Here are some English Garden tips for the cold weather
Remember to raise all your pots and containers off the ground so that they are able to let the rain to drain away. Nothing kills plants faster then being waterlogged.
Don’t cut down all your perennials – leave them until the spring because plants such as teasels and sedums look lovely after a sharp frost or sprinkling of snow and the old growth helps to protect the plant from the cold.
As long as there is no frost you can plant pot grown evergreens in your garden.
Remember please - never walk on your lawn if there is a heavy frost on it as this kills the little blades of grass.
There is still time if you haven’t already done it to pot up chives and parsley so they can come inside and provide you with fresh herbs all winter.
