Frequently asked questions

  • How can I get the planters well over the winter?
So that a planter for winter hardy potted plants survives the cold season, you should pay attention to this property before buying. It is important that the planter is not made of porous material that soaks up with irrigation water, which in turn bursts at freezing temperatures the planter.
  • How can I provide support for winter-hardy plants at extreme temperatures?
It is always important that the plant is protected to the ground from the cold. This can best be implemented by placing natural materials or bubble wrap under the container plant as insulation for winter so as to keep out the ground frost. Otherwise, a jute sack draped around the plant, which is loosely tied, can protect the plant from overly frosty temperatures. Plastic sheeting should never be used as insulation, because under these heat accumulates heat and moisture, which causes the plant to rot and mold.

Worth knowing about perennial, hardy garden plants

Most people have perennial plants (see also annual and biennial plants) in their garden, without being aware of it, because shrubs and trees are also part of it. Generally, the term perennial plants for the garden refers to all those plants that can be used for several years. Some of them need protection from the winter, while others may remain in the garden in winter.
Frost protection for perennials
  • Perennial plants for the garden, which remain in the garden in winter, often require special protection against the frost. For this you often have to put a layer of leaves on the ground around the plant or protect them with straw and a jute bag from frost damage.
  • In potted plants that are perennial, you often have to provide the tub with straw and a jute sack to protect the delicate root ball from the frost and cut back the plant itself.
Perennials who prefer to spend the winter indoors
  • Among the plants that must be protected in winter and kept in the house, certainly the geranium. Here, however, it is enough to bring them to a dark place, for example the cellar. A casting is not necessary at this time. The following year, remove dry leaves and plant the flowers in fresh soil.
  • For plants that are supposed to be hardy, but are often not sure, one should consider the necessity of storage in the apartment. This mainly includes the oleander.
  • The Bougainvillea, which enjoys great popularity on more and more terraces, lasts for many years, when it is kept outside in the summer and in the winter in the winter.
Frost germ among the perennial
  • Some plants can already be used as seeds and may need frost to germinate properly. This includes, for example, the wild garlic, which can be used for several years, but must be sown in the fall, to drive the following spring.
  • Even trees like the maple or the beech are frost germs. If you want to grow a hazelnut shrub, you should keep some hazelnuts in the freezer for a few weeks.
Popular perennials and woody plants
  • The perennials are in many cases flowering plants that should be cut regularly as bushes and hedges, especially in spring to remove wild shoots.
  • Roses are available as climbing or bush roses and groundcover. The same care instructions apply to everyone. When climbing roses should be noted that you put a rose vine as a climbing aid, bush roses must be stabilized occasionally and brought in shape by a rope. It is important to cut back roses well in the autumn.
  • The same applies to trees. Whether it's lilac or an apple tree, both do not require much care, but must be protected from pests and cut in the spring.
