Alternatively, if you have enough space and you're serious about gardening, you may want to consider erecting a green house or putting together a cold frame. Though they have different names, both cold frames and green houses serve the same purpose, and that is to protect plants and shelter them from animals and the ravages of the weather. The structure of the two are also generally geared toward generating or trapping any heat that comes in, making it easier for you as a gardener to grow your favourite flowers (or even vegetables) out of season.
Depending on what kind of area you live in you may need to protect your flowers and vegetables from roaming wildlife who might carelessly tread on or dig up and consume the fruits of your labour. In order to protect small plots of land we offer the Gallagher B10 Starter Kit, which contains a 12V B10 electric fence energiser along with everything else you could possibly need to protect your flowers and vegetables from pests and pets.
