A welcome to Theresa Verge Fortin .
i understand . i am having the same concerns bitter cold ,then spring , then cold , and almost no snow . i have plants that wher allready having a hard time this is going to make it wose . and last year we had a frost in march that killed off all the apple blossoms . so i am concerned about this year .
I do cover tender stuff with leaves... The last two falls a Priest in my small town has allot of leaves and puts them in giant strong bags and I'm so grateful for them. I covered lots of plants, but with the freezing and thawing plants don't like this treatment. My Hybrid Teas and Climbers are probably the plants that will suffer, I have them next to the house and of course they keep a little warmer that way. But the problem here this Winter is that it was already cold, like about -10 or -15 below and then it got warm like about 40 or 45 above and what little snow cover we had melted. Now were way down below -0.... Plants have to be tough to make it up here.
what plants are you most worried about Jan ? that is way to cold esp without any snow for protection . I am thinking we better find cheep ways of mulching .
Hi all. Here I am in Northern Minnesota and its been very cold and not allot of snow at first. So I wonder what plants will make it through. Up near the border in Ely, Minnesota yesterday morning it was -34 below. brrrrrrrrrrrrr
well we here in New York certainly are not getting our usual snow fall i am used to at least 4 foot snow banks . but i have not had one that is even 2 foot . a foot maybe where the snow plow went through but that is not enough . for the amoungt of water we need to make it through . till next winte i pray for a lot of rain .
i forget how to spell it correctly ,widipeka i think any way it is tha free on line encylopida . I just went there for information on wintergreen it may help .
Rain, Rain, go away as everything is flooding here in Minnesota....
Hi Mary Ann, I want to tell you that I also have a Japanese Lilac tree and its about 9'tall,in full sun and I have never had a bloom. I planted it at least 5 years ago...... I live up in zone 3 and we have allot of them around that do bloom. Maybe they have to be much older, I don't know really anything concerning this tree.
