Winter colour: dramatic contrast

Snow is good for the garden because it acts as a winter mulch. The worst thing for the plants is when the soil is constantly freezing and thawing. It can dislodge plant roots and weaken the plant. Before the snow came I mulched around some roses using leaves I had collected in autumn. It will act like a cosy blanket. In spring I will scoop them up to compost them.
