Frosty Weather

Frosty Weather
Over the holiday period us gardeners if we had any sense stayed inside but whilst we were inside the garden was still growing.  Even the frost is good for the garden! It kills off the bugs but unfortunately only the foreign ones!
Our British pests can usually survive even fairly cold winters.
I have heard a rumour that you can freeze slugs and when you thaw them they can still be alive! I can’t prove it and she that must be obeyed has banned me from putting slugs in the freezer to find out!

Frost has some other benifits, it can break up soil and especially if you dig  clay  soils and leave the clods for the frost to do its work! It works by freezing the water in the soil and expanding and breaking the soil up.
This very  action can cause a problem called “frost heave ” where newly planted plants get lifted by the frost. When the frost is gone all you need to do is firm the place back in its place with the heel of your boot.
Anyway, stay warm.
