Video: Work In The Autumn Garden, Sheltering Bushes For The Winter In Your Garden
Hydrangea. I planted a cutting of a tree hydrangea and for several years I could not wait for flowering. The shoots that grew over the summer did not have time to ripen and froze over the winter, and the next year they grew back again.
To make the branches woody, in September I cut off all the leaves, bent the stems to the ground while they were flexible, and covered them for the winter at the end of October. Now I have a nice bush with lignified branches, it blooms and hibernates without shelter.
Spirea macrophile. The stems of this type of spirea can freeze over the winter. In the fall, I bend and tie them down, throw on top of an old jacket, a film and press everything in arcs.

Grapes. Several years ago I bought a bush of grapes, about which the seller said that it hibernates without shelter. I planted him. In the spring, the bush blossomed very late, and during the winter all the grown and not ripe shoots froze. And so it was for several years, there was no question of the harvest. Now I cover him for the winter.
In early October, I cut off all the leaves from the shoots, remove the harvest remnants, cut off the unripe shoots not according to the rules described in the books, but leave a large supply of them in order to cut off the frozen part of the vine in early spring.
I twist the vine on the ground with a ring, tie it up and press it with bricks to the ground so that it does not bristle. In wet weather, I cover it with a film, and in dry weather I remove the film so that the vine dries up and becomes woody. At the end of October, in dry weather, I spread pieces of film on the ground under the vine so that moisture does not moisten the vine from below, I throw old jackets and coats on top of the ring.
After that, on top of everything, I put a large piece of thick film, tuck it together with the jackets under the vine so that moisture does not get inside the shelter, then I press it with bricks from above so that it does not blow away by the wind.
Raspberries. In the spring I acquired several varieties of remontant raspberries. According to the new cultivation technology, remontant raspberries need to be cut off all for the winter, and the newly grown stems will bear fruit next year. I decided not to cut the branches for the first year, let a strong root system grow. Back in September, I bent down the green flexible branches and tied them, cut off the leaves, added peat, put arcs, covered them with dense spunbond and left them for the winter. If you do not cut the leaves for the winter, then the buds under the shelter can vanish.
