Winter Mulch 101

In the summer, mulch helps reduce weeds growing in your garden, but in the winter, mulch acts as insulation for the soil and plant roots (which are more sensitive to cold than stems).
Newly planted trees and shrubs may require a layer of mulch to help survive winter.
As freezing weather approaches, plan to mulch any susceptible plants after the soil cools off but before it’s frozen. Below is some more information from the Virginia Cooperative Extension.
