WOLF Garten Calendar Tips February

Frost will then be less of a problem

When it is really cold we withdraw into our houses, but evergreens such as thuja (arbor vitea) have to stand outside in the frost without any protection. If the cold is too severe the leaves or even the shoots discolour and die quickly. For that reason, cut away all dead twigs and foliage so that the plants can produce shoots again there.

WOLF Garten Calendar Tips August

It does not help much to use the watering can little but often, instead it is better to water less often but more thoroughly so that the water seeps in and the roots grow deep.

WOLF Garten Calendar Tips September

Once it is no longer so hot and it rains more, that is the ideal time to divide and plant out your bushes and shrubs. First cut off all the plant parts near the ground and dig out the roots. Then shorten them and divide them into several small pieces with a spade. Water them well once they have been planted again - and that is it! Now your "new shrubs" will have sufficient time to grow out before winter comes.

WOLF Garten Calendar Tips October

Brightly coloured autumn foliage looks picturesque on your lawn. Unfortunately, it robs the grass of the light that it urgently needs. The results are less colourful: bald patches and the risk of fungal infections. For that reason it is better to take your leaf rake and clean your lawn of leaves. The collected leaves are nonetheless useful: as protection from delicate shrubs and bushes.

WOLF Garten Calendar Tips November

Make your garden look nice once again before the winter comes. Separate overhanging grass from the edge with the lawn edging spade and remove the narrow piece of lawn with a spade. Use a long board as a sort of ruler so that straight edges do not get curved or go off course. In this way you can quickly produce a new "sharp" lawn edge.
