Talkback: How to protect plants over winter

Bournemouthgardener and John Mackay, thank you for your advice.  I will try both wrapping the plants in the method suggested and moving the plants near to the house wall and keeping my fingers crossed

Talkback: How to protect plants over winter

Posted: 19/10/2012 at 21:28

Last year I wrapped up my 4 Cordylines which are in pots.  I carefully gathered up the leaves on each plant, loosely tied them and then wrapped in garden fleece.  To my great disappointment all 4 plants suffered damage over the winter.  When I unwrapped them they had rotted.  3 of them now have small shoots at the base but one is dead.  I'm not sure what to do about protecting them again this winter.  I don't have a greenhouse or cold frame.   I purchased a cheap plastic greenhouse from Wilko but vastly under estimated the size of the pots (much to my husbands amusement).  Does anyone have any suggestions?  Should I pack them with straw and then wrap in fleece?
