Planting and caring for badan flowers

Chagyr should be planted from the north, north-east or north-west side of rocky areas, in places that are at least slightly protected from frost. In the direct rays of the sun, bergenia feels depressed, not growing like in the shade.

For badan, the soil is optimal, consisting of one part of sod land and two parts of sand and small pebbles. If the soil is well-drained, then the plant thrives. Saxifrage does not tolerate stagnant water well. Once in full shade, the plant stops blooming.

The best time to plant is spring or early August. First, it is necessary to prepare the soil, remove weeds, clearing the land as much as possible for the future tenant.

Then dig a hole, no deeper than 30 cm, fill it with water and place the rhizome there. Lowering it, slowly cover it to the required level with earth. When soaked, its lumps displace unnecessary air. Fill in the hole only half the thickness of the rhizome.

The main thing is not to crumple or break it. The planting is lightly tamped, the top layer is mulched with sawdust or peat. You need to water only after a week.

Badan is practically not susceptible to disease. Fungal diseases due to excess moisture are extremely rare.

Treatment is carried out by trimming the affected leaves. There is no further spread of the disease. No chemicals are required for treatment.

In the spring, the saxifrage must be thoroughly cleaned of dried last year's shoots, slightly shortening the long stems. You can feed early flowers with complex mineral fertilizer before and after flowering.

If the plant lives on the outskirts of the site, then the old leaves do not need to be cleaned. Once on the surface of the soil, they prevent moisture evaporation, saving the rhizomes from overheating. In one place, Mongolian tea can grow for about ten years. Plants don't like transplants.

For normal development, they need regular and timely watering. It is necessary to ensure that there is no stagnation and excess moisture.
