My Little Plant Nursery

My garden has become larger because another plot has been added next to the old garden. I am pleased to have more place for plants, and planning a new garden, which should be comfortable, clean and well maintained.
As I need more plants for new plot, I decided to create my own plant nursery. This spring to do this, I took small pots with good soil and cut a lot of cuttings of decorative bushes, roses, evergreens, perennials.

Thuja Danica

Physocarpus opulifolius Lutea

Since I did not have much experience in growing young plants, I thought that all new cuttings would give me new plants, but it turned out that only a few of them rooted and grew leaves. Now you can see some of them on the garden shelves.

Thujas Occidentalis and Golden globe

Delphinium

Physocarpus opulifolius Diablo

Initially, the cuttings of roses were placed in the greenhouse, then when I decided that they were rooted, I moved the pots outdoors. Some new roses look good, others seem sick. The problem is that it is said that only young stems can be used for rooting. Now young and last year's rose stems are growing in pots.

Rose Austin

Rose Floribunda

Rose Fairy

I have the climbing rose Flammentanz and want to do some cutting to root and plant them in the new plot. Now it's so pretty, blooms with big red flowers.


Have you ever grown your own plants? What is your experience?

    1. I try to root roses and to have my own ones, to save money Elisabeth. To root them you need to cut their young stems in spring. Good luck!

  5. Your plants looks very vell, Nadezda! I have never tried to make my own roses before, but now I will try it.
    I have made plants of Physocarpus before, and they grow very well. I have also divided many hosta, and they grow like grass here.
    Flammentanz is a very hardy rose, and I had it in my old garden. I remember it became very big :)

    1. I love Flammentanz rose as well Marit. Now I have some young roses and will plant them in new space. You're right Physocarpus is rooted well, want to make a fence of it.

    Buen jardín Nadezda. Cuídate.

    1. Hola, Laura
      Me tomó un tiempo descubrir lo que llamas Periquitos, esto es Antirrhinum. me gusta esta flor, no es perenne aqui and tuve que sembrarlas cada primavera. De verdad es realmente muy hermosa.
      Feliz sabado.

  7. Los rosales se ven muy bien y lo demás también. Yo suelo plantar de todo cactus, geranios, rosales y mucho más. Un abrazo Nadezda.

    1. Teresa, creo que el geranio (pelargonium) se propaga fácilmente, me gusta hacerlo. Las rosas son más malhumoradas en nuestro clima. Te deseo éxito en el cultivo de nuevas plantas.

  8. Wow, Nadezda, your nursery looks indeed a great success! Such beautiful plants!
    I think we have spoken about this before: I have grown for example Cornus, Ribes and some hardy roses from cuttings. I have tried to reproduce roses also this year, the very dry June meant lots of carrying water to them.
    My seed sowing hasn't been so successful. The best results came with lavender, the plants are still alive after very strange winters. :)
    Thank you for your comment today. No, I didn't know there's a Russian "Sherlock Holmes" series! I googled it and it looked very good.
    Why didn't you like all episodes of (Cumberbatch) "Sherlock"? I didn't like all of them either. :)

    1. I remember you wrote about growing shrubs and hardy roses, Sarah. In fact, breeding your own is much cheaper than buying new ones. I have never sown lavender - I am afraid that this is not hardy to our winter.
      I think Mr. Doyle wrote his Sherlock with a different character, habits and behavior than Cumberbatch plays in the new series.

  10. It's nice to see your nursery. My mother also likes gardening, including pomegranate trees and asoka.

    Have a good day.

  11. Dear Nadezda!
    It's great that you enlarged your garden. I guess how beautiful you will take care of this place.
    I have little experience in growing plants from seeds. Only vegetables and lupins.
    Hugs and warm greetings.

  14. More garden space, how fabulous. Congratulations on the success of your nursery. My favourite method of increasing my plants is by division, boring, but never fails.

    1. More space and more plants, you're right Alistair.
      I do love divide plants, especially hostas, bulbs, but I can't divide rose or rhododendron. Therefore I need to do cuttings and to root them. Sure your experience is successful.
