Just for those that have not yet wrapped.. very respected weather Web forcast. Ice more likely than snow.. but I guess that's worse for any tenders still out. This weekend looks like a great time to get ready then.

I got two Hellebores today! I must be sensing a loss of plants :lol: Hardy evergreens are the way forward I think.. I hope the Hellbores flower, if winter turns out to be severe!

Nothing to protect really, the only plants that might get damaged are the Agave, Cistus and Convolvulus cneorum but they will grow back!. Otherwise, nothing in my garden which is tender any longer icon_cheers
