Protecting Viburnum from Frost

Anonymous added on April 22, 2014 | Answered

Unseasonably warm weather has pushed my viburnum into buds that are getting ready to open. We are expecting snow and bitter cold weather for the next few days. Can I protect the blossoms and tree in any special way? Thank you.

If it's just going to be a mild frost, I would recommend covering the plants with a bedsheet. This should be enough to keep the frost from settling on the buds. If you can, a few jugs of hot water placed under the sheets as well will also keep the air a bit warmer under there.
