Gypsophila a fluffy and easy to grow flower for you pot and garden
Gypsophila is a familiar plant in flower arrangements. It goes well with any flower and makes the bouquet soft and cute, but did you know that it is actually a very easy flower to grow? Its excellence is endorsed by the Royal Horticultural Society. It is a flower that has won the AGM Award, which the association comprehensively judges the ease of growing and utility value in the garden, and its lovely appearance that makes florets bloom fluffy is called Baby’s-breath in Europe and the United States.
Gypsophila has annuals and perennial herbs depending on the variety. We recommend the fast-growing annuals for small flower beds and potted plants, and the gypsophila, which blooms repeatedly every year for local planting in the garden.
It grows well on lean land, so you don’t need to fertilize it when planting it. However, the soil on the Mediterranean coast of origin is alkaline, and gypsophila also prefers alkaline soil. Bitter lime is a material that has the effect of making the soil alkaline, and is sold at home improvement stores, garden stores, and online. It is very vigorous and grows well, so it’s a good idea to cut it from time to time. Cut flowers for arrangement. Of course, you can arrange it with other flowers, and even gypsophila alone will create a very nice atmosphere.
Gypsophila is planted from February to April and from September to October. It can be grown even if seeds are sown in the fall. For potted plants, place in a well-ventilated sun, and for ground planting, plant in a well-drained sun. The flowering period is from May to July. While strong against dryness, it is weak against excessive humidity, so you need to be careful about stuffiness. Keep it dry and cut the flower stalks that have finished flowering from the root of the plant and grow them in a well-ventilated manner.
Why don’t you enjoy growing cute gypsophila, whose fluffy white florets are easy to arrange and go well with other flowers?
