7 unpretentious plants that can be planted in a flower bed in early August

After the shrub has faded, it can be propagated and seated. Astilba is grown from seeds or cuttings (this is part of a bush with a rhizome). The optimal time for seating starts from the end of July and ends in October. In order for the plant to take root, the landing should not fall under the cold. When planting, you need to choose a place that is about 30-50 centimeters receding from the rest of the plants so that the astilba develops well.
Iris is a perennial plant. It is grown with cuttings or seeds. The optimal conditions for the good development of this plant are good lighting and some distance between the beds (about 25 centimeters). Irises bloom until the end of summer, and as soon as this process ends, they can be seated.

From the beginning of August, you can start planting peonies. These plants love good lighting, so choose a site in a sunny clearing. Peonies are planted by dividing the root. The faded bush is cut off, the rhizome is divided into several parts and each is planted in a separate hole — usually about half a meter deep. In order for the peony to grow better, a layer of drainage is laid at the bottom of the dug hole, as the plant does not tolerate too much moisture and begins to rot.
In order for the lily to take root, it must be planted no later than a month and a half before the first frost. Otherwise, the plant may not overwinter. Depending on the variety of the flower, it needs a different type of soil, but chernozem will be optimal for most varieties. Lily loves the sun, so flower beds located in a well-lit place without drafts are suitable for sowing. Like peonies, the lily will not be able to develop in waterlogged or waterlogged soil, so do not forget about drainage when planting.
