Q:

Do I need to apply a winter mulch to my landscape plants?

A:

To reduce the effect of alternate heaving and thawing, apply a winter mulch after the soil freezes. When mulch is applied to a frozen soil it will keep the soil consistently cold. Mulch will also help to retain soil moisture. The mulch layer should be 2-2 1/2 inches thick and can be composed of leaf compost, straw or other material.
