Hi,

I planted a shrub border in june, where i am the snow is quite heavy and has settled on one of the shrubs so much that the branches that grow skywards are now pretty much at a right angle. will this damage my plants or will they be ok?

I'd suggest that if you're worried, you should shake the snow off before we get a thaw/freeze which will make the snow stick to the branches.    Best way is probably to use a long-handled garden tool/ broom or similar & tap each branch on the underside so that the snow falls off but you don't get covered in it!
