All plants can benefit from foliar feeding through the leaves as it improves the amount and yield of fruits and vegetables and improves the performance of flowering plants. Feeding newly planted seedlings on a weekly basis, as soon as the leaves have regained their firmness, can bring about a significant change in continuous growth. The roots of poor, highly porous, sandy, or dense, moist clay plants cannot easily absorb nutrients, so regular leaf feeding can be helpful. Clematis can now be grown from cuttings until the end of summer. Cuttings about 10-15 cm long are taken from new wood that does not bend easily. Then make a three-centimeter upward cut at the base of the cut (it doesn’t matter where the basic cut is made, as the clematis form intermodal roots, that is, between the buds), and then insert the depth of the incision by placing one of the knots in the sand. and a mixture of peat. Most clematis can be easily propagated by this method. The flowers of the drought-tolerant Zephyranthes candida are similar to saffron and thrive best in full sun or half shade and thrive on clayey, sandy, or stony soils. However, to retain moisture, a well-destroyed organic soil cover is required. These South American natives easily take root and show up in late summer and early fall, especially after rain, to create a rug made of white, star-shaped flowers, hence the common name rain lily. It is a showy, bulbous perennial rock garden, garden beds or as a container plant. Sacred bamboo, Nandina domestica, is an evergreen shrub that requires good, low-maintenance, scarlet-bronze-toned foliage that illuminates hot, dry spots in the garden. Ideal for containers and the perfect choice for a low border without clips. Hydrangeas with huge summer flower heads and large leaves need abundant watering to look their best on these hot days. Cistus or rock rose is an undemanding, bushy little shrub that feels good in our harsh summers and dry-drying winds, and feels good in a sunny spot with well-drained soil. The flowers are available in a variety of vibrant colors, including different shades of pink, white, and yellow, and usually last only one day, but are so plentiful that a new batch opens in sunny weather. They can be easily propagated from softwood cuttings taken in the sand-peat mixture taken in the autumn.
