Garden: Preparing for winter

The clocks have changed and it’s dark, and cold, and my motivation for most things is pretty lacking

However unless I fancy heating the greenhouse and moving things to be in it – which I don’t, then the garden needs some preparing for winter so things can stay in situ

This primarily means bubble wrapping the clematis and passion flower as well as adding an extra layer of woodchip to the pots they are in

The rhubarb and big rose get manure – unfortunately shop bought borderline-faux stuff for ease this year, then all the beds get a good layer of woodchip

oh yes, and clearing up the nasty leaves blown over from next-door’s nasty diseased tree. I wonder if next-door are as diseased as their poxy tree, if so perhaps they and the tree will die naturally next year; that would be very nice indeed
