Woody plant collection

My garden is located in Schneverdingen, Lower Saxony, Northern Germany. The climate at the border of the USDA Zones 7b and 8a is characterised by changeable, usually mild and sufficiently humid summers with occasional hot days with temperatures above 30° Celsius.

The winters are also changeable. The low pressure areas in the Atlantic are frequently a determining factor. Prolonged frost seldom lasts for more than 1 to 2 weeks. Temperatures below -15° Celsius are exceptional and do not occur annually. Now and then, there are slight late frosts until the end of April.

The main field of my woody plant collection is evergreen broad-leaved woody plants. The genus with the most species and cultivars is Rhododendron. One of the main themes is experiments on various species at the limits of their winter hardiness. I overwinter species that are absolutely not winter hardy to protect them against frost.

The following list of the woody plants in my garden also includes species, that I do not have in my collection at present, but with which I have several years' cultivation experience.
