Ok, Just transplanted some Head Lettuce, Cabbage, and Broccoli and
Cauliflower a week ago and now we have a forecast of about 4 inches of snow.
Should I cover them with something? if so what? I am know that the coldness
will probably not hurt them, but I was more concerned with the weight on top
4 inches of snow. HA HA HA! We just got 90 cm (36") last week and another 30
cm on the way. Check out the photo's at
BTW I don't think that 4" will be heavy enough to do any damage but you
could cover them with plastic buckets or cut-off pop bottles.
Snow actually acts as insulation, so whatever's under it is actually
warmer than plants exposed to the air. I shovel all my rose beds under
as much snow as I can move (about a four-foot deep blanket this
winter) and with no other protection, I haven't lost one in three
years to winter kill. Put a rose pot or bucket over them and shovel
snow on them as soon as there's enough to shovel, they'll be fine.
