PROTECTING YOUR VULNERABLE PLANTS
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.
