How to grow flowering raspberry from seeds 紫花覆盆子(Rubus odoratus)種子孵法 Plant start to flower and fruit in the 3rd year. (Flower buds are forming.)植株第3年就開始開花結果! (花苞形成中.)

Use fresh currant year’s seeds. Best growing time is fall, second best time is spring.

You may sow directly if you have enough seeds to do so. Or:

1.Use clean container which has clear lid. Fill the container with well drained medium, moist the medium but not saggy. You can also use hydrated pit moss nuggets.

1.用洗淨的外帶食物盒或杯子有透明蓋子或不完全透明但可透光的容器,使用排水佳的介質噴水或使濕潤但不積水的程度. 或有泥炭土餅的話也可以. 泥炭土餅的好處是可以從種子發芽到地植/或盆植換大盆前都不用移.

2.Sow seeds in certain space, do not cover the seeds. Cover with the lid to keep the humidity in the seeding container. Place the seeding container in partial shade location. Open the container to check the progress every couple of days. About 10 days to 3 weeks they will germinate.

Once the seeds sprout, move the sprouted seeds in a small pot, 1 or 2 seedlings a pot. Keep seedlings moist and place them in partial shade location. When seedlings grow 6-8 true leaves, you can transplant the seedlings into larger pot. Keep seedlings moist. You can fertilize these seedlings in this stage.

2.在一定間隔的距離下種子,不覆土. 加蓋後放半日照溫暖但不熱的環境下等約3週. 每隔幾天檢查,種子一發芽根不深時移到小盆,每2小棵一盆. 用小透明塑膠袋加空氣留成長空間放在半日照處到本葉長出到6-8片時地植或換較大盆. 換盆或地植後改為不封但持續保濕在半日照處. 可開始施肥.

3.You may want to plant them in the ground when plant is 1.5′-2′ tall. Use fertilizer to promote flowers and fruits. Or just simply use dried out weed/grass clipping and burry them as natural fertilizer. Plants will flower and fruit the next year.

Harvest fruit when fruit turn darker red. When in full sun location the plant is still OK but when it is too hot, it will be good to use shade netting to prevent plants gets over heated.

3.植株長到1.5-2呎高時可以地植就地植,施有機磷肥或將雜草曬乾死後埋進土中自然腐化成肥. 隔年成熟即可開花結果. 果實轉深紅變軟就可採收食用. 土壤肥份時產量不小. 全日照也可但夏天過熱時應加遮光網以降溫.

Plant has no thorns. Flowers and foliage both have fragrance. Maximum mature height can reach to 3 metres. It is better to keep plant trim for easy harvest and promote more shoots for flower in order to increase the crop.

全株無刺. 花葉均有香氣. 若不修剪的話可達3公尺高度. 應修剪刺激多分枝以使產量增加. 可做為綠籬.

Purple flowers can be cut flower. Its fruit smells fragrant, tastes with sweetness and balance with a bit nice acid. Although no shelf live–better finish them soon after you harvest the fruit. Very easy to grow them in shady location like between big buildings or balcony. No significant pest or diseases. Just watch out the moisture of the soil.

紫色的花可為切花. 此果實香酸甜,味道還不錯,可野放又無嚴重病蟲害,弱光處林下或建築物蔭下或陽台皆可生長,果期比草莓長,也比一般草莓少病蟲害,只要不要乾死就行. 唯獨果實不耐久放,應採收後當天或隔天就食用.

白飯樹Common Snowberry ( Flueggea albus)

白飯樹Common Snowberry ( Flueggea albus)

北美原生的灌木,春天開許多粉紅色的小花,夏天果實成熟轉成白色.  人類可食.  也吸引鳥類食用.  生長快速. 耐陰耐濕. 可用分株扦插壓條種子等法來繁殖.  圖為一客戶家後院的白飯樹.

Stream Orchid / Broad-leaved Helleborine (Epipactis helleborine)北美原生蘭花之一—小河蘭

Stream Orchid /Broad-leaved Helleborine (Epipactis helleborine) 小河蘭

Native wild ground orchid.  It roots quite deep under the ground often under the big trees.  Shade and drought tolerant.  In spring it grows rapidly and flower in early summer than seed in fall.  Flowers are small and slightly fragrant.

小河蘭為原生土植的蘭花之一根系在土表下深度約6″到1呎多.  植株在4月底5月初破土後快速成長.  花小於6月底開到7月有時8月花開後若蠅類授粉於秋天中期或末期會結籽.  花有微香. 籽囊裡的種子很輕很細常隨風飄送.  種子顏色灰白或灰褐色.

This is one of the common native orchids in Ontario, Canada. I see them free flowering in July/August under big trees. No fragrance, flower size is small about 1cm (3/8″) across on a flower stem, seed pods usually mature around October, self seeded. Mature plant height is almost 60 cm (24″), they prefer shade. 北美原生的小河蘭,成熟植株約達2呎高,夏天7月/8月開花,十月種子達成熟會爆開,種子粉狀細小,容易生長繁殖,喜生長在陰暗的大樹下. 花無香味,有逐漸城市化的趨勢.

鈴蘭 Lily-of-the-valley (Convallaria majalis)

多年生球根花卉,非常耐寒,多以分株或種子繁殖,土壤不拘,一般而言光照不拘,但以全日照或半日照為佳. 弱光處也能成活但花莖會減少.  北美的花園幾乎都有它.  簡直是和西伯利亞海蔥一樣為"雜草級"的球根花卉,春天4-5月成熟的球會先抽出含花莖的葉片開始開花時會續長其它葉片,未成熟到可開花的球應多給磷肥養球以刺激來年開花.  若種植的環境氣候較溫暖而不開花建議秋末冬初時將較大的球挖起保濕然後冰箱冷藏2-3個月"冬眠"即可.  此植物耐旱,故排水要不錯.

How to Grow Lily of the Valley

These seeds must be cold stratified. Check out the Making Winter page. Wet a paper towel, wring out, sow seeds in towel, fold, and put in baggie in fridge for 4-8 weeks. Some people freeze the seeds (I have never tried this, but recently I have come across much info that says freezing seeds increases the length of viability). Take seeds out and sow, barely covering. Cold-stratified seeds germinate better when they get light. Or just plant outside in fall. This seed is a good candidate for the soaking method – soak seeds in cold water in the fridge for two weeks, changing for fresh water daily. Take out and plant. These seeds don’t have any Mercury speediness in their growth – they can take 2 months or more to germinate. Grow them in a pot and give them winter protection the first year, then put them in the ground in rich, moist soil and shade or dappled shade. They won’t bloom if they get too much sun or are too dry, but they can grow in heavy clay and full shade. They are hardy to zone 6 (-10F/-20C) and are rabbit-proof. They spread by creeping rhizomes and sometimes can be invasive. Once they are established, divide them in September. General growing info Top

時間到後取出播於盆土,蓋淺淺的土就好. 種植處須半日照或散光處. 土壤不拘但必須排水良好+保濕良好.
