Been a while since my last post. All the planting I did earlier in the year is still looking good except for my buddleia which snapped off at the root during the high winds we had in October.
I've been busy all autumn but as it was such nice weather last weekend I planted some evergreen shrubs which include bay tree, orange pyracantha, mrytle, arbutus marina & aucuba japonica. However now I'm worried I was a bit silly as if we get a frost are they likely to all die??
I've put a thick layer of bark chippings around them, is this enough to protect them while they settle in... hopefully before we get hard frosts.
I'll take some photos to show you the progress.
