How are you protecting your plants from winter?

(I cribbed this post from jersey Girl to start a new thread, hoping also to activate this forum. :)

Last year I lost so many perenniels. Big disappointment. so what I'm trying this year is - I fenced in my favorites with a wire fence, and filled the space with leaves.

don't know what if any good it will do, but I had to try something.

I think I lost so many plants last winter - besides the main factor of course of a brutally cold winter, was that many were new to the garden that year.
I think if they had been established for many years, some of them might have fared better.

Hoping for a less extreme winter.
