Four ways to protect hardy container plants
Group pots together
Placing pots closely together will help them insulate each other and protect their neighbours from the elements.
Raise up on pot feet
Raising containers off the ground by balancing them on pot feet prevents the compost from becoming waterlogged.
Keep watering evergreens
Because evergreens continue growing in winter, plants still need watering in dry spells.
Wrap up pots
Wrapping hessian, fleece or bubble wrap around large pots stops the roots freezing, and terracotta pots from cracking.
