Hi - I live 300m above sea level in West Yorkshire. The garden is exposed to drying winds. I have 3 pencil junipers (young - only 2m high) that I want to protect from snow and frost this winter. Horticultural fleece seems to be the answer - but how should I apply it? Should I bind it tightly or loosely? Should I cover the top or leave it open? Should I go right down to the ground or leave the base open for natural watering (the junipers are in "holes" in a patio so don't get water from the surrounding soil)? Thanks for reading this!
