Siberian Snow To Hit Britain

Weather forecasters are already predicting another hard winter for British gardeners in 2014. Just like the start to January 2013, when snow lay on the ground for weeks, it looks like another bitter January is on its way.

Cold temperatures, icy winds and hard frosts are expected to affect the UK. Snow up to 4 inches could fall and this will obviously bring the warm start to the season to an abrupt end.

While the weather remains mild it is a good time to get the garden ready for heavy snow.

The forecast for the weekend looks good, as a high is predicted to settle over the UK. It may be the ideal time to survey the winter storm damage and prepare for the ice and snow.

You can also have a look at the winter gardening shop on Gardensite, for products related to this time of the year.
