Organ transplant

Now is your last chance to plant shrubs or shrubs, especially evergreen shrubs and shrubs. It is best to do this at this time so that they can last a while during the wet season and before the real cold sets in. “When transplanting, it is wise to provide the new planting hole with good (planting) soil. It is also important to ensure that the plant has enough space. So make the hole slightly larger than the root ball itself and fill it with fresh soil.


Fruit trees are best pruned in early spring, but there are also some trees that can be pruned in September or early October. “If necessary, you can still prune walnut or chestnut trees now. This also applies to the plane tree. It is currently still warm enough to close the wounds. If you prune these trees later in the spring, the tree may bleed.”

Sowing and planting

Sowing and planting are also part of it. You can still plant or replant borders. “Think about spring pants in particular.” Even plant bulbs!

Lay the grass

But since the climate is currently changing so much, it is important to keep a close eye on whether your garden is actually moist enough. This is what is sometimes forgotten, according to Lukas Lens. “Check the borders regularly to make sure they are not drying out. If so, it is wise to mist them well.
