    Frost protection for flowers


    What steps could I take to protect flowers should there be frost in late spring? I can think of the more extreme examples too like the beast in the east. If something like this happened again what could I be doing to prepare flowers for such a scenario? And again just for late spring frost in general? I have plenty of plants in my garden which blossom during the spring and I’m concerned that they’ll endure damage or even die should frost him them unexpectedly.

    "Yes. Cellophane is derived from cellulose, a plant material. It can be added to the compost heap, where it will be safely broken down. You must be sure that it is cellophane that you are adding to your heap as many other plastic products can have a similar appearance but would not degrade on the compost heap."
