You can also use bubble wrap around pots or use up any packing filler products from your home deliveries. Another big winner, if you’ve got lots of pots on your patio, is to move them all together and put fleece over the whole lot so you’re not wrapping them separately.
My top tip is to make sure that the pots aren’t solid with water by giving them effective drainage. Otherwise, if the container has made a seal where the pot meets the patio, the water can’t drain out and becomes sodden.
Frost will then expand this water by freezing it and it can crack your pots. The best thing to do is use pot feet. These are little standings or stanchions that you put your pots on top of so there’s a clear gap between the bottom of the pot and the patio, to keep the water draining freely. If you don’t want to spend a lot of money on them, you can use wine corks for this – so start saving them up!
