10 Ways to Decorate Your Wedding With Greenery

Studio127 Photography

Flowers are beautiful, but they can easily eat up your entire wedding budget if you’re not careful. That’s why we were so excited to hear that more couples are ditching over-the-top florals for greenery for their 2017 nuptials. In fact, this simple yet elegant look is one of the hottest wedding trends of the year, according to Pinterest.

Here are 10 of our favorite (and budget-friendly!) ways to decorate your wedding with eucalyptus, ivy, ferns and more.

The Bouquet

For a hand-picked look, forgo flowers for a bouquet full of greenery. Old Frond Floral Co. tied off this flower-free bouquet with a length of leather for a rustic touch.

The Hairstyle

If you’re over flower crowns, try pinning a small spray of greenery into your hairstyle instead.

The Boutonnieres

Make the groom stand out with a floral boutonniere for him and greenery-only bouts for the rest of the guys.

The Ceremony Backdrop

Floral arches are stunning, but expensive. For a more rustic ceremony look, hang garlands of greenery from the ceiling.

The Wedding Wreath

Wreaths aren’t just for Christmas anymore. We’re starting to see them pop up at more weddings as this trend takes off. Case in point: this slightly wild wreath centerpiece that hangs over the dinner table in lieu of traditional centerpieces.

The Bar Décor

Dress up a DIY bar at a backyard wedding with garlands of eucalyptus for lush—not to mention fragrant—look.

See More on Local Milk Blog.

The Garland Centerpiece

Weave garlands of ferns between hurricane candle holders for a soft and romantic look. You’ll hardly notice the floral centerpieces are missing.

The Wedding Cake

For an elegant but simple look, ask your florist to add a few touches of greenery to your wedding cake, like this one by Sweet Cheeks Baking Co.

Of all places on earth, fall in New England may be one of the prettiest. The region is totally MADE for the autumn season, and every fall activity you could dream of can be found here, with a backdrop of brilliant foliage and quaint little towns.

That picture-perfect autumn. Can’t you just see it? Picking apples on a crisp September day. Cozy nights in front of a crackling fire, sipping hot cider. Octobers bursting with ruby, gold, and amber. A spooky Halloween night where your breath shows in the chilly air.

We know just what you’re looking for, and we know exactly where to find it: New England.

As you plan your autumn travels, we think New England MUST be on your list. And if you’re going to visit, you should choose the very best spots. Here are nine amazing destinations where you can find numerous things to do in New England in the fall.

  • New England Fall Foliage Info
  • The Best Places to Enjoy Fall in New England
    • Stowe, Vermont
    • The Cold Hollow Cider Mill – Waterbury, Vermont
    • Burlington, Vermont
    • Acadia National Park, Maine

    • The White Mountains, New Hampshire

    • Providence, Rhode Island
    • Woodstock, Vermont
    • Mike’s Maze – Sunderland, Massachusetts
    • The Litchfield Hills, Connecticut
    • The Berkshires, Massachusetts

New England Fall Foliage Info

First, let’s cover the basics of fall foliage in New England: when and where to see it.  

It’s important to note that foliage conditions vary each year, due to that year’s weather conditions and other factors. However, in general, you can expect to see fall foliage throughout New England from early/mid-September through the end of October. Peak foliage, when the leaves are at their best and brightest of the season, typically hits in October. The foliage develops from north to south, with northern spots like Vermont, Maine, and New Hampshire generally experiencing “peak” before Massachusetts, Rhode Island, and Connecticut.

Here is an excellent visual representation of how the foliage changes in New England in the autumn: Yankee Magazine Peak Foliage Map

So if you’re planning to visit New England in the fall, keep this progression in mind and try to plan your travels accordingly. 

The Best Places to Enjoy Fall in New England

The following destinations are beautiful spots to explore in New England in the fall. If you want to include a few destinations on your itinerary, be sure to check out our list of 8 New England fall road trip ideas!

Stowe, Vermont

Stowe is a gorgeous village in a prime foliage spot. In a valley surrounded by Vermont’s Green Mountains, it’s a top destination to see vibrant fall colors (although you do have to plan your visit just right to catch peak foliage!)

The leaves tend to be brightest and boldest in early October, but this may change slightly according to conditions each year.

With its white-steepled church, the village of Stowe presents the perfect fall photo opportunity. While it is also a popular winter destination due to its nearby skiing and other winter activities, Stowe is resplendent in fall.

Many come here to hike or to enjoy cycling, shopping, and art. It’s also a good place for foodies, with delicious restaurants both in Stowe and nearby Waterbury.

Fall foliage hike options in Stowe include: Moss Glen Falls, Stowe Pinnacle Trail (great views!), and Sterling Pond. You might want to investigate nearby cabin rentals, for an utterly autumnal experience!

The Cold Hollow Cider Mill – Waterbury, Vermont

For the best fall delicacies, stop at the Cold Hollow Cider Mill in Waterbury for fresh-pressed cider and what I’d consider some of the best apple cider doughnuts on the planet.

