Carnivorous plants There are hundreds of species of carnivorous plants found in nature, in fact carnivorous is an excessive term, perhaps it would be better to indicate them with the term insectivorous: it is in fact plants that have evolved in order to be able to catch small insects, digest them and use them the mineral salts they contain, especially nitrogen, phosphorus and potassium, or the components of common fertilizers.
Preliminary recommendations In general, it will be necessary to take care of each species in the best possible way, so that they grow well and the garden shines thanks to their beauty and decorative power. This will require practical knowledge of the best cultivation procedures.
The works of April April is the month when spring really begins to explode. The big pruning and cleaning jobs should already have been done, but there are several activities that should not be overlooked in order to get the most out of our green spaces. Usually the temperatures begin to rise and consequently the first attacks by parasites and cryptogams will occur: by intervening immediately we can stem these problems and minimize their impact, without damaging the pollinating insects.
Fertilization Fertilization is an indispensable operation to be able to make plants grow, obtain good cultivations and correct blooms. This is because by bringing both mineral and organic nutrients to the soil it is possible to provide greater nourishment to the plants.
The Witch Hazels The Witch Hazels are medium-sized shrubs that normally do not exceed 5-6 meters in height; most of the species are native to North America, with two Asian species; the peculiarity that all species share, apart from hamamelis virginiana, is the time of flowering: hamamelis bloom in the middle of winter, with the plants still completely leafless; the flowers therefore stand out on the bare wood, and often seem almost fake, since they bloom even with intense cold or snow and adverse weather conditions.
Rolled lawn Unfortunately, having a perfect lawn is very difficult, in fact, both the planting and the maintenance require different and demanding operations: the preparation of the soil, the choice of suitable seeds, the sowing carried out with a particular technique and that in any case very often it must be repeated because the wind and water easily take away the seeds, the irrigation must be carried out correctly taking into account the humidity of the soil, the climatic zone and the level of germination because it is enough to mistake the quantity of water or the intensity of the jet to ruin all the work.
