What need a plant user to know about plants?

Perennial plantings should not only be elements created just for decoration, but also elements, that can play a biological role in a manageable way.

If we today shall be able to really work properly with perennials in a larger context – both as to their demands of maintenance and their role in the biodiversity – we must have knowledge not only through photos of their close-up appearance at prime time, but also their spreading
behavior, need for division, cutting back, staking and not the least – their water and soil demands. If we want to be able to introduce the perennials in nature-like or semi-wild contexts, we need plants that fit in here.
