I'm sure you get this question every fall, but I couldn't get a clean
hit searching historical groups.
Bulbs we planted in early November are poking through in early
December! We're in mid-Connecticut and I expect it to get much colder
before it gets any warmer.
Any suggestions for protecting the tender bits?
No need... they'll figure it out themselves. <g>
You may get some browned leaf tips in the spring, but the flower
buds are still down in the bulb with most bulbs.
If you get a cold, dry, not-very -snowy winter, consider shoveling
some snow on top of them (just a few inches) when there is snow
on the ground.
Well the little bit of growth they are making is making them stronger
and showing you that they have developed a root system.
No need for worry.
A top dressing of sifted compost won't hurt.
