Winter weather is often a cause of concern for gardeners. Here are 7 top tips that will help your plants to deal with snow.

Tip 1

In snowy conditions gently brush snow from evergreen shrub & tree branches. As the weight of the snow can damage branches.

 

Tip 2

Don’t worry about your spring bulbs. They’ll go to sleep for a little while & wake up when it’s warmer.

Tip 3

Move any tender plants into a greenhouse or under the eves of your property to avoid wind damage.

Tip 4

You can protect plants in containers in garden fleece or bubble wrap to protect from additional frost.

Tip 5

Make fresh water available for birds. Water is particularly important during the winter when natural supplies may be frozen.

Tip 6

Make fresh food available for birds. At this time of year, it can be scarce.

Tip 7

Take photos and enjoy your winter wonderland.
