When it’s icy, snowing and the ground is frozen, there’s not much gardening to do!
Dust off snow that’s heavy on branches which may snap under its weight but leave the blanket over plants to insulate them.
Keep the birds coming into the garden by feeding them high-energy snacks.We made bird food from lard, bird-seed, figs and apples and poured it into toilet roll holders to hang in the trees. Birds like blackbirds, blue tits and robins are the organic gardeners’ friend – they eat all the pests like aphids and caterpillars that munch our plants!
Heart Gardener Jo ventured to clear the last of the cosmos which was hit by the frost.
