Preparing to protect our plants over winter.
The sudden drop in temperature and strong winds recently has got Richard thinking about how he is going to protect some pf his plants over winter. After all we spend all year taking care of our plants. We spend a lot of money on having these plants that we don't really want to lose over winter (annuals o course being the exception).
Because of this Richard has evaluated what plants he has on his allotment and vegetable garden and deciding what can go in the greenhouse for protection or what other materials can be used to protect his plants.
All available on the podcast.
