Q.Spring Flowering

Anonymous added on January 17, 2014 | Answered

I have planted my bulbs (eg: tulips, anemone, bluebells) outside in my garden in containers and in raised beds during late December. Due to cold weather now, would it be better if I covered with weather protection cover? Does it makes any difference? Thank you.

These bulbs are generally fairly hardy and unaffected by the cold. That said, those in containers may need additional protection (such as bubble wrap or relocating to sheltered area) should an unexpected freeze be imminent. Those in raised bed should be fine though you may add a layer of mulch if desired.
