I live up north in Newcastle, when will it be safe for me to un cover our Gunnera?



I usually wait until I see signs of life - but I am a bit wary as we have had night frosts this week and sleet today, so mine will stay wrapped for the moment.

I am a lot further south than you!!!

I cover ours with last years old, dead leaves. The new growth just comes through this when it is ready.
