Winter onions & garlic

Asked November 2, 2019, 4:43 PM EDT

I live in central Texas and have just planted winter onions and garlic for the first time. Do I need to put a mulch over the sprouts for the few times it freezes? If so can I just use tree leave to cover them.? Thank you

After planting put down a protective mulch of straw, leaves, grass clippings anything like that. With our temps a few inches should be fine.
