Which plant / variety
is suitable for my climate?
The desire to expand the garden as a living room and to bring Mediterranean flair into the garden, even to harvest tropical fruits
is trendy. Global warming is also giving us wings
Cultivate Mediterranean plants in Central Europe.
Whether a plant is thriving and the local winter
able to survive depends on the hardiness of winter
also of a number of location factors such as sun exposure, soil type, soil structure, humus content, nutrient supply,
Water supply, shoot closure, weather conditions in autumn and winter, duration of exposure to temperature, humidity and, most importantly, the wind or wind protection.
Often the question arises whether the plant is hardy in one place.
There are considerable climatic differences within Austria.
In connection with the Austria map or the Central Europe map by Heinze and Schreiber (1984) it can be derived
in which zone the plant should survive a normal "average winter" with a probability of at least 80%.
(Based on the USDA map, US Department of Agriculture).
The stated winter hardiness only refers
on planted fig bushes.
The regional and microclimate
Not just the macroclimate, but
The regional and microclimate conditions are also often decisive.
Think of sheltered areas
Relatively mild areas can be found in valleys
of large rivers, the heat islands
of the big cities by their buildings
also act as heat storage. Industrial influence also heats up.
The result is a desert-like urban climate.
Lower winter hardiness zones than in the surrounding area are in unfavorable valley locations
with cold air lakes often.
These zone divisions are only guidelines and do not represent an absolute value.
They are an important guide / indicator for the possibility of cultivating plants in certain regions.
Location example zone temperature label color
Lunz 6a -22 ° C (-23.3 to -20.5C *) red
Klagenfurt 6b -19 ° C (-20.4 to -17.8 ° C *) blue / pink
Passau 7a -16 ° C (-17.7 to -15 ° C *) purple / green
Vienna 7b -13 ° C (-14.9 to -12.3 ° C *) orange
Bozen 8a -10 ° C (-12.2 to -9.5 ° C *) yellow
* The temperature data refer to:
_ the mean annual minimum air temperature.
_ Plants planted out, not on potted plants.
With winter protection, plants can also survive in a cooler zone
With the help of winter protection measures (covering with leaves or fleece), the site conditions can be determined
Improve it so that plants that are more sensitive in one zone can get through the winter unharmed.
Planting in front of a wall - higher total heat - more yield
However, the total heat during the growth phase is also decisive for a rich fruit yield.
An east to southwest wall can increase growth and yield many times over.
In addition to the reflection of the radiation, this "sun trap" takes over both in summer
as well as the function of wind protection in winter.
Over the course of the year, planting on the east side is even preferable,
because the morning sun activates the plant a little earlier every day.
