Linda,  I remove the mulch as the weather allows.  You should watch for early 
sprouting seed, peak under the stuff, and not expose tender plants to the 
elements.  At Alvaton, I would place chicken wire over the pots and put the 
mulch over that.  Much of the mulch would lift off with the wire.  I left the 
chicken wire behind when I moved, since I didn't expect to do any more 
hybridizing and I haven't found anything to replace it.  So far, my seed have 
not been disturbed by marauding animals, here.

Pine needles are light and appear easier to remove.
