Wind: Prevention

Protect tender newly planted and exposed plants from the wind with a simple barrier of burlap, ground cloth, or row covering (sold at nurseries) stapled to sturdy posts.

Pound 6-foot lengths of 1- by 2-inch lumber securely into the ground and attach the fabric with a staple gun. Leave space at the bottom to allow air circulation.

Larger specimen plants can be wrapped in their entirety with burlap, cinched, and secured with twine.
