I have a container olive, bay, myrtle and blueberry trees.
I spent last winter rewrapping them every few days after the wind unwound the horticultural fleece. No amount of pinning and string would stop this.
This year brain wave.. I got the sewing machine out and made giant fleece bags which just I popped over the top of the plant and secured round the base.
Question. I live in village Suffolk and the plants are sheltered near the house how many layers of fleece, and therefore bags, per plant to protect from frost?M
