Mediterranean flair for your balcony and terrace

 

Mediterranean pot plants in our latitudes must be protected from frost in the winter, but the effort is richly rewarded! Since they have adapted to a lot of sun in their native regions, their flowers are particularly beautiful and versatile. The diversity of foliage and growth also contributes to the fact that Mediterranean container plants are among the most beautiful and popular plant groups of all. 

Here in the Lubera® garden shop, you will find some of the most popular Mediterranean pot plants in addition to olive trees, citrus plants, Mediterranean perennials and woody plants. We would like to expand our assortment for you and help you to turn your balcony, terrace and roof terrace into a special outdoor living room with a lot of Mediterranean flair. 

 

Proper care

 

As plants originating from other parts of the world, Mediterranean pot plants require special care. However, they are by no means particularly care-intensive. On the contrary - their properties make them easy to care for. Since they have adapted to hot summers in the Mediterranean and other warm regions, they need far less water than one might think.

 

The right location

 

The most important thing is therefore the sunny location. A location in shade or semi-shade is not conducive to the thriving of the plants and for long-term productive growth. When placing the plants at their site, always make sure that as much sunlight as possible hits the leaves directly. Indirect, diffuse or weakened light from window glass does not have the same energy content as direct sunlight. From spring to autumn, place the plants on sunny spots on a balcony, terrace or roof terrace. In the winter, in a sheltered and frost-free area, enough light should arrive in order to ensure a minimum supply of light. 

 

Watering and fertilising

 

Since Mediterranean pot plants have adapted to dry locations, they are particularly sensitive to waterlogging. Therefore 'less is more' applies when watering. It is best to water with the help of a moisture meter, which indicates whether the soil is dry or not. Only when the upper half of the soil is dry can you start watering again. 

As potted plants, Mediterranean container plants require a regular supply of nutrients. The background is that the supply of nutrients from the natural environment, as we know it from the garden, is limited. The fertilisers from the Lubera Frutilizer collection are ideal. Instant Citrus is suitable for citrus plants and olive trees, while Instant Bloom is the fertiliser for Mediterranean flowering plants. 

 

Overwintering

 

As non-hardy plants, these Mediterranean container plants must be placed in a frost-free area before the winter. They do best during overwintering when they hibernate at temperatures between 5° and 10°C. Then the plants can overwinter with ease, where they can cope with - for their conditions - less light. However, they still need light even in the winter. A large window or plant lighting that provides sufficient brightness is sufficient. 

Overwintering lasts from about November to the beginning or middle of April. During the transition periods in October and March/April, you have to pay regular attention to the weather forecast. Once the plants are place in the their winter quarters, checking for a pest infestation is a regular task. Typical pest infestations in winter quarters are scale insects, mealybugs and spider mites.
