This is my kind of weather -5C blue sky and sunshine. Freezing Pots, make sure your outside pots are on pot feet or off the ground so that the water drains out easily they will then be less likely to split. Having free draining soil in your pot reduces the risk of blistering and cracking as the soil will hold less moisture, reducing the expansion when it freezes.

Fleece your bedding, cover up or move to shelter your tender plants, Olives, Camellias, Phormiums, Cordyline, Pittosporum and Ceanothus if out in the open, not against the wall can be vulnerable.

Our seed potatoes are in stock in the shop so that they don’t freeze.

We have got sheep in the field grazing the grass, they will only be there for a few weeks. While they are with us the gates are tied up, we did have an incident last week with sheep all over the A5 due to the gates not being shut. The Dog walking is still open.

Look forward to seeing you soon
