Notes of an observant summer resident

My garden is a large apartment, moreover, a communal apartment, or even a hostel, because many, many different inhabitants of flora and fauna live in it.

Moreover, if beetles, birds, butterflies and toads can independently find the most suitable place for them to live, then plants are deprived of this opportunity. Where they were put, there they exist.

They have to endure everything: the food we feed them, by the way or inappropriate, and neighbors, even very unloved ones. It's not easy for them …

Rose + Garlic =?

There was a rose in my garden. A beautiful bush of the Schneevitshen variety (Snow White). In the spring, young shoots began to grow in her. Once a head of garlic accidentally fell into the ground near this rose. The garlic took root and began to grow, and so quickly, as if trying to overtake a rose in growth. The poor rose, having somehow smelled an uninvited neighbor, at first stopped growing.

And the garlic, on the contrary, fluffed the leaves and stretched more and more towards the rose, to the east, although it would be more natural for it to lean towards the south, towards the sun. Rose, coming to her senses, decided to stay away from this ill-mannered vegetable. Thus, it became clear that the rose strongly dislikes garlic and does not hide her antipathy. You might think she doesn't like his smell. However, scientists say that plants have no sense of smell. And phytoncides have nothing to do with it. Rose, after all, also distinguishes them, but the garlic does not shy away from it, but, on the contrary, reaches for it.

Having discovered such tendencies of the garlic, I pulled it out by the roots. Rose was clearly delighted and immediately began to grow, as expected, upward. After a while, the rose rewarded me with snow-white flowers. And the knees on the shoots, as a memory of an unbearable neighbor, remained until the end of her life. Since then, every year I have been closely watching that garlic does not appear near the roses. P. S. I have often come across statements in the literature that garlic and rose are compatible cultures and get along well with each other. And now I know - this is far from mutual love.

Irga is an unbearable neighbor

An irga grows on the north side of my site. It forms powerful impassable thickets that protect the garden from the cold north winds. Peonies and lilies grow in front of the irga - tubular and oriental hybrids that love warmth. Irga turned out to be an unpleasant neighbor for them.

Common lilac and Persian lilac, growing on the sides of irgi, get along well with it. However, all the stems of peonies located closer than three meters from the irgi sharply deviated from it.

Tubular lilies lay almost horizontally, so they tried to be away from this bush. Eastern hybrids tolerated the neighborhood somewhat easier. The Borovinka apple tree especially suffered from the neighborhood with the irga. Its branches, when they grew up to the irgi, suddenly changed the direction of growth - almost at a right angle, and began to stretch to the north, which usually does not happen with an apple tree, and then began to grow altogether towards their trunk, if only away from the hated neighbor - the picture is amazing. Roughly the same situation happened with a wild apple tree that grew nearby.

Some people don't like acacia

Instead of a fence, I have a yellow acacia growing. Usually it is a beautiful shaved green wall. Near it grow: elecampane, aconite, broad-leaved bell, meadowsweet, Jerusalem artichoke, as well as shrubs: mock-orange, lilac, fragrant raspberry, rose hips, park rose, tartar honeysuckle, as well as edible honeysuckle, red currant.

They all get along well with each other and with acacia. In summer, zucchini grew beautifully near the acacia and bore fruit.

But the gooseberry bushes of the Honey variety do not tolerate the neighborhood with yellow acacia. They are clearly suffering from her intimacy. They leaned as if they were sitting at a low start and ready to jerk away from her.

But the next row of gooseberries, planted further, experiences less, the branches deviated from the acacia slightly. I did not notice any obvious antipathies in the rest of the plants in the garden. So not all plants in the garden love each other. Only they cannot tell us about it directly. You just need to be more attentive to them.
