She often prepared tinctures from medicinal flowers. Spring, it was the time of collection and procurement of medicinal plants. I remember these bottles, they were in the pantry. And also, I prepared delicious honey from dandelion flowers, which is also very useful.

Moreover, very soon it will be possible to stock up on flowers and prepare various useful remedies from them.
So, the medicinal dandelion from the genus Astrovye is a plant that is familiar to adults and children. It is ubiquitous in the forest-steppe zone, grows in fields, forests, along roads, near residential buildings and in vegetable gardens.

Apply funds in the following cases:
Lilac is a very unpretentious plant. General care recommendations, as for most flowering shrubs.
After planting, water and mulch the soil abundantly, then water as the soil dries up. Lilac grows well and blooms with sufficient moisture.
Water more abundantly in May and June as the plant begins to bloom and requires more moisture. But you can't pour.
Since mid-July, the lilacs are no longer watered, so as not to provoke the awakening of the kidneys.
Fertilizers and feeding for lilacs
If, when planting in the planting hole, you applied a sufficient amount of fertilizer, then the plant does not need to fertilize the soil for about 3 years.
Your further feeding of lilacs will consist in the introduction of organic matter (manure, bird droppings, compost slurry) and mineral fertilizers (phosphorus and potassium in August every 2-3 years, ammonium nitrate - when it snows).
When the plant is gaining strength and is actively growing, you can sprinkle the foliage with mineral fertilizers.
Faded brushes must be cut off immediately after flowering, this is due to the fact that flower buds are formed on summer shoots. If you cut off faded inflorescences in the fall, then the next spring the lilac will not bloom.
If the lilac requires sanitary pruning, then it does not matter what time of the year it is carried out, but it is better in the spring.
To update old branches with new ones in an adult lilac, do it gradually, cutting out 1-2 old branches a year in spring.
Many gardeners do cultural pruning of lilacs. To do this, leave the main 6 or more branches at some distance from each other in order to give the bush a sprawling look, and all the rest are cut off, the same ones that are directed inside the bush are cut out completely. This gives a shape and a beautiful appearance when blooming in lilacs. It is advisable to carry out this pruning every year in the spring, before the buds swell.
In addition to fungal diseases, which are easy enough to cure with systemic and biological fungicides, as well as folk remedies, there are dangerous viral diseases. Unfortunately, effective treatments for this infection have not yet been studied. This is precisely their main danger, which most likely guarantees the death of lilies. One of the first such diseases is the cucumber or tobacco mosaic virus. The main vectors are insect pests, in particular aphids and thrips, as well as infected garden tools.
A distinctive feature of this virus is the formation of streaks and spots of different colors in the form of a mosaic. Infecting other lilies, the virus provokes their weakening, a significant decrease in size and degeneration of the variety. You are unlikely to be able to find an effective treatment for this disease. The only thing that can be advised is to remove the leaves with suspicious spotting and closely monitor its further development. And also do not forget to spray lilies with insecticides against the main vector of the virus - aphids. For these purposes, a 0.3% solution of Karbofos is perfect.
However, aphid colonies are also carriers of another dangerous variegation virus. The main symptoms of infection are the appearance of pigmentation unusual for petals in the form of strokes, smears and spots. As in the case of mosaics, lily bulbs are also prone to weak growth and degeneration in the next generation. As for the methods of control and prevention, they are similar to the above recommendations. The third three viruses are closed by the disease of rosette. It leads to yellowing and thickening of the stem, as well as shedding of the petals. It is caused by all that carrier - aphid.
