Zagreb (photo report)

ZagrebIn ancient times, one of the Croatian bans (ban - leader, ruler, sometimes the king's deputy) led his army along the edge where the city now stands. There was a hot, debilitating drought. The warriors suffered from agonizing thirst. At a halt, the ban thrust his sword into the ground, and a fountain of cold water suddenly gushed out of it. Ban called his army to the source of salvation, exclaiming: "Rake it!" And the warriors - some with a helmet, some with their palms - began to "rake in" and drink life-giving moisture. From there allegedly the name of the city is Zagreb. So the legend says. However, according to another Croatian version, "zagreb" in the old Croatian language meant a mound (that which was "raked up"), a fortification, a hill fort.

On the personal plot, the main task in the struggle for the harvest and the good development of ornamental plants is to create a loosened soil layer 25-30 cm deep for berry and vegetable crops and 40-50 cm and more for fruit trees.

Biological accelerators

Biological acceleratorsAs the legends and folk tales of antiquity testify, people from time immemorial have prepared wine from grape juice, made cheese from sour milk, struck enemies and wild animals with arrows, the tips of which were saturated with deadly poison. Man has observed and used many amazing transformations taking place in living organisms and materials taken from them, such as blood coagulation, ripening (and decomposition) of meat, fish and plant products.

Extraordinary barometers

Extraordinary barometersIt is well known that the weather changes in a certain sequence. For example, bad weather is usually preceded by changes in pressure, sky conditions, illumination. A number of living organisms, possessing organs sensitive to meteorological changes, by their behavior can signal a change in weather.

What is the reaction of plants to weather changes? It turns out that it is synchronous with these changes, but not ahead of them. Although in some cases, plants, responding to subtle fluctuations that begin to change the weather, give us a signal, draw our attention to what is happening in nature.

Hole burdocks of water lilies, yellowed bunches of sedges, and broken reeds freeze into the ringing, fragile strip of the banks.On frosty clear nights, the banks quickly grow in width, their ice becomes thicker, and soon only in the middle of the lake, above the whirlpool, a small hole remains for several days. Another week - the ice will get stronger, and the children from the neighboring village will spin around the lake, ringing their skates.

BarberryA variegated fly flew up to the bush - the smell of barberry flowers attracted her from afar. She sat down on a bright cluster of yellow flowers, like tiny ornate lampshades, and stuck her proboscis into the very bottom of the flower. As soon as she tasted the sweetness of nectar, something in the flower trembled, something hit her on the back. The fly stopped for a second, but then began to suck on the sweet juice again. Six times she felt shocks inside the flower and six times she was hit. Taking everything she could from the flower, stained with pollen, she flew away.

Why do gladiolus bulbs get sick?

Why are gladiolus bulbs sick

For several years now, more than 50% of varietal gladioli have been dying in our garden. In the fall, we carefully select only healthy bulbs, burn all diseased bulbs, and store a small part of diseased bulbs separately and plant them in an isolated area. After two or three years, we change the site, constantly in the fall and spring we pickle the bulbs with a strong solution of potassium permanganate. Yet more gladioli die each year. They bloom, give a good ear, and then the lower leaves of the plants begin to turn yellow, and when we dig up the bulbs, many are sick: with brown scales and yellow roots. Such bulbs do not produce babies. What's the matter? It would seem that we follow all the rules of agricultural technology.
