Protecting Japanese Maples from Cold snap?
Once again the artic cold snap revisits the bluegrass state and my 5 Japanese Maples (and lilac, fruit trees, etc) are once again in danger since they've started leafing-out for the year. I covered them as best I could with cloth (sheets, comforters, foam) and then covered that with plastic bags since it is raining\sleeting\snowing outside. Will this protection be adequate? It seemed to do the trick in 2008 when we got hit with one of these around April 14th.
Hoping for the best
