Every year, more and more exotic and unusual plants appear in our gardens. And although many of them are planted only for decorative purposes, a lot of the fruits of such plants have already been used by our hostesses and traditional healers.
Schisandra chinensis can be found quite often in our latitudes and is valuable due to its liana-shaped species, whose edible berries are valuable not only for their beauty, but also for their beneficial properties. Planting schisandra chinensis requires compliance with a fairly impressive list of rules, so before purchasing seedlings of this plant, think again if you can properly care for this oriental plant. it has long been known. that the East is a delicate matter.
The most important rule for Schisandra chinensis is good soil drainage. Sometimes you just need to fill a small bed, which artificially create conditions for a kind of dryness of the soil. It is necessary to plant Chinese lemongrass 50 cm apart, while the vines should be from different species or different places. Such a trick will significantly increase the yield, unless, of course, you are planting an ordinary garden lemongrass.
Planting schisandra chinensis implies planting seedlings to a depth in which they grew earlier, i.e. the root collar of the plant should be above the soil. The vines themselves must necessarily provide a support on which the plant will grow, and although Chinese magnolia vine is quite shade-tolerant, it needs the sun to bear fruit.
In general, caring for Chinese magnolia vine is quite troublesome, because this plant is very fragile from roots to shoots, which means it is exposed to a huge number of unfavorable external factors.
