Normally, the garden keeps a kind of hibernation in the cold season. However, there are still shrubs and shrubs that really bloom in the winter.
The winter in Germany is like a surprise every year, because while it is freezing cold in other areas, in this country can still prevail temperatures above plus. Normally you leave the garden in winter time in peace, but there are woody plants that can delight us in December with their flowers. However, it takes a bit of care, so you can experience the "second spring" as well.
Do not buy small plants
The first thing to consider when buying winter hardy trees is the size of the plants. Small specimens are usually much cheaper, but are also much more susceptible. They do not have enough strength yet, the danger that they will take is great.
Pay attention to the correct planting time
Furthermore, you must observe the correct planting time. Although it usually means that you can always plant, except it is too dry and too hot, with young woody plants such as hibiscus, maple or beard flower, you better keep strictly to the planting time in April and May.

Protect trees in winter - straw and fleece helps
Help the shrubs survive the cold winter by covering the plants with straw or a fleece mat. This will wrap the wood. This should be done at the very latest in December and not removed too early. In spring, when the days are already warm, there may still be night frost. By the way, a layer of mulch or brushwood is sufficient for smaller trees. As long as there is no frost, it is always good to water the trees once more.
