With the mild weather last weekend I took the opportunity to go out and collect some garbage that had gathered around my fence and bushes in my backyard. I was a little shocked to see that many of my plants are already starting to “spring” up. This week is so cold I am worried that they will all freeze and die. What should I do?

If your greenery is already up, don’t worry, and don’t do anything to try and help them from freezing. They may bloom a earlier than normal this year, if the warm weather returns, of if we get back to seasonal temperatures, they may bloom pretty much on schedule. Horticulturists advise not to cover shoots with any kind of mulch in an effort to protect them. Mother Nature will take care of them.
