For avid gardeners, the looming cold weather can mean tough times ahead.

So, as the new season approaches, experts at DIY Matters are here to help - with some helpful advice for those worried about the harsh conditions wrecking their favourite plants.

Some people might think that slow decaying of their plants symbolically represents the inevitability of death.

That's heavy - and an unhealthy way to look at the effects of the cold.

Instead, gardeners should look at winter as a time for plants to have a rest. Every good childcare provider knows that everyone needs a nap once in a while.

The best thing a gardener can do to prepare them for winter - is to get plants ready for bed.

One of the best ways to ensure your garden remains preserved is to use DIY Matters' Frost Protection Fleece, which offers the ultimate defence against cold weather.
