I was certain that it was going to get warmer and warmer each day, as it normally does each year, so I planted some bulb flowers such as Tulips, Crocuses, etc, and some of them are already starting to bloom a bit. I also got some flowers, not sure what they are but look like Pansies a bit.
Unfortunately, it started to snow yesterday morning. After about 7 hours of snow, I came back from work and my flowers were under about 3 inches of snow! So I covered each of the Pansie flowers with milk jugs or plastic bags. The bulb flowers I left without covering them.
Every 5 or so hours l go outside and brush off all the snow on and around the pansies and the bags. This morning I undug the bulb flowers.
I was wondering do I really need to do this? I noticed that the soil wasnt frozen under the snow, and that's and so good thing. Before the snow came, a thin layer of soil was frozen often.
I was thinking about getting a large piece of plastic cover and covering my flower bed that has the bulbs growing in it.
Any suggestions are really appreciated!
