Plant Protection – of the non-chemical variety23rd May 2014 • General • Stephanie Donaldson
Regular readers of my blog will know that I spend as much time constructing or installing barriers to protect my plants from crushing, uprooting or eating by the creatures that share the garden, as I do doing the actual planting. I’m always on the lookout for attractive solutions and I can recommend (and use) the products from both Crocus and from Plant Belles, both of whom have stands at Chelsea. Crocus makes cloches that have a sophisticated beauty as well as functionality, while Plant Belles are perfect for a country garden feel and an informal potager. They also make the rusted metal hurdles that I use along the edges of my borders. If you don’t make it to the show, Plant Belle products can now be bought online.
