How do you mulch for protection?
In the current thread re "Overwintering Butterfly Bush in Zone 5" there is often the suggestion to mulch heavily.
I interested in what this means to you, in terms of winter protection.
Is it more than just piling on lots of leaves on the died back, more cold sensitive perennial?
Or might you first take the step to contain these mulching leaves next to the plant by first encircling the perennial with some "chicken wire" and then piling on the leaves?
I'd love to know the different things you do and use for late Autumn mulching.
