Protecting your Garden in the Winter
Winter weather can have a variety of negative impacts on your garden, however, hard landscaped gardens are effected far less. Most commonly used paving stones are resistant to such weather and can last for several years before the signs of age begin to show. A good tip is to use a liquid sealant, sold at many garden centres, which helps reduce the impact that icy weather conditions can have.
Other tips for protecting your plants and tress, against icy conditions, would be to put down 2 inches of mulch or tree bark compost. This will help keep frostbite from getting to the stems and roots of your plants. Wrapping ferns in straw, securing with chicken wire or string, will also help combat the frost from getting to the roots.
