This is the third plantation of the year, "autumn plantation", and plants adapted to this season have been chosen, which will allow them to be maintained until the Christmas season.With the aim of beautifying the green areas, the Torre Pacheco City Council has begun to plant more than a thousand flower plants adapted to the conditions of the Mediterranean autumn in avenues, flowerpots and squares of the municipality.
The STV Gestión staff dedicated to the maintenance of parks and gardens in the municipality is in charge of this work.
This is the third replacement of seasonal flower plant that is carried out for the Torre Pacheco City Council this year.The Councilor for Parks and Gardens, Mari Carmen Guillén has declared that STV is carrying out one of the plantations established by the contract for the maintenance of green areas, in this case the one corresponding to the autumn planting.
On this occasion the chosen plant has been the Antirrhinum majus, commonly known as snapdragon due to the morphology of the flowers.
It is a spike-shaped flowering plant with a great variety of color in its flowers.
This plant blooms at the beginning of autumn and, depending on the environmental conditions of the area, it can keep the flower between two and three months.
In this way it will remain until the Christmas campaign.From the park and garden maintenance service of STV Gestión they explain that, along with the seasonal plant replacement work, work is also carried out such as removal and gouging of the plantation soil, as well as replacement of a layer of substrate in the case of flowerpots.
In this way the soil is sanitized and aerated, preparing a good environment for the root development of the new plant.
Once the plants are placed, a settlement irrigation is carried out on them and then continue to carry out maintenance irrigation regularly, so that the plant is fully hydrated."It is important to maintain and beautify the image of our green areas", said the Councilor, adding that "these plants will fill the flowerpots and squares of the municipal term, with the illusion that they are to the liking of all residents and also of all those who visit us ".In addition, he has reported that the City Council will continue with all the necessary gardening work for the proper maintenance of our green spaces, as well as the pruning of trees in streets throughout the municipality.
