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.

I also use only leaves. I pile them around my potted plants to protect them from the north and west winds, it helps to keep them from drying out.
