Bamboo Cloches to Blanket Your Garden

January 7, 2013

Would I feel guilty in winter, curled up under 50 layers of blankets in bed, if my most sensitive garden plants weren’t covered too? Possibly. Of course that’s not the only reason to use a bamboo garden cloche; they look great, too:

Above: In the garden, cloches can provide enough protection to keep tender plants or new seedlings alive until spring arrives. Line the the cloches with newspaper to create a warm microclimate for plants in extreme cold. Bamboo Cloches, available in three sizes at prices ranging from $40 AU to $60 AU from Karen Wagner.

Above: For US and UK gardeners, woven bamboo Tunnel Cloches and Dome Cloches are available in five sizes; for prices and shipping information, see Gifts and Gardens. For more garden cloche inspiration, see “The Beauty of the Garden Cloche.”
