More Diversity Among Our Raspberries!


There are two types of raspberries that are important for horticulture: the famous European garden raspberry Rubus idaeus and the black American raspberry Rubus occidentalis (the variety Black Jewel).

 
Homemade Raspberry Vinegar

Some people claim that vinegar is unhealthy. Acetic acid attacks the gastric mucosa and irritates the gastrointestinal tract. And these claims are correct, of course. Yes, of course, if you drink several litres of vinegar daily, it simply has nothing left to do but corrosively attack all of your internal organs.

Vinegar helps against constipation and heartburn; it regulates your blood sugar level, protects against calcifications, normalises cholesterol levels and provides the body with minerals and vitamins...yes, vinegar is one of the oldest natural medicines we know. It also tastes great, especially homemade raspberry or strawberry vinegar. Here’s how you can quickly prepare your own:

 

THE 4 TYPES OF FIGS

THE 4 TYPES OF FIGS

It is not possible to divide the fig types. They are probably formed one after the other in the order described below, but they still belong together; the later type is inconceivable without the earlier type, and, above all, they cannot be reproduced and further developed. In our region, however, quite generally north of the Alps, only cultivated figs can be grown, since the fig wasp has not advanced as far north as the fig itself. All Lubera Gustissimo figs are cultivated figs!

 
  Citrus Plants: the Right Care for Rich-Bearing Crops

Citrus plants are not hardy and therefore must be protected from frost during the winter months. So it depends on the winter and the summer location whether the citrus grows, blossoms and fruits. An unsuccessful overwintering regularly affects the growth in the spring and summer. Then the disappointment is great when the harvest is poor or fails completely.

 
A SONG OF PRAISE FOR THE STRAWBERRY 'SCHWEIZERHERZ'


I know, self-praise stinks. But in this case it smells lovely, and is therefore permissible.This June, on a Sunday morning (of course!), I was in our strawberry field, and immediately, on the fast-warming morning, I was surrounded by a sweet strawberry fragrance. Admittedly, it was of something too intense and too sweet to be desired. But I do not want to complain: in the end, this fragrance, which was not volatile at all, but very physical and present, was a cloud full of sweet strawberries and it is almost more lasting in my memory than the actual eating experience itself.

 

Burgeoning British Brambles

Burgeoning British Brambles

Unlike many of our European neighbours, the British don’t have a widespread culture of foraging for wild foods. Foraging has experienced a bit of a resurgence in recent years, as a way of really ‘getting back to nature’, but for most people I imagine their only real experience of foraging is picking blackberries.

 
The history and biology of the fig: the fig, mankind, wasps... and me

There are endless questions, gardening questions and also ... let's say: other questions concerning the fig. Why does the fig I brought back from my holiday not produce fruit? Where and how does the fig flower? Does the fig need a pollinator? What are common figs?

 
Lubera 'Lowfruits' on The Beechgrove Garden!



The well loved BBC gardening programme, ‘Beechgrove Garden', has been growing some of our ‘Lowberry’ range in their wonderful miniature fruit garden.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=REaDaWDggS4

Our raspberry ‘Little Red Princess’ has been planted straight in the ground on the show, and has started suckering, so as noted by the presenters, it probably is better grown in a container. All of our ‘Lowberries’ are suitable for pots. A planter with good water drainage should always be used, this can be improved with additional holes and gravel in the bottom of the pot.

Our blueberry ‘Little Blue Wonder’ is looking wonderful on the show and promises a good, bountiful harvest! One of the most compact blueberries: it is only about 50 cm high. From the growth characteristic, it is more broad than high, making this compact blueberry perfect for dense area plantings or also as an underplanting for blueberries. So perfect for the ‘Beechgrove Garden’ miniature fruit area!

We look forward to seeing which other of our fruits will turn up on ‘Beechgrove Garden’!

 
Three Lemons For the Sick Person

Today I feel ill: I have a sore throat, headache, a slight fever, I am tired from the ibuprofen and exhausted from the antibiotics. I have zero concentration and inspiration…The Lubera garden newsletter, however, must get out punctually. What should I do? I’ll go to the supermarket to buy lemons...

 
From flowering to harvesting –  here’s how to harvest oranges and lemons yourself

Citrus fruits are among the most popular fruit and ornamental plants worldwide. It’s no wonder, due to the fact that they not only look good but also produce delicious and healthy fruits. And the good thing is this: you can harvest your own citrus plants in your own garden. In this article, I would like tell you how to it with citrus fruit from Lubera.

 
Roses, raspberries and the native/foreign plants divide

In the last Facebook video show before the summer break, Markus talks about native v foreign plants, and about how some of our traditional and favourite fruits are actually immigrants. And we get to see a tiny bit of the Lubera greenhouse, as he explains what we need to be doing in our fruit gardens this summer.

 
When Pears are Harvested and When They are Rripe

The maturity, more precisely the harvesting maturity and the eating ripeness, is the most difficult topic when it comes to pears and there is a good reason for this. In the case. There are good reasons to say that this topic makes the pear a bit difficult, because in the case of the pear fruits, the harvesting maturity and the eating ripeness are, in most cases, not only far apart from each other, but difficult to establish. The pear is a climacteric fruit; it matures on the tree, but also after the harvest, under the accelerating influence of the ripening gas ethylene, which it produces by itself, but also by other fruits (e.g. during storage, but also in the fruit bowl) .
