Plant Protection

Asked April 6, 2016, 10:24 AM EDT

For freeze, ice, snow, etc protection of small plants ie: boxwood, azaleas, etc., what should I use to cover them, especially at night? Is burlap wrap good for this? Thanks

Any porous material,like burlap would be perfect. What you want to avoid is plastic, this would magnify the temperature and damage the plant. These materials would also provide protection from the cold wind as well as temperatures.
