Useing fleece against frost.

Patrick Hickey asked 12 years ago

I have purchased a roll of fleece to protect, amongst other things, Jasmine, on a north west facing wall. Once on can I leave it or must I cover every night?

Fleece offers a limited measure of protection against frost but can be useful in frosty times, and more than one thickness is better. It can be left on for a few days or a couple of weeks because it admits light to plants underneath, but tends to blow around.

White-flowered jasmine is not hardy but yellow-flowered winter jasmine is and does not need protection.