This place just SCREAMS fall, and the scent of cinnamon, apples, and happiness hits you as soon as you get out of your car. 

Take time to wander the adorable store filled with every apple gift and food item you could imagine, and then head across the parking lot to their onsite restaurant and cidery. Come hungry!

Burlington, Vermont

Not far from Stowe is the lovely lakeside town of Burlington, VT. This hip, artsy town is home to numerous galleries, coffee shops, breweries, and shopping opportunities.

It all overlooks the beautiful Lake Champlain, an enormous body of water that stretches from north to south, separating the states of Vermont and New York. The vista of the lake, with the mountains of New York in the background, is especially excellent in the fall.

The activities centered around the lake–boating, scuba diving, ferry rides, etc.–are best enjoyed in the warmer months. However, the sheer number of shops and places to hang out, the beautiful hillside neighborhoods with their unique New England architecture, and the breathtaking views of Lake Champlain all make Burlington a great place to visit in New England in the fall.

For more ideas on things to do in Burlington, check out our list!

Acadia National Park, Maine

The most northerly option on this list, Acadia National Park is a fall destination that offers wilderness and adventure.

This 47,000-acre national park is set on the coast of Maine, nearly in Canada, and is a perfect spot for outdoor lovers to experience a New England autumn. There are countless options for hiking and camping. Many hikes offer incredible views of oceanside cliffs and inlets.

Breathtaking scenery isn’t the only great thing about the area. The cozy town of Bar Harbor offers dining, shopping, and culture, so you can enjoy the best of both worlds.

After roughing it, spend the night in a warm Bar Harbor B&B. Bar Harbor has some great restaurants whose chefs love using local, seasonal flavors. A fall-inspired meal on coastal Maine sounds amazing.

You can also head out on the water for a scenic cruise, and of course, don’t miss the lighthouse.

Acadia National Park and Bar Harbor are likely to be less crowded in September and October, after the busier summer season, so take advantage. It will start to grow quite chilly here by the end of September–a good thing to keep in mind if you hope to go camping.

Mid-October is generally forecast to be peak foliage, but follow local reports for the most accurate info.

Salem, Massachusetts

Speaking of things to do in New England in October, is there be a better Halloween destination than Salem, Massachusetts? Salem has become synonymous with Halloween celebrations. This is likely due to its infamy as the site of the 1692 witch trials, but Salem today is still a witchy, eclectic town. Thousands descend upon the area each October for Haunted Happenings, the town’s annual Halloween celebration. The popular 90s film Hocus Pocus (which was filmed here) brought Salem to life for many young people, myself included!

Salem is rich with history, and you’ll be kept busy by museums, exhibits, and notable sites. Real history buffs might want to read up on the witch trials before visiting, as this will help you better understand the dark events of the town’s past.

If the spiritual interests you, Salem is home to many modern-day witches and spiritualists. You can sign up for a palm reading, tarot session, or other experiences. Or simply browse the shops and peruse the magical goods.

In Salem, fall is definitely in the air. It’s a beautiful and picturesque destination that is great for shopping, dining, and walking. Its proximity to Boston makes it an easy getaway, too.

With its position on the coast, Salem is likely to experience peak foliage in mid-to-late October.

The White Mountains, New Hampshire

New Hampshire is another great state to visit in New England in the autumn. The rugged White Mountains will be aflame with color and make for spectacular hiking and leaf-peeping.

New Hampshire has many choice spots for foliage, including classic-looking towns such as Sugar Hill or Jackson as well as more tourist-centered places such as North Conway and Lincoln.

Early October is when this outdoor paradise tends to reach peak foliage, and it’s definitely worth planning ahead to catch the mountains decked out in autumnal hues.

For an extra fun fall excursion, drive the famous Kancamagus Highway, a scenic stretch of road that runs 34 miles through the White Mountain National Forest. It is bookended by Lincoln and Conway, so you’ll get the chance to stop in two top destinations during your drive.

New Hampshire is also notably beautiful in wintertime!

Mack’s Apples – Londonderry, New Hampshire

If you’re looking for the classic, old-timey New England fall experience, Mack’s Apples will provide. This is practically an institution in NH, an 8th-generation, family-owned 400-acre farm. In early autumn, visitors can start picking apples, selecting fruit from 100 acres of trees. 

Pumpkins can be picked, too. When you’re done picking, stop by the farm stand which offers maple syrup, fresh-grown veggies, pies, pears, squash, and more.

Providence, Rhode Island

Providence is the biggest city on our list of New England fall getaways. There’s a lot going on in this city year-round, and fall is no different.

Within a short drive from Providence, you’ll be able to take in fall activities like corn mazes and pumpkin patches. You can plan for events like Oktoberfest and other fall festivals both in Providence and nearby Newport.

There’s something very cozy and autumnal about a city. Providence boasts some interesting older architecture and impressive homes. With the addition of fall foliage, these take on an imposing look.

