So, the winter’s here and I’m wondering how should I best protect my plants from the frost? Are there any products on the market I should try?

"The best thing you can do is add a good layer of mulch to your beds and pots, which will protect roots from frost during winter, drought during summer and will help feed plants as it breaks down!

For more delicate plants, try a cold frame or wool and insulate the outside of pots."

"You don't need expensive products depending on type of plant a muslin or cotton canopy played on that ground with a good layer of shredded cardboard or straw with a layer of chippings on top will give enough protection from perma frost destroying your roots and again wrap up loosely leaves and stalks 4- 6 inches above ground level to protect foliage a light net muslin wrapping let's enough air circulate if loose enuf to let plant breath so not to tight but grouped close with a loose wrapping. Release early spring ex posing ground when outdoor temp starts to warm."
