Japanese Kaki

Japanese Kaki

The large-fruited varieties known from the supermarket are Japanese kaki (Diospyros kaki).

The trees should be protected in the first two years. The winter hardiness of the kaki trees goes down to -15° Celsius. The older the wood, the better the hardiness is and this is significantly better than the figs in our trials.

 
The Red Dot - or the History of Persica roses


One of the greatest innovations in the development of garden roses during the past 50 years are the Persica roses. The roses with the red dot.

The fascinating red dot in the middle of the flowers, at the start of the individual petals, is characteristic of Rosa persica, a wild form of rose that originates in the deserts and steppes of Iran and Afghanistan. It survives there thanks to its deep and extremely extended root system.

 
‘Lowbush’ und ‘Highbush’ Firstberries…

The Lubera® Firstberries® originate back to Japanese Lonicera caerulea seedlings and varieties, which have been collected, tested and selected by the Fruithunters® Lorraine Gardner and Jim Gilbert. The Firstberries bloom and mature somewhat later than the Mayberries, the Siberian blueberries or however the honeyberries (Lonicera caerulea or kamtschatika) are called that have a mostly Russian and continental origin.

 
Fertilise pots and containers, otherwise the plant will get sick from hunger

«Do no fertilise in the garden; you only need to wait for the harvest.»

The most popular country saying, which we like to use in the garden, actually means this: more provides more! "Do you want a little bit more?" The question is good, for example, when shopping for meats, sausages and cheese where food is still freshly weighed, only because the answer is almost automatically "yes". People have learned from their own survival history: more is more!

 
Frutilizer® - the fertiliser that bears fruit

Does there really need to be any more fertiliser? The market for fertiliser is more than just confusing. One has the feeling that each individual plant needs a special fertiliser, which is of course just as wrong as applying much too much fertiliser. This is exactly the real problem: that it is confusing how many fertilisers there are and that one then does not know exactly where and how to apply them…

The Most Important Points About Overwintering Citrus Plants

The care and harvesting success of citrus plants stands and falls with the overwintering of them. In this regard, old orangeries provide important hints. Anyone who has visited an original orangery, such as the orangery in Sanssouci Park or the orangery at Schloss Seehof near Bamberg, knows that the overwintering in these plant houses is cool and bright.

 
The Fruitful Soil of Lubera

How is the Fruitful Soil used in pots and containers?

The Fruitful Soil No. 1, the potting soil for containers is, with its coarse and stable structure, made for pots or containers and can offer a suitable home for the roots of plants. We recommend repotting container plants using Fruitful Soil No.1 every four to five years.

SOW A VEGETABLE SOUP

SOW A VEGETABLE SOUP

This year I will sow vegetables myself. I only need a few empty pots, e.g. a propagation greenhouse or other suitable container in which the seeds can be spread. Afterwards a little patience is required. And love. Yes, with some love it usually works quite well.

 

Why Citrus?

Why Citrus?

If you ask me as a business man, I'm not quite sure. With the citrus plants we offer online, we are entering an unsafe and unknown terrain. We look forward to this, especially since we have been preparing for these citrus plants for one year, but we also have respect. But if you ask me as a breeder and fruit lover, the answer is clear: we now also offer citrus fruits because they close an excruciating gap in the Lubera range, because citrus plants belong to lustful gardening together with fruits and berries – also here in Central Europe.
