Satsuma in Lots of Snow
On Christmas day, we received our single largest snowfall day in history of 10+ inches. For those in the north 10 inches in zone 8 is a ton of ice and snow. It looks like it made it through the first day of snow and 20 degree temps just fine. I put three sheets on it and a plaster tarp (plastic did not touch any leaves). The trunk is wrapped in insulating foam and cardboard. I also used a pan of water under the sheets and the small metal pole to help it support the weight. It as the only tree or shrub in the hard not to be bent over from the weight. There is a ten foot tall Camillia in the background laying completely down. The sun did not come out at all today and the temps did not get above 32 so I left it covered all day today.
With the exception of one large potted Satsuma, I had to bring the rest inside. The large potted tree is in the garage.
I hope all of the zone 8 citrus did citrus growers were ready and the trees did ok.
