Perennial story - when should lavender be pruned?

This is a question that is always asked in sales conversations or guided tours through our nursery, and also completely unexpectedly. If you are standing in front of the phloxes and are just about to talk about something completely different, our customers ask “When should lavender be pruned?” This is an issue that is a real concern to garden owners.

 
Leaf Curl – Breeding Resistant Peaches and Nectarines

After our last report on the subject of breeding, another very topical topic that currently concerns us will be discussed here. Some of you have discovered it in your own garden. We are talking about leaf curl. Lubera® is committed to breeding peaches that are resistant to leaf curl and this will save you from having to deal with this in your garden in the future.

 
Young Potato Plants – how to plant and cultivate

We also offer our entire potato assortment as young plants – in so-called ‘Speedpots’. Speed, because with these pre-cultivated plants a lot of time can be saved during the cultivation and because potato crops are even possible much later in the year.

 
Potato plants - the 5 advantages of potato plants in Speedpots

I already see the raised eyebrows: what? Are potatoes now sold in pots? I prefer seed potatoes...
Well, we have nothing against seed potatoes, which we also offer, but these are more suitable for larger garden beds, for field-like cultivation in the garden.
The Speedpots, however, can be bought and planted individually and they are more suitable for a delightful garden rather than for efficient cultivation: one potato here, one there; they are ideal for pots and the potato becomes a plant to enjoy and experience...

 

My three favourite potato varieties

My three favourite potato varieties

That is hard. Almost unreasonable. Now I have to decide. It was not easy to put together an assortment of nine special potato varieties, but now I have to decide on just three favourites for our garden letter and our garden book. Heart-breaking! Which type of potato should I not mention? Of course, all of the varieties that you find in the supermarket (at least almost all). Not that they are bad, but they are there anyway...there is no reason to now grow them in your garden. But deciding on only three of my nine varieties is really hard.

 

Help! Our tree does not bear fruit

Help! Our tree does not bear fruit

It is planting season. Our nurseries and especially our gardeners are working at full speed. Luckily our customers are, too. They have been ordering diligently and sometimes writing emails even more diligently! And some of these emails make us feel really good: recently, one customer was pleased to note that all of our Lubera® trees, though only planted a year ago, are bearing fruit, but the old varieties purchased elsewhere would not flower or even bear fruit...the question was asked: what can be done to make this situation better…?

 
The bee-friendly plant of the month April - the cherry

Every month I introduce a plant that is particularly suitable for bees. I also use my daily observations in nature and of course I keep an eye on my bee colonies. This month, the cherry wins the race, even if the selection in April was already very rich due to the mild weather.

 
The successful way to care for a Lemon Tree

Is it right to tap birch sap? (A question from the NZZ, a Swiss, German-language daily newspaper)

We confess. Last year, we tapped birch sap without worrying too much. I have a lot of basic trust in trees...but now we have just received such a press question from the NZZ (Neue Zürcher Zeitung), which asks me, if I know that such an intervention (and yes, this tapping is public on YouTube) could harm the xylem. YES, I have to think about this now in retrospect, what we have done and if we can recommend it.

 
Fruity flowering plants - now offered with a 10% discount

Even the practical Romans saw perfection in things that simultaneously have benefits and decorative features. With our flowering fruit plants, we can offer that quite easily or even surpass it: beauty in perfection, which increases with the juicy fruits that are a result from the bloom...

 
The diversity of lemon varieties - comparing four different lemon varieties

One lemon variety is yellow, rather oval and sour. So far so good. But this common definition, which defines our idea of “lemon” down to the packaging of artificial lemon juice in a lemon-shaped, yellow plastic container, is not true. Not at all. Let’s start with the basics: first, our “lemon”, as we call it in English, is in most other languages called “lime” – probably because of the geographical proximity to citrus cultivation and being able to understand something about southern lemons, I mean limes…The word “lemon”, on the other hand, refers to the citron, Citrus medica, in these languages and it is actually virtually unknown by others except enthusiasts.

 

Welcome to the club

Welcome to the club

Sometimes as a small, naive hobby gardener I do not understand this big, dazzling celebrity world of apples! Recently on YouTube I watched a new television report about apples and was amazed again, as always, that the apple is in the centre of media interest.