Horror fans may know that author H.P. Lovecraft lived most of his life in Providence, his hometown. You can explore significant Lovecraft sites, such as his home and his grave, as well as locations that figure into his works of horror fiction.

There’s no better time than autumn for such things!

Woodstock, Vermont

Woodstock is classic New England, with covered bridges, rolling farmland, and a tidy Main Street. This is a destination that is lovely in summer, picturesque in winter, and stunning in autumn. It’s probably not too bad in spring, either!

If you’re looking for a small village where you can hide away for a fall weekend in New England, Woodstock is an excellent choice. Your main activity is likely to be leaf-peeping, as the foliage will explode in late September and early October.

You can also dine on cheese, apples, and other Vermont fare, with lots of autumn specialties available at the many great local restaurants. Consider booking a farm stay at the beautiful Fat Sheep Farm. 

Antiquing is also a great fall activity here, with many roadside shops stocked with eccentricities and treasures. Be sure to stop by the Quechee Gorge overlook, to have a look at the gorge in its autumn splendor.

PS: Check out Manchester, Vermont as another alternative slightly further south.

Mike’s Maze – Sunderland, Massachusetts

Don’t just visit the best corn maze in New England, visit the best in the US, according to Yahoo.

Mike’s been creating insanely intricate mazes for nearly two decades. Check out the incredible past designs, as photographed from the sky, here. That’s some amazing stuff.

There’s way more here than just an elaborate corn maze, too. Farm animals, pedal carts, a cafe, and more make this a fall bucket list destination. 

The Litchfield Hills, Connecticut

Connecticut is the most southerly of the New England states, but it, too, enjoys glorious fall foliage. In fact, CT claims to have the longest foliage season of all six states, giving you plenty of time to come for a visit.

The Litchfield Hills are a highly recommended spot to witness fall in Connecticut. Covered bridges, small villages, and sparkling lakes await you in this area.

Many choose to drive the Litchfield Hills Ramble, a route that circles 100 miles from Torrington through Litchfield and brings passengers past lush foliage.

Here, classic farms are bordered by stone walls, covered with fallen golden leaves. Hidden waterfalls are to be found within the woods, trimmed in color.

It is best to do this road trip in late September and early October. Don’t miss the town of Kent, called one of the finest towns for foliage in all of New England.

Hiking, kayaking, fishing, and antiquing are popular activities in the hills, but it has also recently become something of a foodie destination, so bring your appetite.

The Berkshires, Massachusetts

In Western Massachusetts, you’ll find the Berkshires, an area that bears some similarities to the Litchfield Hills and abounds in art and culture. There are opportunities for picking fresh apples, plus a wide array of harvest festivals and fall celebrations.

Fall seems to be beloved by Berkshires residents and visitors alike.

Hiking is popular here. The mountains never seem too high, and you can capture breathtaking scenes with only a short walk. The foliage routes are also home to antique stores and other small shops where you can stop and search for trinkets.

Gorgeous homes are also a lovely site; a particularly good spot to see them is the stately town of Lenox. Why not climb aboard for a horse-drawn carriage ride? Relics of amazing history abound throughout the Berkshire region in every season, but they are especially beautiful in fall.

Top 10 Ways to Save on Wedding Flowers & Decor :: Southern Savers

If you’re planning a wedding, you’re probably already running through all of the ways you can cut things to fit into your budget.  One of the most obvious ways is your budget for flowers and decorations.  There are plenty of reasons to save money here and no reason to spend an arm and a leg!

1.  Select an Outdoor Location

If you choose an outdoor venue for your wedding and reception, it will already look beautiful without spending hundreds or thousands.  Let nature speak for itself and keep all of the other decorations very minimal.

2.  Use Lots of Greenery

If you’re using a florist, tell them you’re interested in using more greenery than flowers.  Greenery is a classic look and it’s way cheaper than a bouquet of roses.

3.  Buy In Season

If you’re buying flowers from the florist, make sure you choose flowers that are in season.  If you have your heart set on a particular flower but it’s not in season, it could cost you an arm and a leg.  Choosing flowers that are in season are not only less expensive, but it seems like a more natural and effortless design decision for your wedding.

4.  Hire an Inexpensive Florist or Creative Friend

I don’t highly recommend doing all of your flowers yourself.  Although, I’ve heard of people who this totally works out for and they have an awesome experience.  Yes, it’s the cheap way to go but since flowers are living products, they have an expiration date.  You have to wait until the last minute to arrange wedding flowers and it may be added stress you don’t want to handle the day before and day of your wedding.  Consider hiring an inexpensive florist.  You don’t need top notch florists to make beautiful arrangements.  If that’s still too expensive, ask a creative friend who isn’t in the wedding to arrange the flowers.

You can find quality flowers at the grocery stores.  Buy already-made bouquets from the store, take them apart and put them back together in your style.  When you buy the arranged bouquet you get a wider variety of flowers for your money than if you were to buy one bouquet of all the same flower.  My favorite stores for reasonably priced flowers are:  Fresh Market, Trader Joes and Publix.

