Re: !/ Proven Winners now Weigela

I don't think this weather is as bad for your plants as the long term,
repeated flooding you had before that prevents oxygen from getting to the
roots.  You're right, it is rough on them, but temps aren't their worst
enemy.  Still, it would be nice if you had some decent snowcover.  Did you
put down any extra winter mulch like EG boughs on the most fragile?  Or use
an anti-desicant?  I didn't.  Hoping for the best,
