Climate Change also brings wet Feet

According to a recent study of the Potsdam Institute for Climate Impact Research (PIK), our feet will also get wet by 2040 in many parts of central Europe. This will be a consequence of changed rainfall patterns due to global warming, the scientists determined and thus made flooding on rivers the focus of observation once again. Without structural countermeasures the number of persons affected by flooding events in Germany alone would rise from 0.1 to 0.7 million.
It will be worse, if we, according to the study, do not limit anthropogenic global warming to well below 2 degrees Celsius, because even structural adjustments will be difficult then. READ MORE

Why is there so much fuss about poisonous woody plants

Wherever you meet garden owners and people responsible for green areas in the cities and municipalities, you will encounter a great deal of concern about the toxicity of woody plants.  Especially when it comes to children, the issue seems to touch a nerve. This is a development which in the foreseeable future could lead to the disappearance of poisonous woody plants from our environment and thus also the fauna dependent on them.
We would like to try to rehabilitate these woody plants, and we would certainly also like to oblige the citizens to do so, because a little peace and quiet and less excitement can actually work wonders in this issue.
We believe it is time to inform and educate - and not just to cut down the plants. READ MORE

Tree Nursery von Ehren on IPM

Customer service and customer retention is not only a question of politeness, but also one of presence and accessibility. And it's this that the Lorenz von Ehren nursery is addressing, by establishing new locations nationwide. The show garden in Munich was opened in September 2017 and the show garden in Düsseldorf is currently under construction. 
"We are well represented in North Germany with our four locations" said Bernhard von Ehren, managing associate of the Lorenz von Ehren nursery, "but we see ourselves as being under-represented in other parts of the country.  We are now gradually changing that and have begun in the Munich region."
