Bubblewrapping the tropicals


A couple of our heat loving plants are suffering a bit in the cold. I was thinking about what to do about it, having moved them several times into warmer microclimates to no avail.

I thought about buying some greenhouse plastic, then remembered that I had a heap of bubblewrap salvaged from an art gallery that was going to dump it.

The result…personal greenhouses for the affected plants – two Tamarind and two Moringa trees.

Just add a couple of garden stakes for a frame and wrap the plant, pot and all, in bubblewrap.

I made sure the plants weren’t touching the plastic and that there was a small gap at the top to help reduce condensation.

I reckon I’m on a winter winner!
