PRO­TECT­ING YOUR VUL­NER­A­BLE PLANTS

- Gardening · Botany · Ecology · Hobbies · Biology

TEN­DER plants are at risk out­doors. You can im­prove sur­vival chances by mulching their roots.

Use bulky ma­te­rial such as com­post, wood­chips or hedge clip­pings. Ten­der climbers can be pro­tected with hes­sian or fleece cov­ers, fixed to the wall.

Low plants can be pro­tected with small conifer branches or hedge clip­pings. Push the stems into the ground around plants. Bend tops over to form a dome.