5.  Have Bridesmaids Carry a Single Flower or a Non-Floral

Let’s face it, your house probably won’t be littered with photos of your bridesmaids holding their bouquets.  If anything, you’ll hang more pictures of you and your husband.  So save money on their bouquets and put it toward your bridal bouquet.  Consider having them hold a single show-stopping flower like a peony, king protea or even a hydrangea.

If you want to go even more frugal, don’t have them hold a flower at all.  Choose something that goes along with your wedding’s theme like a pinwheel, paper flowers or cotton.

6.  Use Plants as Centerpieces (Double as Favors)

Don’t spend a ton of money on elaborate floral arrangements for the centerpieces.  Plants still give life to the room and they’re not as fussy.  The best part is that they can double as favors.  Weather it’s a fern, something with flowers on it or another plant, this is a great option.  You can buy succulents very cheaply ($2 or less for tiny ones) and they’re easy to keep alive.

7.  Use Bottles for Centerpieces

You can find glass bottles for very inexpensive at flea markets or antique malls.  Choose a color that goes along with your theme and cluster them on each table.  They can be clear bottles, brown, amber, green or even wine bottles.  You can attach the table number to a bottle or add a single flower or two in each bottle to add a little bit of life to them which is still less expensive than an entire arrangement.  After the wedding you can display the entire bottle collection on top of your kitchen cabinets.

If you have clear glass and you want it to be go along with your wedding colors, you can easily stain the glass.

8.  Reuse Ceremony Flowers at Reception

Grab a vase for each table and put the bridesmaid’s bouquets in the vase to add some color for centerpieces or just to line up on a table, a window or a mantle.  It can create a lot of color rather than letting the bouquets sit unused on a table.  If you’re using big arrangements at the church, bring them to the reception for the food and gift tables.

9.  Use Candles

Who said there needs to be flowers at the tables, anyway?  Use a cluster of candles inside hurricanes at each table and add some greenery around the cluster to soften it.  Candles add a romantic feel to the space.

Make sure you check with the venue on any fire restrictions.  Many of them won’t let you have an open flame unless it’s inside of something like a hurricane.  Don’t get your heart set on tapered candles before you check with them.

10.  Use the Venue’s Decorations

Many venues have decorations on hand for you to use or rent.  You might as well use what they have than paying an arm and a leg to buy it yourself and then never use it again after the wedding.

90,000 Why do I always pick fallen leaves in my garden in autumn

Every autumn, with enviable regularity, fierce disputes flare up among townspeople and gardeners: whether to remove or not to remove fallen leaves. As an amateur gardener with many years of experience, I will say: it must be cleaned in the garden and on lawns!

Several years ago we did not have time to remove the foliage in the fall, and it went under the snow. An unpleasant surprise awaited us in the spring.

Such a crust of fallen leaves is formed in spring.The first spring flowers hardly make their way through it. And under it you can see mold in places. You can read more about it in the article “Last year’s fallen leaves on our site this spring” on our website “Moscow Region”.

This lesson clearly showed us that the fallen leaves in the garden should be removed in the fall, and not wait for spring. Otherwise there will be problems:

  1. By the spring, under uncleaned leaves, the ground does not dry out for a long time, and therefore the grass grows out. As a result, ugly bald spots are formed on the lawn, which do not overgrow for a long time.
  2. Foliage caked under the snow sticks together into a hard crust, sometimes covered with mold – a very unappetizing sight.
  3. This crust inhibits the growth of primroses, which are difficult to break through. And in the spring I really want to quickly enjoy the first flowers! In addition, from the lack of light under the crust, they turn yellow, and when trying to break through the “shell” – they are damaged and disfigured.
  4. Numerous pests hibernate under the foliage, which in spring are taken for food with renewed vigor.
  5. Some trees in their foliage contain substances that prevent the germination of any seeds under them, this is a kind of protection of their food area from competitors, and as a result, bald spots are formed. If their fallen foliage is not removed, there will be bare ground under such trees.

Fallen leaves in our garden. Photo from my Instagram

In autumn, we remove most of the leaves in the compost pit, leaving only a small part of them under the trees, where they will not harm the lawn and protect the roots from the “black” frosts that are common in our area.

Part of our garden is set aside for the “forest” area. There are dogs walking there that have trampled almost the entire lawn. Therefore, here we only rake the fallen leaves to the tree trunks.

In the forest and in nature, of course, is another matter. And it would be strange to expect to see a well-groomed English lawn there.

Fallen leaves

Rozanov means his actual wife Varvara Butyagina, nee Rudneva. He met her in the late 1880s in Yelets, where at that time he served as a teacher of geography and history in a men’s gymnasium. Butyagina was a 21-year-old widow of a priest with her little daughter in her arms. Rozanov noted more than once that feelings for the young widow arose largely because of her stories about love for her first husband: and illness) very much.In 1891, the couple got married, but secretly – without witnesses and records in the church book, under the condition to immediately leave Yelets. The secrecy was explained by the fact that Rozanov was already married by that time.

