Q.I planted plants 4 days ago, now we have snow

Zone kansas | leah gordon added on April 13, 2014 | Answered

I planted lobelia, alyssum, geraniums, and petunias 4 days ago. Now we have snow. I covered the geraniums and some of the plants with trash bags for protection. Do I need to cover the whole garden with sheets or plastic drop cloths? Or can they survive 6 to 8 hours of cold followed by snow that will melt by noon?

Do what you can and hope for the best. You may have to replace some of the plants. This crazy weather has us all perplexed.
