解码植物标签

Knowing what plant is suited to your garden is a question asked by all gardeners - from novice to expert.

Understanding how to read a plant or seed label or description will help guide you to successful plantings.

Whether you are planning flower beds or a vegetable garden, buying seeds or shopping for plants; the beautiful plant photos can easily lure us into misinformed purchases. 工厂的标签, labels and seed packets offer information about the plant's light needs, 土壤的偏好, 所需空间及更多, which can help narrow selections but more importantly will help you locate plants that will thrive in your garden.

Here is a simple list that will help you decode the labels before making your selections.

多年生,二年生或一年生

首先,让我们来定义这三个重要的术语.

不同之处在于植物的生命周期. Annual plants sprout, bloom, set seed and die all in one year. Biennial plants have a life cycle of two years so they germinate and grow one year, 开花和死在下面. Everything which lasts longer than two years is Perennial, which in practical terms usually means it grows and flowers for many years.

深度 & 间距

These details outline how deep to plant and how far apart to space the seeds or plant. This is determined by how wide the plants will be at maturity.

间距 can be a personal decision as cottage gardeners may wish to place annuals and perennials closer together for more impact, w在这里as vegetable gardeners will allow more space to access the crop.

树 and shrubs should be carefully spaced according to the labels to allow for their growth. Planting them too close to the house or walkways will eventually cause issues. 

浇水

It is a good idea to hang onto or file the labels or tags for perennials, trees and shrubs in case you ever need to seek advice on care. The scientific names for annuals are less important unless you are keen on a specific brand or shade of Petunia (for example) you wish to remember for future seasons.
