Cold spell coming up... Which of these need protecting?
I'm getting a bit nervous about this upcoming cold spell! I'm in North Norfolk and they are predicting lows of 2 - 3C overnight, as well as potential sleet and hail. I've moved all the pots I can into the shed, but there's a few other bits I'm not too sure what to do with. Everything has been a rush this last month or two (first proper year of gardening) and so I have not got around to getting any horticultural fleece yet
Partly so that I know whether I need to relax or stay up all night worrying, and partly to find out what else I can do to help my plants, I wondered if anyone could offer advice on the following with regards the upcoming weather....
- Apple and Pear trees. 3 year olds but quite small. Most are in flower.
- Strawberries, in the ground - not pots. About a quarter of them have flowers.
- Onion sets - only put out yesterday!
Seeds - only recently sown - of:
- Leaf beet, chard, spinach, radish, rocket... Most aren't showing yet and those that are are VERY small.
- Rasberries, tayberries and wineberries.
Which of these need help and which will be ok? And of those that need help, any thoughts on what I can do? I'm happy going out with my head torch on!
Many thanks, and wishing you all a non-destructive cold spell
