Preventing winter damage
Cold, wet, windy winter weather can damage trees, shrubs and garden structures such as trellis. Improving shelter, staking plants, mulching, wrapping pots and careful matching of plants to places will help to prevent this kind of damage.
Timing: Mainly in autumn, before the winter
Difficulty: Easy to moderate
