Frost/wind protection for regenerated Camellia.

We planted this Camellia last year, out of it's pot. This was part of a regeneration program following my first question back in April last year. It looks very healthy and thought we would protect it against the frost and snow.

Your welcome Alan, I see you've done a lot of work.

Yes Paul, nice of you to notice. We tried to get the garden free of weeds, before Christmas. I have also put a mulch of bark on the beds to supress weeds. I have lowered the hawthorn hedge, with the neighbouring farmers field by 50 cms, to make it easier to maintain. Also had a problem with a mole, wrecking my lawn, but I managed to sort that.

That looks like a good idea I am going to put something together to protect a newly planted camellia -Thanks for the idea - Jane

Thanks Carole and Jane. So glad I did this just in time, prior to this freezing cold spell. The Camellia is so important to me, as it is a layered cutting from my Mum's garden. May she rest in peace. I hope it works for you Jane. I had a look at the Camellia today and the 15 flower buds are actually swelling. Hope it works for you Jane. Incidentally Jane, the black clips, holding the plastic to the canes, are the ends clips, cut off a ladies trouser hanger. I guess clothes pegs would do as well.