While still a student, he married the forty-year-old writer Apollinaria Suslova, the former mistress of Dostoevsky. The marriage with her turned out to be a real torment for Rozanov, a literary critic and theologian
Sergey Durylin

Sergei Nikolaevich Durylin (1886-1954) – literary critic, theologian, theater critic.From 1906 to 1917 he made a number of ethnographic trips across the Russian North, after which he formulated the thesis about the city of Kitezh as the foundation of Russian spiritual culture. He was the secretary of the Moscow Religious and Philosophical Society in Memory of Vladimir Solovyov. After the revolution he moved to Sergiev Posad and was ordained a priest. In 1922, Durylin was arrested and sent into exile in Chelyabinsk. After returning, he worked as a theater critic, taught at GITIS.

this is how he recalled their family life: “Despite the” romance “, on” Dostoevsky “, he was looking for marriage not according to psychology, but according to ontology, and he himself was captured by the marriage for psychopathology.”Suslova herself left her husband, but did not agree to a divorce for twenty years, which is why the children from marriage with Butyagina for a long time could not get their father’s surname, and the writer himself, if the truth about the secret wedding was revealed, could go into exile from – for bigamy. Probably fearing just such an outcome, Rozanov in his “leaflets” calls Butyagina not his wife, but “friend” or “mommy”.

Believe, people, in gentle ideas. Drop the iron: it’s a spider’s web. True iron is tears, sighs and longing.The true one that will never collapse is the one noble one. Live them

Vasily Rozanov

The writer attached great importance to the relationship with her, believed that he owed her spiritual rebirth and the emergence of the most important topics in his work. A significant part of “Fallen Leaves” is occupied with confessions to the “friend” of eternal love and fears for his health. In 1910, due to advanced syphilis, Butyagina suffered paralysis, the left side of her body lost sensitivity and the ability to move (her first husband also died from progressive paralysis caused by syphilis).The fact that for a long time the disease could not be correctly diagnosed and the chance for recovery was missed, Rozanov blamed himself personally: “And this torment: a friend is dying before my eyes and, in fact, through my fault. It is given to me to see every hour of her suffering, and these hours are already three years old. And when the “conscience” departs from me: being left without a “conscience”, I will see the whole abyss of blackness in which I lived and into which I actually went. ”

A burning feeling of guilt is probably explained not only by the choice of the wrong doctors for his wife: the writer was cheating on Butyagina.In letters to Florensky, Rozanov often talked about his bodily (bisexual) “experiences”, while he either defended their necessity, because they helped him in substantiating the “theory of sex”, then he was very ashamed of them. In a letter dated January 17, 1916, the writer explained his attitude to betrayal in the following way: “I am vague,“ cotton wool ”,“ everything climbs, ”“ shit, ”but at the same time I stretch out to the whole world and“ I have enough everywhere, ”and Varya (mine and, to a certain extent, “the only”, solo), and on Valya, and so on. <...> God arranged me in “cotton wool” to understand this unique psychology in the world, where “loyalty” and “unfaithfulness” are so intertwined that they do not contradict each other.

In Fallen Leaves, the image of a dying “friend” is the main antithesis of the lyrical hero Rozanov, embodied a mute reproach to him. Almost nothing characteristic and definite is said about the closest and beloved person here (if we do not take into account medical reports on health), for the reader Butyagin appears not as a living woman, but as a “conscience”, whose imminent disappearance from the author’s life forms the main plot book thread. In reality, Varvara Butyagina died only in 1923, having outlived Vasily Rozanov for four years.

Gloss, luxury and elegance of modern beds

GLITTER, LUXURY AND ELEGANCE OF MODERN BEDS

Modern beds are made from a variety of materials – it can be wood, and what imitates it, and metals … Also, as an addition plastic, leather, fabric and even glass are used.

It is unlikely that it will be possible to name the ideal option from all of the above – each has both its own advantages and certain disadvantages, which you must definitely learn about before making a choice.

Wood as the first bed material

Initially, when our ancestors did not have ways to work with hardwoods with sufficient accuracy, they used rods from which the frame of the future bed was made. Foliage or hay was placed inside, other soft material could be used. Now everything has changed – boards of various types of wood are used, both valuable and quite cheap. The most commonly used beech, mahogany and oak are very beautiful, not to mention durability and strength.

Wood has some advantages over metal in bed making:

  • comfort;
  • feeling of warmth;
  • environmental safety.

In addition, the tree can be given the most diverse forms, modern craftsmen sometimes achieve fantastic success in this business.

Wood simulation use

Wood, alas, is not one of the cheap materials, so sometimes you have to resort to substitutes.The most common substitutes are those made from wood waste such as sawdust. The result is chipboard and fiberboard.

These materials should be covered with veneer to give them a better appearance, you can use a cheap solution, which is plastic, or even an ordinary film imitating a wood pattern.

