Frost/Winter Insulation for Gardens

By Bonnie929

Here's how I prepare my plants for frost and winter: I used to put stray/hay down around my bushes and plants to protect them and I used to wrap my bushes in burlap. I no longer do that, but storms in southern NH do hit hard, and we drop way below zero. My method may not work for everyone, however. It depends on your zone.

Leaves do make good mulch. Pine needles work well for me also.
