Winter is fast approaching, and it’s time to think about protecting the most fragile plants in the garden. Last winter, we had two periods of frost that did not suit some of the ferns in the fern wall. All these ferns are hardy, but after talking to the nurserywoman at Ecoute-s’il-pleut, it seems that the location of these containers exposing them to the cold and also to the wind caused some losses.
So today I unhooked the 28 containers (!), put them on the ground in a corner of the pergola and covered them with a thick coat of … fern (collected in the nearby forest). Let’s hope they like it.
