Winter care of Fortunei

I see lots of comments everywhere about 'fleece' or 'wrapping' a fortunei, and understand that I need to protect the centre of the palm as water will get in there and should it freeze, this could be detrimental to the plant. What I need to know is HOW to wrap or fleece the heart - I have tried a couple of times but am concerned about damaging the many fronds which are growing happily from the centre. My palm is only about 10 foot tall so not unmanageable, but a bit tricky to negotiate without being spiked! Please could someone show me photos or demonstrate with pictures in some way, HOW to protect my wonderful Fortunei, it was a birthday present in August this year and I would hate to lose it already!
