In the flowerbeds of city parks, lacy leaves of ornamental cabbage and bright fragrant calendula flowers are still blossoming in splendour. Soon, in early March, mass planting of annual and perennial flower crops is beginning in the capital city.
From now on, every day in flowerbeds along the central avenues and streets, thousands of various species of ornamental flowering plants, cuttings of roses and wild roses will be planted daily, taking into account two months of bright but short Turkmen spring in order to create a continuous series of flowering, where the blossom fading of some flowers would be compensated by the bloom of others. To do this, planting patterns, combinations of plants and the quantities of seeds laid in autumn in containers with a nutrient mixture are calculated. And now, in the nurseries, greenhouses and conservatories of the capital city, countless Kalanchoe, geraniums, marigolds, petunias and decorative poppies have already been grown and are ready for transplantation. A few weeks before the planting season, landscaping work began: digging and preparing the soil, renovating tree plantations and clearing the holes from dead plants.
