Q.freezing temps

Zone boothbay, Maine 04537 | nortoni added on April 2, 2016 | Answered

Our overnight temps here in midcoast Maine will be plummeting to the teens for the next few nights. My daffs are budded, tulips up 5-6″, forsythia ready to pop, garlics up 5-6″ Help! Do I attempt to cover them and, if so, with what?

Thank you!
