Chinese Peony care for Flower bud blackening

Chinese peony flower bud blackening is mainly caused by improper maintenance. Soil alkalinized agglomeration, root growth is poor, will affect the growth of flower bud, and will make the flower bud black. Prolonged lack of water, light or fertilizer can also blacken the buds.When we care for Chinese peony, plants need to be sprayed to prevent pests and diseases. The following are details of Chinese peony care for flower bud blackening.

Chinese peony is fond of acid soil. When we care for Chinese peony, it is suitable for planting with loose, breathable and sandy soil with good drainage performance. For a long time to irrigate the plant with tap water, the soil will be alkalinized agglomeration, soil consolidation is easy to affect the respiration and growth of the root system, will affect the bud growth, but also make the bud black.

In the growth period, if the way of watering is not appropriate, the plant is in a state of water shortage for a long time, will affect the growth of Chinese peony bud, and will make it black off. Chinese peony has strong drought resistance. When we care for Chinese peony, proper watering is needed to keep the soil moist. During the summer, you can increase the amount of watering, spraying water to the plant, to add water to the leaves.

Chinese peony has a high demand for light and fertilizer before flowering. If light is not enough or fertilizer is too little, the flower bud is easy to turn black, and the longer it grows, the smaller it becomes. When we care for Chinese peony, it needs to be placed in the outdoor maintenance, to give the plant adequate light and fertilizer. Fertilizers are mainly phosphorus and potassium fertilizer, and thin fertilizer is applied frequently, with sufficient illumination and nutrients, which can promote the growth of flower buds.

After flowering, Chinese peonies need to control water and fertilizer, which is conducive to the growth of flower buds. If given the plant fertilization and watering normally, nutrient and moisture are too much, the root system can not absorb too much nutrient, easy to make the flower fall off, still can affect the growth of bud. When we care for Chinese peony, plants need to be watered and fertilized to give them plenty of light during flowering.

Chinese peony care for new leaves rolled up

Chinese peony new leaves rolled up may be because of Chinese peony anthrax disease, watering method is wrong, the lack of fertilizer, or soil deterioration. When we care for Chinese peony to timely drainage, the flowerpot in the ventilated position, the soil is best changed once every six months, to ensure the nutrients of the soil and loose ventilation. The following are details of Chinese peony care for new leaves rolled up.

1. Chinese peony care for anthrax disease control

Chinese peony new leaf rolls are because the Chinese peony anthrax disease won the Chinese peony anthrax immediately after removal of pathogenic, diseased leaves. In order to avoid infection disease again, we also can spray treatment, and we can use fifty percent carbendazim wettable powder 500 ~ 800 times liquid, injection time, seven days will be good after two or three times.

2. Watering  care

Chinese peony new leaves rolling may also be because the watering method is wrong. Too much soil moisture or soil is too dry, will lead to Chinese peony leaves rolling, too much water will lose the soil. When we care for Chinese peony, timely drainage, the flowerpot in the ventilated position, dry soil will be more water spraying to increase humidity.

3. Fertilizing care

Malnutrition of Chinese peony will also lead to curly new growth. When growing, the trunk and flower buds of Chinese peony are the first to absorb nutrients, so the leaves cannot absorb sufficient nutrients and will curl slowly. When we care for Chinese peony, fertilization should be appropriately increased at this time, and the previous fertilization method should be restored after the leaves stretch out.

4. Soil care

In the process of planting Chinese peony, there will be some residual fertilizer that cannot be absorbed in the soil. If the soil is not replaced for a long time, the soil will deteriorate and lack nutrients and be impermeable, leading to the curling of Chinese peony leaves without nutrients. When we care for Chinese peony, it is best to change the soil for planting plants every six months to ensure the nutrients of the soil are loose and breathable.
