Garden of Eden Flower Shop Tip of the Week: How to protect your garden from a storm
Posted on September 30 2015
Hey there all of you Garden of Eden fans and welcome to our latest "Tip of the Week"! This week, with the potential of a heavy tropical storm threatening our greater area for the weekend, we thought we'd share with you a few tips on how to protect your home garden from heavy wind and rain damage. Tips on How to Protect Your Garden from a Storm:
- Create a wind barrier - If you have a fence, we suggest attaching plastic to it and poke holes through it so it doesn't blow out.
- Use the bucket brigade - If you have no fence, you have the option of placing buckets over plants in your garden. You will want to then place a brick or other heavy object on the bucket to keep it held down.
- When in doubt, pull the tarp out - You can cover and low-growing plants with a tarp. Just make sure it is staked down securely in the ground.
