Hor­ti­cul­tural aide mem­oire No. 44: Pro­tect pre­cious plants

Country Life Every Week - - In The Garden -

Those hor­ti­cul­tural trea­sures that you fear may not sur­vive the win­ter should be at­tended to now. Move­able spec­i­mens in pots can be shunted into a frost-free glasshouse. Plants can be wrapped in fleece and nets, but this can never be a thing of beauty for the next few months. Dahlias and sus­pect peren­ni­als can of­ten be left in the ground pro­vided the tops are cut down and cov­ered with shel­ter­ing ma­te­rial, such as coarse bark. A cloche will pro­vide oc­ca­sional pro­tec­tion.
