Watch out for wind damage

With the strong gusty winds, branches can easily be damaged on trees and shrubs so look out for signs on brittle trees like Robinia and birch; the weight of foliage on Wisteria and climbing roses can break wires, coming free from trellises and supports: you may need to do some emergency tieing in until the weather is kinder, or the main stems will snap.