True, imitators have a serious drawback – they will not be able to get any frills because the materials do not lend themselves to rounding.True, now this has been corrected with the help of MDF, a material made from pressed paper and other materials. Even smooth curves can be achieved this way.

Wood simulants are cheap, but not very reliable.

Metal fineness and strength

Metal beds are made by forging, this is a very noble solution that allows you to get impressive results – forging is done by hand, which means that the result will be unique.No one else will have a model like yours. Wrought iron beds are very heavy, and it takes a lot of effort to move them. In addition, the headrest turns out to be incredibly strong, which adds reliability and functionality.

Of the shortcomings, it should be noted that metals are still quite cold, and it is not very pleasant to touch the details with a naked body. True, this can be avoided by ordering the polymer-treated version – it is very pleasant to the touch and not cold at all!

Autumn leaves harvest

For many years in a row, there has been a debate about whether it is necessary to remove fallen leaves in the fall.Officials and environmentalists of large cities, as before, cannot come to an agreement and work out a single concept that would suit each of the parties.

The problem of harvesting fallen leaves has been facing the city authorities for a long time. Ecologists say that there is no need to harvest and export the leaves. Fallen leaves cover parks and squares with a bright carpet, giving the city an elegant look. In addition, fallen leaves are an important component in the urban ecosystem. A dense carpet of leaves protects the root system of trees from cold and drying out.The leaves also enrich the soil with useful substances, creating a nutrient medium for plants.

Housing and communal services have a completely opposite opinion. Utility workers believe that heaps of dry leaves spoil the city’s appearance and create a feeling of desolation. The wind blows the autumn foliage onto the sidewalks, where they get wet. This makes the sidewalks slippery and dirty.

Environmentalists and public utilities agreed that the leaves should be removed from the footpaths, roadways, but those that cover the ground under the trees in parks should be left.While controversy raises the question – what to do with leaves in the yards? The parties did not come to a consensus and the problem is solved in different ways on the ground.

Experts of the Public Chamber of the Russian Federation also did not come to a unanimous opinion on the settlement of this issue. Some people tend to believe that urban ecosystems work differently than rural ones. Wet foliage is not only a source of unpleasant odor, but also serves as an excellent habitat for the larvae of many harmful insects. For these and a number of other reasons, fallen leaves must be removed.

The head of the Commission on Environmental Protection and Ecology believes that in large cities trees grow in scarce soil, they are exposed to harmful factors and therefore it is necessary to create acceptable conditions for them. The idea was put forward to collect the fallen leaves around the trunk of the tree, loosening the topsoil. Thus, the nutritional properties of the soil directly at the roots of the plant are improved, and the root system also receives reliable protection from frost.

To resolve the issue, the Moscow government decided to organize a special electronic referendum.The aim of the referendum is for the residents of the capital to choose on their own: whether to remove the fallen leaves or not.

State Duma deputy Andrei Tumanov believes that such referendums are not needed. These issues should be dealt with by specialists, based on their own experience, and also take into account the experience of foreign colleagues. Andrey Tumanov spoke about a special device for harvesting leaves, which grinds fallen leaves. Additional components are added to the resulting mass, thus, an excellent fertilizer is obtained, which returns to the soil.Thanks to this device, the problem of cleanliness on the streets and fertilizers for trees is simultaneously solved.

One of the main problems, according to the deputy, is an unprofessional approach to solving such problems. Often, non-professionals are involved in cleaning leaves, planting and mowing lawns. Cheap labor does not help to save money where knowledge, experience and special equipment are important.

90,000 Why do the leaves of indoor plants turn yellow? – 10 reasons and their solution

Reasons for the appearance of

To successfully deal with the problem, you first need to determine the cause of the yellowing:

Mistakes in plant care

  1. Natural change.In many indoor plants, nature has laid down the disposal of old or extra leaves: for example, when the foliage of a rose, hibiscus, ficus dies, a new one appears in its place.
  2. Excess calcium. In this case, the foliage turns yellow, but remains elastic and sits firmly on the branch.
  3. Lack of nutrients. The soil has not been fertilized for a long time, its composition has become impoverished and the plant simply has nothing to eat. Or the root system is just cramped in a small pots.
  4. Draft. An indoor flower can also “blow” from a window or air conditioner – then it begins to shed yellowed leaves in large quantities.
  5. Sunlight problems. Perhaps a pot with a particular flower is simply in a too dark corner, or too light and suffers from burns.
  6. Dry air. The first symptom of low humidity is that the tips begin to turn yellow.
  7. Overflowing. When the roots of an unsuitable plant for this plant are constantly in the water, rot and other diseases develop, leading not only to yellowness, but also to the death of a green pet.
  8. Temperature drops. Most often it occurs when a flower touches the cold window glass with leaves in winter.
  9. Pests. Small insects, such as spider mites or scale insects, literally suck all the juices from the plant and it loses its color.
  10. Diseases. These include infectious, viral, or fungal diseases.

How to get rid of yellowing?

