20% DISCOUNT ON FAST-FRUITING BERRIES PLANTS

I’ll admit it: my favourite season is spring. No you do not misunderstand me. In the spring, I am more attracted to the garden, especially when it comes to getting things done. Why is it that in the spring, with the longer days, one has more energy than in autumn? Autumn is the time for harvesting and autumn is also generally a time for gardening.

I can hardly imagine something better than spending a Sunday afternoon in the garden during the autumn months – not working, just relaxing, with a nice drink, something to read, perhaps also with a camera in hand waiting to capture some autumn beauty. (I will not mention the cigar today.) I am politically correct.

- But planting? Does it have to be done now?

- Yes, it does!

If you plant any type of currantgooseberriesblueberriesautumn raspberriesFirstberries and Pointillas from early autumn to mid-October, you can expect a good harvest already next year, i.e. in the next 12 months!

At the beginning of June, our Firstberries bear fruit, followed by gooseberries and currants. Afterwards, the blueberries can be harvested and, finally, from the middle of July to autumn, the autumn raspberries, which bear fruit in the same year on one-year-old canes. And all these marvellous plants will soon be fruiting next year, and finally, in exactly 12 months from now, the last berry shrub, the dotberries from the Elaeagnaceae family will be ripe.

"Why does it not take very long for the plants to bear fruit?", you ask...

Because the plants were already planted in autumn! If you tear or break up the root ball before planting, this will allow the roots to grow better into the garden soil during the autumn months and also in the winter, if the soil is not frozen. The plant is then ready in the spring to give its full performance. When the same plants are planted in the spring, it takes a lot of effort for them to accomplish everything at the same time: growing, weather stress in the spring, flowering and fruit development. And yes, impatient gardeners, who always look impatiently, hungry and greedy at the plant, are very annoying. ;-)

And because we produce the berry shrubs (currants, gooseberries, blueberries, Firstberries, Pointilla) in large pots! This means that the plants are one year older than most plants that you will find at home improvement stores or garden centres, which are mostly in 2 L or 3 L pots.

These plants have a bigger label, but what good is that if they still need a year or two to grow? No one, and certainly not an ambitious gardener, can tolerate that!

"Why can you give a 20% discount off of these plants? Do you earn too much?" 

That's a good question. You should ask my tax consultant! But seriously: these are all plants that we produce ourselves in our tree nursery in Switzerland (in Buchs) and in Germany (Bad Zwischenahn). So since we have cultivated the varieties ourselves, the young plants have been propagated after the first year and again after the second year. Yes, exactly, such a plant is usually three years old when you plant it! But back to the question: because we do all these things ourselves, we can also afford to thank our newsletter readers by offering such a discount. And we produce the plants to sell them as well. ;-)

"Is there also a 20% discount on the Moreberries, where you sell two complementary varieties in one pot?"

Oh, I almost forgot. Thank you for asking. We are consistent and will give a 20% discount on the Moreberries if you buy them from now until mid-October! But please do not ask me now if it should rather be a 40% discount because there are two plants. ;-)

"And one more thing: can I use Tells bonus points at the same time and also benefit from the plant discount?"

Hmm, that hurts a little bit. But yes! This can be combined! The plant discounts are displayed directly at the plant descriptions, which now show a new promotion price; you will see the price right next to it (for example, HERE). And the Tells bonus points can be redeemed in the shopping cart at the final purchase; these are then deducted as a discount (again: 1 Tells means 1% discount) on the total price.

And if you no longer have any questions, then please do not hesitate to check out the fastest berry plants that will bear fruit in the coming year:
