One of a Kind Christmas by Lexi Post

Welcome to Mary's Garden. Are you all ready for Christmas? Before I turn over the blog to Lexi Post, here is our weekly Garden Tip. I borrowed this from Telegraph:
Raise plants in pots off the ground to prevent roots from freezing, remove saucers to ensure plants don't stand in water, and wrap the whole thing in bubble wrap or hessian if you want to be doubly sure. But note that in very exposed areas you may already be too late to save marginally hardy plants. Don't walk on the lawn when it is frosty, as it damages the grass. If you have plants in the garden that already look frosted (ie drooping, blackened foliage), and are not sure what to do, leave them alone. They will probably die back but, if perennial, they will reshoot in spring. If they are frost-tender it's too late to revive them, so start making plans on what to plant in the gap next spring. This is best done indoors, by a roaring log fire, with a selection of seed catalogs.
