If you have the type of garden that is very open to the elements you will have probably noticed how your plants are starting to suffer over the last few years. The reason for this is the extreme weather we are having, and will continue to have as the climate changes. It’s predicted that Britain will become like the mediterranean. In other words we shall have longer wetter, milder and windy winters, snow will be just a memory, and our summers will be shorter and hotter. How can you protect your plants and give them a chance to survive?
One of the best ways that you can achieve this is to create a walled garden. In the past, stately homes would devote an area of garden to this end. Vegetables and exotic plants were grown in these enclosed areas. Whilst they were battling against cold we now face the issue of heat and retaining moisture.
You don’t need a proper wall as such. You can just use a Fencing Cheltenham based company like https://www.greenfieldsltd.co.uk/services/fencing/ to use wood instead. Once you have an enclosed space it will help to maintain a degree of moisture in the garden. As the night falls the drop in temperature creates a due. If the Fencing is high enough it will cast a shadow over the garden and create a shady space. Given the heat that is going to occur, your plants and vegetables will need all the help you can get.
