Well, now there are some special-looking plants! See the pictures

You can sometimes see special things in the garden. The shape of the plants can be even weirder, the place of growth is really strange, or the root system is completely crooked. Have you come across similar ones?

Carrots are usually oblong and potatoes are oblong, but familiar crops may also produce wild shapes.

The carrot makes diverse and branched roots, in which one can well imagine human features. A potato can resemble a heart or have toes.

“There are small and big ones in the potato, not all of them can be egg-shaped. Its root system is extremely sensitive, and there are numerous potato varieties,” says the garden consultant Aarno Plant.

With carrots, on the other hand, it’s often a matter of irrigation failure.

“Growing is so fast in a long day, and if the soil is dry, the growth rhythm is disrupted.”

This happens especially in box cultivation, because the raised soil space is hotter than the vegetable garden. The carrot is originally a seaside plant and thrives in sandy soil.

“Another reason is that home gardeners keep growing plants in the same places.”

Deviations of the potato do not affect its taste. Abnormalities in the carrot affect its taste if it has been dry and the plant has not been able to take in nutrients.

Specially shaped berries

In berries, it is less common to see noticeable shape deviations, because abnormal individuals fall off already during the growth stages. A butterfly-shaped fruit can still be found in a strawberry bed.

“It’s a birth defect. There has been an anomaly in the fruiting base and a larger than usual and grape-like inflorescence that bulges into a strawberry.”

Deviations are quite common, and sometimes the strawberry can be the size of a chicken egg, says Kasvi. You can easily pop the specially shaped berries into your mouth.

The plant is not always satisfied with its place

Even though the plant individuals are tied to their places, they are enterprising and try to do well in their growing places assigned by nature or man.

The pumpkin looks for support, for example, from a spruce fence, when one is available. It twists its tip into the needles and looks for light on its large leaves.

“The pumpkin goes up because it has wild species in its inheritance and it wants its flowers up so that hummingbirds and butterflies can see the blooms and pollinate them.”

You still shouldn’t try to lift the plant, but you can carefully steer it by turning the head with sticks. It’s not suitable for all species either.

The place of growth can be born by chance

Tree seedlings grow, for example, on the edge of a rat wall. A more unusual apparition is a familiar-looking plant whose scent reveals it to be a tomato. It has grown from a hole in the asphalt to the size of a reed.

“The seed has come from bird droppings. It starts to germinate when the asphalt heats up and food has gone into the crevice of the root wall.”

There is no lack of entrepreneurship in the tomato, but it will not produce a crop at the edge of the rot wall unless it is watered and fertilized.

The root system grows in a circular fashion

In the spring, the young cherry plum made leaves only on one side of the plant. When the plant was dug out of the ground, its rhizome was like a knot. What is it about?

“This is a ten-ton question. Usually, seedling stores want to sell their summer seedlings in the fall, but sometimes some of the seedlings have been in the store for two summers. In this case, the roots of the plant start to go around in a circle in the seedling pot.”

The plant may have looked good on the outside, but sometimes the roots blow up the pot.

The roots of the seedling that go around the perimeter should be cut across with scissors. The tops should also be cut.

“After the cut, the first summer’s plant stings, but when it receives tender care, you get a decent one.”
