Trying to stop the devastating north east wind from damaging plants


These are all my spares after planting out all my exhibition plants.

I might use them for hybridising. but over this week (from 10th March) 25 mph biting easterly ,which are known to kill the plants, have been kept at bay by erecting windbreaks held by some clips market traders use to attach tarps to provide shelter from rain .

Good news it is now March 16th and most seem to have come through without damage.

Only one cultivar raised in Scotland seems to have betrayed its ancestry and has suffered some stem damage.

This is A H Wallace, but it is such a lovely Florist Fancy Pansy that hopefully it will survive in the cuttings taken last year.
