We have snow at the moment, it is magic but I don’t like it as it brings a lot of problems to everyone and my heart bleeds for my poor plants !
I covered my fig tree, hoping it will help to protect it a bit, last Winter we had some horrible cold Winter and my fig tree suffered a lot, it was not untill mid July that it was covered again in leafs where as after a normal Winter it is covered in leafs in April ! I didn’t get ripe figs either last year, the year before that I got heaps and heaps.
HERE YOU CAN SEE MY FIG TREE ON THE LEFT IN THE BACK, COVERED WITH SPECIAL CLOTH,I USED SEVERAL LAYERS OF THE CLOTH, YOU CAN ALSO SEE MY GARDEN TABLE WITH THE PUMPKIN COVERED IN SNOW, THE PUMPKIN IS STILL LOOKING GOOD SO I DIDN’T HAVE THE HEART TO THROW IT AWAY YET
ANOTHER GARDEN TABLE, THE ONE I USE FOR MY SUCCULENTS BUT THEY ARE IN THE GREENHOUSE NOW, NOT BECAUSE THEY CAN’T STAND THE COLD BUT WE HAVE BEEN HAVING REALLY WET WETHER FOR A LONG TIME AND THE WET IN COMBINATION WITH THE COLD COULD KILL THEM
