Hibernate shrub veronica in the garden
Most types of Hebe are only partially hardy. You can tolerate a maximum of minus five degrees, and only for a few days.
If you want to overwinter shrub veronica in the garden, sprinkle a thick layer of mulch made of lawn clippings or leaves.
Cover the plants with fir branches or brushwood. However, this does not always help in an unprotected location. If the winter is very cold, you have to expect that the shrub veronica will die in the wet and cold despite winter protection.
