Spontaneous awareness and surprise are two elements that encourage us to rejoice over the location and beautification of our garden spaces. The same could be said for horticulture and gardening in general. Our efforts and investments might well be paying off with beautiful ornamentals and verdant shrubs. We can all acknowledge that nature’s grace, nature’s glory and nature’s marvelous creations can be easily overlooked.
For example, we all drive over blooming common cherry trees, lavender, mango, cinnamon apples, flowering watermelons and persimmons. The only difference is that the ornamental plants of our carnival grounds have been grounded down by power lines, concrete, rock or dirt. But there are other species that make great additions to the beauty of our most commonplace perennial gardens.
What are the Benefits of Planting Oxalis Bulbs?
Oxalis or daisy is a variety of the genus Morphophyllus, which includes one of the largest grape stalks known. Its seeds are much smaller and typically have sturdy skin. In fact, whenever an oxalis bulb is transplanted into a perennial garden it protects the new plant with a new protective covering that is commonly called a “coating.”
After that, the new plant flower becomes a permanent addition to the garden, even though Oxalis bulbs are given second life as grass clippings or compost. While some spring rain has little impact on new growth, applying commercial fertilizer is a good idea to expand plant life by accomplishing many purposes.
The advantage of using this fertilizer is it will encourage the new plant growth. Therefore, waterlilies and bee balm should be started with Oxalis bulbs. This fertilizer will also eliminate a lot of the weed problems that exist in most gardens. One must know what he or she is applying the fertilizer with so that weeds will not be seedling and that flowering plants will grow without weeds bursting over their heads. Additionally, the fertilizer will greatly enhance the quality of soil.
More Green and Vegetable Beneficiaries
If planting Oxalis bulbs in fall, they can be composted in the fall and used in compost fertilizer. Compost fertilizers are environmentally friendly as they require little heating in the winter. They also do not require any use of toxic chemicals.
Oxalis bulbs should be planted only a few inches deep. Leaves, grass and other plants can cause them to become dead. Oxalis bulbs are rather light-weight so they do not need to be irrigated after they are planted.
Best Methods for Planting Oxalis Bulbs
Now that you know about its beauty and benefits, transplanting these bulb into your gardens is quite easy. But which varieties to use depends on what the space can accommodate. For instance, spring Oxalis can be installed as low-leaved such as Butterspot. Oxalis, as a general rule, should be transplanted in late summer, but they don’t typically like cold weather.
