  • Dec 27, 2019

Recently, horticultural exhibitions and presentations began to appear more and more foreign instruments and devices. Some of them are of special value, and some are really worth attention.

In this collection I have collected interesting adaptations that I was lucky enough to see in the stores and at exhibitions on the eve of the summer season. I select only what might need me the most, but it does not cost a lot of money.

1. Mesh to protect the beds from birds

Any gardener knows that the best defense beds from birds and animals - a small stack. Unlike other traditional methods (shiny objects, rattles, grass, etc.), cover ensures the safety of the crop. However, the net curtain has one serious drawback, because of which he was not in a hurry to use the majority of farmers. Grid made it caring for plants. Weeding, fertilizing, garter and other suburban procedures are becoming a real problem.

However, more recently, in horticultural stores began to appear protective mesh frame and the large windows. The holes are arranged on the side of the canopy and secured by lightning. They allow the crop to be treated and to monitor the purity of the soil easily.

The open grid is not to shower in the greenhouse, and down to earth. This eliminates damage to plants at a deflection structure.

2. Greenhouse film with windows zip

A small greenhouse film can be made with your own hands, and you can buy a ready in gardening shop. Overpaid in the second case, a substantial, so I would advise to look for design with lockable windows. These are increasingly appearing in large gardening stores.

This design makes it possible to completely abandon the daily tilting and zakidyvaniya film. No more searching for stones, sticks and logs, to press the greenhouse wall.

Choosing such a hotbed sure to pay attention to lightning. It should be well sewn and have two dogs. This ensures durability of the product.

This greenhouse film can be used in tandem with a protective grid which I wrote above.

3. Protection of fruit trees from birds

As I wrote earlier, the best protection from birds - it is a fine mesh. Previously, it was sold only for the beds, but now began to produce analogues of shrubs and fruit trees. For me it was a real find.

The design, though simple, but fully perform its function. The protection consists of a guide metal (or plastic, depending on the manufacturer) sticks, the fine grid and the tightening of the rope. On the side on the grid has a longitudinal slot, so that design can fit over the threads.

Contrary to some growers, the grid is not catchy and does not break the branches. Perfect for small bushes and fruit trees.

4. Stand for growing tomatoes

For those who love to grow tomatoes in their veranda, you should pay attention to the special stand made just for this purpose. The design is cut from the stand bottom and three guide perch. Recent joined top plastic triangle.

Stand consists of two circles. The inner circle has a continuous recess in which the plant is located. The outer circle has small holes and is a system of drip irrigation.

Fits device in a bag or a bucket with a fertile soil. For watering the outer circumference is filled with water, which penetrates through small holes gradually fills the soil moisture. As growth tomatoes is tied to the guide rods. The result is a complete vertical growing culture.

Pots for seedlings taken from old newspapers so have gained popularity among gardeners that in some stores began to appear kits for their creation. The set includes a wooden shape, shovel, mortar compression bottom and a device for compacting the ground. In addition, the kit is a detailed instruction manual.

With the process of creating a set of pots is accelerated and becomes more pleasant.

Recently, I had a group In contact with and Odnoklassniki, Where every day I place the announcements of new materials.
