Frost. I did not expected that. But the weatherman is unrelenting. Medium to severe frost is predicted for the week to come.
Because my garden is close to the sea with its relatively warm water, it rarely freezes. So I have allowed myself to grow some frost-sensitive plants. But that makes it tricky now. There is no other option than to guard these plants against the frost.
Fortunately, I once received a large amount of non-woven fleece cloth from my brother. That comes in handy now. I drape it over the containers with flower bulbs, to protect them from wind chill.
The containers with Anemone coronaria have been doing great so far. There is even a blue flower emerging! I wonder whether these Anemone are frost resistant So I search the Internet and find that they are sensitive to frost. So they all must be placed in my plastic greenhouse for some extra protection. I don’t want to lose them.
Next, the sensitive perennials in the garden. I wrap all frost-sensitive plants in fleece. The Dierama looks like cotton candy! But the cold wind blows the fleece from the plant straight away. So I have to do the Dierama again and additionally place a plastic container over it. Now the wind cannot damage my plant any more.
Finally, the potatoes, which were sprouting in the windowsill of the barn, have go back into the fusion cupboard again. Everything under control I hope.
Do you have as much frost stress as I do?
Anyhow, have a nice week.
