Much better than just the chicken wire during the winter! During the summer it's too covered in plants to see!

Normally there are a couple of Golden conifers on either side of the trough but I moved them closer to the windows after wind bowled one over. As we were also forecast more extreme weather I moved all the pots further in for more protection.

I don't blame you moving them as if its too windy the wind can also burn them

The \golden Conifers don't seem to suffer from wind burn but many of the broad leaf plants certainly do.

Not far from where I live lots of conifers have wind burn so you are lucky shame your broad leaf palnts do though.

Perhaps where you live, (Where do you live?), the wind is stronger & colder. We live on a cold corner that's very exposed & my plants suffer a lot. My standard Fuchsias had all the branches on the head, on the windward side, burned off one year,! They never did recover so I turned them round & put the branches that didn't get killed off over the top of the railings thus giving me more room on the balcony! I turned, what seemed like a disaster, into something of good use! :-))

Warwickshire is about as far as you can get from the sea in this island of ours! You are right in the heart of the country. Must be very cold there in winter.

Here in East Anglia we get some cold weather but I think you, being further inland, get it even colder. I see from the weather maps on TV that the centre of the country is often colder than here. Wrap up warm as the weather is going to go back to subzero from Thursday again. :-((
