Winter hedge trimming

Posted: 19/11/2017 at 10:14

Is it ok to reduce height and depth of a Leylandii hedge at this time of year? It is just that I am having other works carried out in the garden and if poss, I would like this done at the same time. Or am I risking diseases etc.

Paul B3, sorry, I have no idea what it is called, only that it is orange and I bought it in Homebase before the summer. I remember they had a yellow one also. Still looking for tag! I do keep them but you know what it is like when you need something!

I have just brought my beautiful potted Abutilon into an unheated greenhouse for the winter. Do I need to put bubble wrap around the pot please, or is that just when pots are left outside? Thanks in advance.

Hi everyone, thanks for replies, sorry for being so vague but try as I might to keep hold of tags I can't always locate them. I have managed to identify one of them as Imperta Cylindrica Red Baron. This is a beautiful specimen with red and green foliage. The brown bits definatly look like they have died off , not seed heads.

This year I have been tempted by several lovely looking grasses which I have in pots. They have started looking a bit messy (brown whispy bits on the end). Should I tidy them up by cutting the ends off? or do I cut right them back for winter? Will they return to their former glory next year?

I have purchased some horticultural fleece (to go over pot plants) and I intend to get some bubble wrap to go around the pots. My question is, when do I start this procedure? and do I have to remove the fleece during the day to let in air/light?

Hi, anyone had any experience in getting rid of these from a lawn?

I am aware that you can buy protective fleeces, but I would love to hear of some of the other useful, inventive things that you use to protect fragile pot plants in Winter. Many thanks
