Planting Christmas trees in the garden – the most important tips

If you plant potted Christmas trees or one of the larger conifers, but also the dwarf conifers sooner or later in your garden, there are a few things to keep in mind.

 

Does rhubarb need winter protection?

Does rhubarb need winter protection?

Basically, there are few plants that prepare so well and as early for the winter as rhubarb. Already in the summer, it begins to die back and now in December one sees only a few dried leaves left over the earth-covered rhizome. There is hardly a reason to think about protecting the rhubarb plants during the winter. Obviously, they protect themselves and die back for underground hibernation.

 

Tips for Christmas trees planted in pots

Tips for Christmas trees planted in pots

By far the most important piece of advice for Christmas trees and conifers in pots is this: keep the potted Christmas trees only for a short time in their warm environment. Ideally, the trees are brought into the home on Christmas day and only stay there for a few days. After that, and perhaps even before that, the decorated little plants can continue to spread Christmas spirit on the terrace or on the balcony.

 
Lots of Christmas trees! Of course, from Father Christmas!

As a kid, it was clear to me that the Christmas tree had been brought and decorated by Father Christmas. Consequently, there was never anything to complain about the Christmas tree, for it had been adorned by a true saint! Who would dare to criticise something or just look critically at the tree to even some extent?

 

5000 trees – for a stroke of luck

5000 trees – for a stroke of luck

In mid-November 2017, we planted 5000 fresh apple trees in our breeding fields. Nota bene 5000 different individuals, 5000 different varieties, a wealth of colours, shapes and flavours, which we will then explore in the next few years. For example, crossings in which we try to combine the hanging habit of an ornamental Malus variety with more resistance and better fruit quality. Many crosses are to improve the texture of the Redlove apple and to make them more storable as well. This also includes crosses that seek to combine the lack of seeds in 19th century American varieties with the fruit quality and resistance of modern Lubera varieties. And so on…

 
Gardening tools – now available in the Lubera Christmas-Shop

When caring for plants, good, quality and appropriate tools and equipment are important. This is true for professionals as well as for hobby gardeners. Unfortunately, the right tool is often times missing at exactly that time when it is needed. Does the soil have the right pH? Is the nutrient concentration correct and has it rained enough or should I water my plants? And how do I keep my plants healthy during the winter? The answers to such questions can be found in the Lubera-Shop.

 

Tiramisu using fruit bread

Tiramisu using fruit bread

The combination of fruit bread, pears and figs is the basis for a wonderful, autumn – or almost pre-Christmas – dessert. With this tiramisu you sweeten every rainy, foggy Sunday afternoon and after building the first snowman of the season, the numb fingers that arise can be thawed in a jiffy while eating this dessert.

 

Baltic berries

Baltic berries

We don’t share the Scandinavian love of heading out to the forest to pick wild berries, which is a shame (as is the fact that most of us don’t have a forest on the doorstep that we could pick berries in!). But we can experience a similar joy by growing our own, and a lot of the Nordic berries are great choices for a British garden.

 
It depends on the winter – successfully overwintering citrus plants

How you overwinter your citrus plants – contributes significantly to the successful growth of lemons, oranges, mandarin oranges and the like, and thus to a rich harvest of delicious citrus fruits.

 
The different forms of fruit trees in the Lubera shop

In the Lubera shop you will find all sorts of different fruit trees with different tree forms and plant qualities. It can be confusing buying fruit trees, the same variety can be offered in different variants, and to make matters worse, these variants are also called and handled differently by different plant producers and suppliers. So the question is: what fruit tree varieties are there at Lubera, what do they look like, what qualities do they have and what are they most suitable for?

 
The last autumn offer: all fruit trees are reduced by 20%!

From now until the end of November all fruit trees are reduced in price by 20%.

 
When should citrus plants be brought in for the winter?

The answer is actually short and concise: As late as possible. And here is the immediate second answer: no, do not put them inside now (in the middle of October)!
