Lubera stops plant deliveries to the UK
Due to Brexit, we are not able to deliver to the UK. We are working on a solution on how we can continue to bring a wide range of Lubera plants to the UK and directly to our customers' homes in the future. However, such a solution will not be available before 2022 or 2023.
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.

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)!

Would You Like a Bit of Caviar?

A few weeks ago I cut off a still immature lime from a finger lime tree and tried it. Finger limes are still so rare here in Central Europe and on the internet I have so often read about the exciting fruit content of these really very unusual, cucumber-shaped citrus fruits that come from the Australian jungle, that I couldn’t wait to try it any longer!


You are, I hope, accustomed to some madness at Lubera. But this news needs a little bit of time to get used to: we are starting to produce citrus trees at Lubera and have therefore become the probably most northern citrus tree nursery in the world!

How did we come to this decision? Don’t citrus plants grow better in the south? As always, there are of course several reasons for producing citrus plants at Lubera in Buchs, Switzerland:

  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.

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, strawberries and citrus thorns in Markus’s latest video

Markus was live from Germany in this week’s Lubera UK Facebook video (which you can watch now if you missed it), and although he was talking about citrus thorns, roses and strawberries, the plants are the real stars of the show!

Mandarin Orange Trees

Mandarin orange trees are wonderful citrus plants that have space on every terrace and every balcony. They live a little bit more in the shadow of the more popular orange and lemon trees. But the delicious fruits, which can be eaten directly off the tree, deserve more attention. Therefore, mandarin orange trees have a special place in Lubera’s citrus assortment.
