Reply: Griff, I try to wait until it has frozen more than once.
I've always been told that one should wait until the ground freezes,
but I can't afford to wait that long becanse by then there may well
be snow cover. So I wait until there's been a good hard freeze (if
there is a "good" freeze!) and do it then. Foliage is still green at
that point, but it's the rhizome I care about, not foliage.

Thanks for the advice, Arnold -- but when do you recommend applying the
mulch -- before first freeze -- after?
Griff Crump, along the tidal Potomac near Mount Vernon, VA, where the
disastrous winter of 1995-96 heaved up and killed hundreds of
well-rooted, but unmulched, seedlings transplanted in July.
