Frost and wind can lift and loosen new plants during bad spells of winter weather, damaging roots and allowing ice to form around the stem. Check them every couple of weeks and re-firm if necessary, tightening tree ties if necessary so they're held firmly into their supporting stakes.

Plant of the Week: Poinsettia
Firm favourites on every gardener's Christmas wishlist, the brilliantly showy 'petals' on these exotic-looking house plants are in fact bracts (modified leaves) around much smaller central flowers. As well as traditional red, poinsettias now come in over 150 varieties and colours from creamy buttermilk to magenta pink.
Caring for them is straightforward. Find a bright spot out of direct sunlight, and keep them warm - at least 13°C day and night. Water only once the surface of the compost begins to dry out, and sit the plant on a tray of damp gravel to keep humidity high and help those fabulous bracts last even longer.