So, if the leaves of indoor plants turn yellow, first of all find the reason. The conditions of detention did not change (they did not turn on the heating, the house did not get cold, the pot was not rearranged), but the leaves began to fall?

Most likely this is seasonal yellowing and there is no need to fight it.But just in case, check the leaves and stems for the presence of eaters: the aphids are visible from the underside, the mite’s web is in the internodes, the scabbard is almost over the entire surface. Midges and slugs can live in the ground – if the soil is garden or greenhouse, it must be treated with special preparations.

To find other, less obvious reasons, compare the conditions in your home with the description of the needs of a houseplant from a book or the Internet:

  1. Is there sufficient lighting?
  2. Doesn’t the flower suffer from a lack or excess of moisture?
  3. Is it time to start feeding or transplanting?
  4. What kind of water is used for irrigation?
  5. Is the soil composition correct?
  6. Does the pot have drainage holes or a drainage layer?

When the exact cause of the yellowness is found, we proceed to eliminate it.

Problems such as waterlogging or low humidity are solved by neutralizing stagnant water, drying the earthy clod and the usual spraying or installation of a humidifier. If the flower is in the wrong place, it is enough to rearrange it in the shade or provide additional lighting with a phytolamp. But you will have to tinker with sick house plants.

Folk ways

Lack of microelements

Some types of chlorosis can be treated without purchased drugs: for example, with a calcium deficiency (the plant has stopped growing, leaves and buds fall off), the eggshell is crushed and mixed into the soil.The amount of magnesium (the lower leaves turn yellow) is regulated by wood ash. With a lack of iron (it starts to turn yellow from the top), you can dig rusty nails into the ground.

Experts believe that folk remedies are ineffective and it is better to choose special purchased products to combat chlorosis.

Pests

First of all, the affected indoor flower is rearranged away from others: insulation will help protect green neighbors. In most cases, saving your favorite plants is realistic – the main thing is not to delay the beginning of the process.

How to get rid of moths?

What exactly to cultivate the land or shoots depends on the creature that feeds on the sap of the plant:

  • Aphid. An ordinary medium-sized onion is chopped in a blender or grated, poured with a liter of water and infused for 12-24 hours. Then the diseased specimen is thoroughly sprayed daily for 7-10 days.
  • Midge. Their appearance is the easiest to detect: midges begin to circle over the pot. Proper disposal involves not only killing flying adults, but also the larvae (they live in the ground).To do this, it is recommended to sprinkle the top layer of soil with ground black pepper or spread the zest of any citrus fruit on it. Over time, the pests will die.
  • Shield. Since these insects are protected by armor, getting rid of them is the most difficult. Alternatively, you can remove visible individuals by hand, and then treat the stems and leaves with a weak solution of acetic acid. Or dilute 1 tbsp in 1 liter of water. liquid soap and medical alcohol, beat into a lather and apply the solution to the habitat.
  • Spider mite. Soap also negatively affects these small eaters: take any sponge, lather, lather – wipe the entire plant from the ground to the top of the head. Alternatively, dilute a strong soapy solution and spray the flower.

Important! To increase the effectiveness of the above means, after processing, cover the plant with a film (you can simply put a bag on top). Not a single parasite likes wet “tropical” conditions, the method works flawlessly. After 12-24 hours, remove the bag, rinse the crown with a strong pressure of hot (~ 40C) water.

Diseases

When the leaf blades, roots or stems are infected with an infection or fungus, soap solution will not help. But you can use:

  • Potassium permanganate. An excellent disinfectant, used when preparing healthy plants for planting or for treatment when the roots are attacked by rot. The latter are caused by excess water and lack of drainage.
  • Soda. 35 g of baking soda per 10 liters of water – a solution for fighting powdery mildew or fungal infections is ready!
  • Hydrogen peroxide.Another disinfectant, works like potassium permanganate: heals fungus, rotting.

Important! When a threat to health appears – spots on the leaves, rot, fungi – plant care begins with the removal of the affected areas. If the disease starts from the root, the flower will need to be transplanted, after removing the affected roots and treating the remaining with a weak solution of manganese, peroxide or furacilin.

Professional products

The more the leaves turn yellow, the faster it is necessary to decide which fertilizer or fungicide is required for treatment.

Lack of minerals

Good nutrition is the guarantee of the health of all living things. Plants are no exception. Individual substances can be used as fertilizers: succinic acid, iron chelate, boric acid, chlorella, potassium, etc. Or regularly add complex additives: Joy, Agricola, Forte, Fasco, Flower Paradise and others. Complexes are for all types of home flowers, or individual ones – ficuses, orchids, citrus fruits.

Important! In winter, the plants are dormant and do not need feeding.Fertilization begins in February and ends in October-November.

Pests

When working with professional insecticides, it is important to observe the frequency of spraying or watering, the proportion of dilution.

One of the most effective means is aktara. It contributes to the sharp disposal of most harmful insects, so if the case is neglected, start treatment with it.

