  1. What is your secret for protecting the flowers from rain and wind damage? Mine were wiped out on the weekend from all the storms.

  2. Hi James. If we hear a warning about damaging weather, we quickly push thin metal stakes into the ground around the flowers and herbs, throw a medium-weight plastic sheet over the stakes and weight it down with a couple of rocks, or whatever is handy. It only takes a couple of minutes and is usually quite effective.
    Regards, Barry

  3. Good tip Barry, we get wiped out every year like James was saying.
