Hi Geoff,

I live in Fife – on the Est coast of Scotland. Can get pretty windy here! Its great to communicate with an enthusiast from the same land mass 🙂

A follow up question for you and Morten;

With the suggestion of a blanket/ fleece – do you drape this directly over the foliage of your trees or do you somehow suspend it? Would a plastic bag be an option – I’ve heard of this being used to also promote budding (AKA the black bag method)?

We have an old bird Avery that is built onto the outside wall of our garage. I am thinking of converting this into a cold frame of sorts. Is the main purpose of a frame for frost protection? I doubt that it will prevent some freezing when below -3 temps.

I really appreciate the insights.
