|When the ground starts thawing in the spring, gradually start removing the covering. Do it by hand or with a gentle stream of water so as not to damage tender buds. Don't remove all at once, let the plant acclimate. Wait to fertilize until after your last frost as tender new growth is susceptible to frost damage. Water well before and after applying fertilizer to prevent burn.
