Should I Cover Periwinkle With Leaves for Winter

ssquared added on November 2, 2015 | Answered

Periwinkle planted this year in 20 x 20 area, part shade protected from the north. After last year's freeze, I thought I'd cover the periwinkle now with leaves as a winter cover. Is that a good idea? When should I uncover?

Yes, you can add about 4 inches of organic loose mulch such as leaves to winterize the Periwinkle ground cover.

Uncover your plants in the spring when the danger of frost has passed.
