What Plants need Protection In Winter
Not every plant in your garden requires protection during the Winter months. It’s really dependant on climate or mild / extreme winters.
If you live in an area with very little frost your plants may need no protection what so ever other than traditional mulch. In the UK however it’s widely considered some form of protection using the above products are required.
Plant type also comes into the decision making process, perennials are very durable in Winter and are fine as long as the soil isn’t boggy or badly drained.
Newly planted shrubs and trees will benefit hugely from Winter protection but may need less protection once established.
In respect of potted plants we’d recommend several layers of root protection.
