The common saying of \"seven points and three -point cutting\" of Hua and Maintars, many people think that pruning is out of beauty, but it is not. Winter is the hibernation period of some plants. Its energy acquisition ability will be greatly weakened, but the consumption is still continuing. Branching can help plants to save energy and safe winter. So what exactly is the specific situation?
Speaking of pruning
Q: Why chose to cut pruning in winter?
Answer: Flower and trees can be carried out all year round, so there is no saying on which season. However, for different periods, different growth of plants can help plants grow better by trimming.
Q: Winter temperature is low, pruning will make the cutting part frostbite, will it not affect the growing growth of plants in the coming year?
Answer: In winter, the plants have entered the dormant period. At this time, the cutting part is not possible, and it will not adversely affect the growth of plant growth. Unless slightly frostbite will occur unless it is minus 20 degrees Celsius, but in Wuhan, such weather should not appear.
The benefits of pruning in winter
In the early winter period, the plant was a dormant period. In this period, pruning was carried out.
1. Prevent pests and insect pests
By removing dry branches, disability, pests and insect branches to prevent pest virus aggression.
2. Save nutrients
Winter water is less water, reducing the branches of plants is conducive to the preservation of water, reducing the waste of water, and conducive to the growth of the coming year. Cutting thin branches and useless branches can also concentrate nutrients to support other healthy branches and leaves, help plants to safely cross the winter and increase survival rate.
3. Improve the aesthetics
Cut off the dense branches, increase the ventilation of trees, reduce the weight of the trees, and avoid the trees from being blown by strong wind. Winter trimming can improve the appearance of the trees and maintain the beautiful shape of the trees and the shapely structure.
Winter pruning? Different plant varieties treat differently
For leaf -viewing flowers and trees, the trimming time should be decided according to the winter room temperature. If the room temperature is low, it should be trimmed before entering the room to reduce the crown and reduce the area; if room temperature It is high, and it should be trimmed when the room comes out of the next year to avoid stimulating the axillary buds in winter and drawing new shoots and consume nutrition.
For flowers and trees with weak germination, such as pine and cypress, it is difficult to recover after cutting. Generally, do not cut it again.
Fujimoto flowers and trees generally do not need to be trimmed, only cutExcept for old and dense branches.White magnolia, cherry blossoms, chicken feet and other beautiful tree -shaped flowers and trees do not make big trimming.
How to operate in winter branches?
Pruning is mainly sparse branches and short intercept .
Sparse branches is to cut off dense branches, cross branches, long branches, weak branches, diseased insect branches, and withered branches, in order to facilitate ventilation and light transmission, and reduce the occurrence of pests and insect pests.
Short interception is a part of the branches shortening, prompting its germination side branches, adjusting the growth, making the crown evenly, beautiful tree shape, which is conducive to blooming and more results.
When trimming, the cutting mouth should be smooth. The cutting mouth should be about 1 cm above the side bud.For example, if the sprouts are too close, the stems and leaves in the bud will often hurt the buds, and the buds are also easy to dry.When trimming, you should also pay attention to the top of the top buds on the outside of the branch, so that the new branches can grow outward, so that the tree shape can be beautiful.
