Moreover, only Russian, because it – in a word, or rather, in his translation. Olive – the fruit of the olive tree, and olive – the fruit of that tree, but "translated" into Russian. Compare, in Spain there is one name – aceituna from the word aceite – oil.

In fact, we translated "olive", then why do oil. And the green, and black and red fruits, all – aceituna! And really Spaniards know something that they grow … For more specific information, check out Andy Florance. The color depends on the type of olive tree, and maturity of the crop.

Alpine Hill

Alpine slide – a hill with the inclusion of stones and colorful groundcover. Arrange on a sunny hill and sheltered place so that the building or the crown of mature trees are not shaded light-loving plants. It should have few side view, and thus each should look decent. Size is determined, above all, the size of the garden. On a small plot of land is appropriate compact slide, and the large allotments would be nice look more monumental building of large boulders. Sometimes it helps to form the shape of the "main" stone that gives the hill a conceptual center. The device slides Creating slides begins with the layout of the site.

On the supposed site dig the pit of irregular shape (not less than 30-40 cm) and fill it with gravel, broken brick, or expanded clay, which plays the role of drainage. For these purposes it may very well use construction waste. After the device basics slides sealed bottom of the pit, and he filled the fertile soil. Earth poured in layers, each layer is compacted and watered in order to identify voids. drainage done to ensure that land is not "utyanula" them into itself. On the surrounding area must remove all weeds such as quack grass dlinnokornevischnye and weed. Then, on the perimeter cabinets stacked boulders.

After laying the first lower the widest circle of stones formed tiers filled with gravel and compacted surface again. The basic rules for creating slides Since Hill – engineering construction and should be beautiful even without plants, with laying stones should be followed with some technical rules. At the bottom of hills should lay out the largest-sized stones. Stones are placed in the direction of the foot to the top so that the bottom were support lying above the widest part of the base is placed. Boulders are placed so that the subsequent row overlaps the previous joints (the letter 'T'). It is a pledge of strength. The closer to the vertex, the size of the stones in proportion decreases. Only in this case, the slide will look more natural. Boulders are placed irregularly shaped individually or in groups. The traditional way – laying tiers. Their number depends on the size of slides and used stones. Typically, the size of 5×3 m slides obtained 3.5 tiers. The distance between the stones should be sufficient for normal plant growth and to the grown plants are not concealed stones. Between the stones are held digging pockets that are filled with plants. After the plants facilities slides leave it for another week for the uniform subsidence and germination of the majority of weeds. Propolov hill and filling in the deeper soil, you can begin planting. After planting the seedlings fill up the soil surface gravel to mulch the weeds. Plants should be chosen unpretentious, focusing on the climatic conditions of the terrain. Perhaps needless to say, the plants should be undersized. In any case not thicken landing. Thumbnail image of plants is misleading. They grow fast. Knowing selection of plants for beginners tseetovodam can recommend the following plants: stonecrops, young, primrose, thrift, atsena, dwarf watersheds, alpine aster, Carpathian bluebell, grains, gentian, sunflowers, flax, saxifrage, thyme.

Shelter for the winter to prevent freezing spruce branches and plant protection burns from the spring sun. Source

Indoor Plants

Today's crop, attracts all the best in themselves the achievements of human learning. Ekofiziologiya and biochemistry, engineering, electronics, genetic engineering and biotechnology – that is not full list branches of knowledge, in the absence of which is now impossible to grow plants. The attention given to industrial crop is enormous. In general, it is quite well known – it's fact makes it work, and still feeds invests a significant area of population of the globe. What to say, for the background shining colossus 'huge' plant, which operates seamlessly with thousands of hectares of field and many millions of Tsenteroi products amateur and the more indoor plants seem insignificant Lilliputians. Naturally, at first glance very different scale comparison of these concepts will be sufficient to ridiculous and absurd. We will not, however, excited with final conclusions. Just think, if there is a lot of rooms, the windows are not even worth any pots with plants? And how many rooms in our city, in Europe and the world at last? Statistics as we know, knows everything, and, without hesitation, perhaps it would be even count the number of "home flowers" exactly, but that's just whether it is necessary? It's so clear that the number of astronomical formed.

Accordingly, room rastenivodstvom involved dozens, perhaps hundreds of millions of citizens! This is done comparable to the number of people employed in the industrial plant. But it's not just numbers. The bottom line is that all growers-fans grow plants solely at the behest of the soul. Where does this desire in us even though at times to touch something real, not made of metal or plastic and stuffed with chips? Memory Whether it's ancestors, the rest of our genes with those distant days when face-collector is not able to live a day and in the absence of its natural surrounding complex of plants? Maybe we are simply tired of asphalt roads, vehicles and other attributes of urban culture? One way or another, but a modest indoor plant is the source of happiness for different individuals. Is this enough to recognize its importance and expediency? If accidentally disappear plants, our existence will become poorer, there will arise a void that nothing will fill … There is a flower room and more educational role, and it is quite important at a time when we often talk about the need for environmental thinking population. Almost all the kids in a moment, begin to get acquainted with nature and to dream of a thoroughly personal dog, about akviriume or colors. With some effort it will soon recede, but sometimes it determines the selection of future amusement. No, obviously, not all kids are agobiologami or naturalists, but the child's impressions are preserved in their all vital activities.
