... this can be hard work: As a landlord, you have to take care of own and adjoining public pavements/sidewalks. In Hamburg, snow has to be removed directly after the end of the snowfall, and in case of ice, you have to grit the pavement immediately. Pavements have to be cleared from 8:30 (Sunday 9:30) until 20:00 in the evening.
I was given a small palm tree (I think it is a coconut palm) which I planted in the garden. I read somewhere that it is enough just to shroud it with bubble wrap to protect it from frosts and snow but I am not sure if that is going to be enough. Should I dig it up and put it in a pot indoors for winter, ot is it best to leave it undisturbed outside but just minimise the risk of frost getting to it? Any advice would be highly appreciated.

Do you want to decorate your home, your house or your street? Here are some tipps by th Hamburg Tenant Association: Tenants are allowed to decorate apartment, windows and balcony of their home. Outside the own flat, there are some points to keep in mind: - The decoration has to be secured, so nobody is hit on the head by falling Santa Clauses. - For very big decorations, landlord should be asked (and can say no, within reason). - Neighbours should be able to sleep, so don't let the lights twinkle and blink all night. - Careful with scents - not all your neighbours have the same taste. All this is court ruling - and good news is that courts ruled that advent whreaths at the door are allowed. Happy decorating!
