Gardening Tips (III)

A circle of twigs about 500mm high (20ins), provides
a better support for border plants than a single stake,
and is less obtrusive.

Save wooden ice cream spatulas, lolly sticks or plastic
knives to use as garden labels. Write on them with a
ball point pen or waterproof marker.

An old hot water bottle filled sparingly with foam
rubber chips is a handy kneeling pad for long
gardening jobs.

If tender buds or shoots become frozen, thaw them
out slowly by spraying with cold water before the
sun shines, otherwise they may get scorched.
