Snow

2016/8/4 9:47:21

Question
Hi, Can snow help protect roots of a Hydrangea?

Answer
While snow is a reasonably good insulator... it's volume is not predictable in most areas.

A better choice would be seedless straw or mulch. In very cold conditions, you can build a wire cage to place around the plant giving it a buffer of about 6" and sill that will straw being careful not to snap the tips of the branches.
