Every week our social media team reaches a few hundred questions about our favorite hobby: the garden. Most of them are quite easy to answer for the editorial team of MEIN, but some also require some research effort to be able to provide the right answer. At the beginning of each new week we put together for you our ten Facebook questions of the past week. The topics are mixed - from the sowing of container plants over lawn tips to pruning of magnolias.
Facebook: The top questions of the calendar week 16
1. When may I put my cylinder brushwood out again?
By mid-May, the cylinder cleaner (Callistemom) should still be in a bright, not too warm room. After the ice saint he can go to the balcony or the terrace. Do not place it immediately in the blazing sun, but first on a half-shady spot, so that he can slowly get used to the new environment.
2. My camellia has thrown off all buds. What can be the cause?
Camellias respond to different factors with bud shedding. The cause may have been a few months ago. It may have rained a little and she did not get enough water at the time of bud formation. But it may also be that the camellia was too warm, after all, we already had summer temperatures in many places. Even a lack of humidity in winter quarters can lead to bud release camellias.
3. My cherry laurel has dry leaf margins that peel off after a while, and small holes in the leaf. What is he suffering from?
Your cherry laurel is likely to have shotgun disease, a fungal disease. Typical for the disease are holes in the leaves and the apparent Buchtenfraß, as it is known from the weeping weevil. You get the disease under control again with the use of fungicides.

4. Lichen is formed every year on our eco-plaster. What can I do about it, except to remove it with the pressure washer?
If you want to get rid of the lichen, you can put a competitor plant, such as moss, between the eco-plaster - if this is a nicer alternative for you. There are also biocides in the trade, which remove the lichens in the long term. Environmentally friendly, however, is the regular removal with water.
5. My peach trees have the ripple disease. What can I do about it without using chemical agents?
The ragweed on peaches occurs earlier in the year. Treatment with chemical sprays is not allowed in the garden. You can prevent the plant disease by the use of plant strengthening agents (for example, Neudo Vital fruit fungus protection). However, this strengthening measure is only promising if the funds are applied up to five times from the threshold of the buds.
The symptoms of ruffling disease are unmistakable: The fresh sprouting leaves of peach and apricot show conspicuous ripples and bulbous, usually reddish colored blisters
6. I was recommended to cultivate grass Patentkali. Is it advisable to deploy in the spring?
Patentkali is actually a classic autumn fertilizer. Used in the spring, it makes with its high potassium content but the straws shatterproof.
7. We sowed grass two weeks ago. When do we have to fertilize for the first time?
With a special starter fertilizer, grass seedlings have a better nutrient supply and thus better starting conditions on a nutrient-poor soil. If the seed has already germinated, you should not use it anymore, but only apply a fertilizer after 10 to 12 weeks. It is important that the lawn is fertilized evenly throughout the year.
8. How deep is lavender cut back in spring?
When cutting lavender, the one-third / two-thirds rule applies. The first, somewhat more radical pruning takes place in spring. Here the plant is shortened by two-thirds. After flowering, the lavender is then cut back by about a third. So the plants repel and become pretty bushy. After the pruning, apply herbicidal fertilizers (usually twice a month) for a month each week to encourage expulsion.
In the summer after flowering, the lavender is cut back by one third with the hedge trimmer
9. Do I have to trim our magnolia so it does not get too big?
In principle, magnolias usually do not have to be cut because they have a very regular crown structure. If your copy has become too big, you can carefully round it up a bit.
10. How do you pull a wisteria as a high tribe?
Blue rain can easily be pulled into the bucket as a high stem.Take a grafted young plant with two shoots and a sturdy trunk that you support with a stick. Cut the ends of the two shoots slightly to stimulate growth. Then cross the shortened shoots and fix them with a string. If the head and side shoots are regularly cut back a little, a compact flower crown is created during the growth in three to four years. Planting time is now in the spring.
