Correct watering of ornamental bushes in winter
Ask a gardener
Question by: Barbara S.
Dear Mr. Kötter, we live in Breisgau, one of the warmest locations in Germany. For some weeks now this winter we have had consistent high pressure weather conditions with no rain and a lot of sunshine during the day. Should we water our plants – and how often and how much? We are particularly fond of our “Japanese umbrella pine”, but also love our lilac, garden hibiscus, climbing hydrangeas and cypresses. Perhaps you could give me some tips as to correct watering over winter. Thank you very much in advance, and greetings from Kaiserstuhl.
