Press release from: DIY Matters

For those who don’t know which potted plants will endure the cold winter months, DIY Matters offers some helpful advice to see you through to spring.

Potted plants can bring colour to a yard or interior that looks bare.

Porches, patios and empty spaces in the garden, could benefit from container gardening.

But pot plants require special care to make it through the winter months - particularly if there is a harsh winter.

Protect your potted plants from the frost by drying out by mulching and using a Frost Protection Fleece.

It is important to choose plants that can endure the cold - such as tulips, daylilies, irises and other tubers, roots and bulbs. Try clipping the plant down to about one inch above the soil and mulch the soil.

The plants should be placed in a cold but protected place - such as a garage, shed or cellar. A deck or porch will work equally well.

Plants that can endure the winter season brilliantly include broadleaf evergreens, which can naturally protect themselves from frost.

Other plants that last all winter in a pot and add a winter element to gardens include holly - dark green leaves with red berries - and dogwood branches which add a vibrant red colour a winter garden.

An interesting addition to winter gardens is ornamental grass - rising up from the snow.

Using a Frost Protection Fleece is one of the most innovative ways to protect your plants in winter.

After protecting plants from the frost, spring will arrive and no plants will be damaged - leaving gardening to concentrate on using landscaping fabric and weed control fabric.

In winter, frost protection is a necessity. In spring, weed membrane and landscaping membrane are vital to maintaining a healthy, weed free beautiful garden.

As well as frost protection, DIY Matters supplies landscape fabric, weed control fabric and garden membranes.