  • Aphid. When foliage falls off from small green parasites, use BI-58, BioExpert, green soap, ExtraFlor.In general, aphids are killed by almost any insect repellent.
  • Midge. ExtraFlor (from midges), Mukhoed, Thunder-2 will help to defeat visible and invisible individuals.
  • Shield. It is most effective to water with actara; BioExpert, BI-58, Doctor, 30 plus will also do.
  • Spider mite. The control mode is the same as in the case of aphids – almost any insecticide (BioExpert, green soap). The best option for the home is the Sunmite acaricide, created specifically to combat ticks at any stage of growth.
Diseases

By starting the application of a suitable medicine in time, you can save even a neglected flower:

  • Rot. Remove affected roots, spray with Zuparen.
  • Powdery mildew. Fitosporin-M will help to restore a healthy state.
  • Rust. It is a fungus, so any fungicide is needed.
  • Fungus in the ground. Try glyocladin.
  • Bacteriosis. Sporobacterin will help.

Important! As with folk remedies, first remove the affected areas.

Prevention of yellowness

Taking good care of green people is much easier than curing the consequences of mistakes. To avoid yellowing, follow the general advice:

  1. Irrigation is the most problematic: always settle for water, and preferably use thawed or rainwater. Most plants should only be watered after the topsoil is dry.
  2. Few cultivars like the scorching sun: protect flowers from direct sunlight.
  3. Rarely does a plant (other than a cactus, succulent) dislike moisture. Take care of sufficient air humidity.
  4. Apply fertilizer regularly during active growth and flowering (usually from spring to autumn, once every 7-10 days).
  5. Check flowers for pests at least 1-2 times a month.

The yellowing of the leaves is more likely not a cause, but a consequence of improper care or plant disease. It will pass as soon as you get rid of the original source of the problem.

90,000 The Rosselkhoztsentr of Tatarstan told why leaves dry on an apple tree

Deputy Head of the branch of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Rosselkhoztsentr” in the Republic of Tatarstan Lyubov Zanina told how to eliminate the causes of drying of apple leaves. This is reported by the information technology department of the branch of the Federal State Budgetary Institution “Rosselkhoztsentr” in the Republic of Tatarstan.

If the leaves on the apple tree began to dry out, it means that something went wrong in the development of the fruit tree. There is a possibility that mistakes were made in the care or the weather conditions affected.Sometimes the wrong landing site may be the cause. There are several reasons why apple leaves dry out.

1. Insufficient sunlight, which leads to disruption of the process of photosynthesis. The leaves begin to turn yellow and subsequently dry out;

2. High bedding of groundwater, because of which the roots do not breathe, rot;

3. Lack of moisture. In this case, not only leaves dry out, but also young shoots;

4. Oversupply of applied fertilizers, especially unripe manure.The roots get burned, they stop absorbing moisture from the soil and direct it to the aboveground part of the apple tree;

5. Mechanical damage to roots or branches;

6. Infection of apple trees with diseases, damage by pests.

If in the spring there is little foliage on the apple tree, and in the summer it began to fall off, then it is likely that the apple tree froze over in winter. Branches on such trees begin to dry out. To facilitate wintering, you need to carry out a whole range of measures: apply fertilizer after harvest; water the trees abundantly.Despite the fact that apple trees are considered frost-resistant plants, when planting seedlings, you need to choose only zoned varieties that are adapted to the climatic conditions of the republic.

Sometimes you can observe the drying of the leaves of the apple tree from the top of the tree. The apical drying of young apple trees is a dangerous sign, since it means that the roots are dying off or the grafting site is damaged. In old apple trees, dry tops indicates that their lifespan has lived and they are dying. Apple trees in the “very juice” and with dry tops are an indicator of “complex hunger”, lack of all the necessary microelements.

If the foliage on the tree begins to dry out in June, then one of the probable reasons is the freezing of the tree in winter, wetting of the roots due to floods or high groundwater levels, an excess of applied fertilizers. Another reason is damage to the bark in winter by hares or mice. The damaged tree dissolves the leaves, using the nutrients accumulated in the branches for this, but if no additional nutrition is received, the leaves begin to dry out, and the branches dry behind them.

If the leaves dry up in August, then the reason is insufficient watering, lack of nutrition, disease or pests.If there is not enough moisture in the wood, you may notice this earlier. Leaves lose their turgor, droop. The tips of young shoots dry out first. It is possible to determine whether a tree is damaged by diseases or pests with a close examination.

What measures can be taken to eliminate the causes:

  • An apple tree planted in the wrong place requires a transplant;
  • If the apple tree dries up due to freezing, the dried branches should be cut off as soon as possible. If tops have grown, some of them are left in order to subsequently replace the dead part of the tree with them;
  • If the leaves dry out due to diseases or pests, protective measures should be taken and the necessary fertilizers should be added.Weak apple trees that do not receive feeding on time get sick more often. The sooner you take measures to eliminate the cause of the drying out of the leaves, the more chances you have to save the tree and preserve most of the branches.
