Brrr, after a rather mild Christmas across many parts of the UK, the chill has finally caught up with us. 

And this morning, as we defrosted our car while our breath rose in front of us, we were only saved from the cold because we were wrapped up tight in our jackets.

But what about our plants? Don't they deserve jackets so that they can make it through the winter unscathed too?

As the Royal Horticultural Society explains: "Cold, wet, windy winter weather can damage trees, shrubs and garden structures such as trellis. Improving shelter, staking plants, mulching, wrapping pots and careful matching of plants to places will help to prevent this kind of damage."

Well, now you can wrap them up just as well as yourself, because we've found these handy Haxnicks Frost Protection Easy Fleece Jackets for plants on Amazon, and they're currently 21% off, down to just £6.99. 

Why we rate them:

Made from high-grade 35GSM polypropylene fleece, simply pop this robust jacket over the plant and secure with the drawstring around the base - and, hey presto! You can sleep soundly knowing nothing is going to get at your beautiful blooms.
