The garden. Plants grow! Some do not like the cold. But it is rarely cold, except when it is, and then they die. Does that have to be OK? No!
But what to do? People have Styrofoam cones they put over roses. But 1: you cannot see the rose inside 2: the rose gets no light 3: roses do not have
much body heat to conserve under covers. But roses are not much to look at in winter. What if you have something that is?
Enter the Clear Garden Globe. BUNCGO artisans have devised this lovely globe of smash-resistant artisanal Lexan. When the flakes begin to fall, lower the globe over your precious kumquat tree. Stake it down securely! Turn on the light inside: you can keep an eye on things in there and the light warms it up. When the sun is out, light will land on the leaves. When the cold wind blows, it will not blow in there. And if your kumquat decides to fruit in February, reach in thru the hatch and pick one!
At night your winter garden will be an array of lit globes producing wonderment in all.
Available in sphere, cube, pyramid, cylinder and egg. Seconds which did not quite achieve any of these shapes also available at a discount.
||You mean a cloche dome? I guess yours does have
accommodations for hold-down stakes, lighting, and an
access hatch. It sounds like it may be a bit larger than
average as well.
||Presumably this will keep cats out ?
||I was thinking that it would be good to have an air hole hatch manipulable from the inside; if you woke up afloat in one you could roll around until the air holes pointed up, then close them for big waves.
