Frost can make your garden look magical at this time of year. However it can also reek havoc with delicate plants if you haven’t had the chance to prepare them for the drop in temperatures.
‘Did you know the lowest temperatures recorded in the UK were -27.2°C in Braemar, East Scotland in January 1982 and Altnaharra, North Scotland in December 1995.’
‘Did you know that there are three types of frost, Ground, Air and Hoar.’
Take my quiz on Frost to see how well you know this weather phenomenon. Challenge your family and friends too and remember to let me know how you get on.
