The bush in the open meadow
It’s the beginning of October. There are hardly any blossoms left on the bush out in the meadow. It will probably be another two months before the protective walls need to be set up. In the meantime, the bush can harden off and become accustomed to cooler temperatures.
Oleanders in the garden area The bushes along the south wall in the garden area have developed very well – dense foliage all the way to the ground. After having been totally cut down early in the spring, they couldn’t bloom yet, even in the summer. Now, however, a few blossoms are visible – actually, the first ones for this year. Next year there should be a sea of flowers!
Oleanders in front of the main house
The bushes were cut back severely at the end of the previous year; now they are just as big! The protective house must be correspondingly large this year.
