile soil, without stagnant water. A shrub is planted in the spring, placing it 1.5-2 m apart. During dry periods, moderate moisture is required. It winters normally and blooms annually. Sanitary pruning of damaged shoots is carried out in the spring, and crown rejuvenation - at the end of summer, after pruning, the bush begins to branch more intensively. Summer feeding with organic and mineral fertilizers with microelements is very favorable. It is not affected by pests and diseases; in some years, aphids may appear on the leaves. Applied for landscape planting in groups and singly.

Abelia is propagated by seeds, green and lignified cuttings. Produces numerous root suckers. Rooting rate of cuttings - 15%. Seeds are sown in spring, their germination lasts 1-2 months. Seedlings bloom in the 3rd year.
