Is it too soon to remove winter protection?
It's finally beginning to feel a bit like spring, and although the forsythia won't bloom for another two weeks at least, the buds are starting to form. I know it's too soon for pruning, but I'm wondering when is best to take down the burlap and leaf mulch winter protection.
The two-week forecast has temps down to 25 F on one or two nights, but mostly staying between 35 and 45. The ground is very, very wet right now and there's still quite a bit of snow to melt off. I'm worried about rot.
Any advice is welcome!
Thanks, as always,
