Cold protection for new muscadines?
« on: March 11, 2017, 12:16:30 PM »
I have some muscadine vines that I bought and planted last November.
One of them has started to swell its buds but no true bud break yet. We are about to have a couple of nights in the low 20s.
Any ideas what effect this will have on the vines?
Should I take heroic measures to protect the above-ground part of the vines (about 5 feet)?

Was wondering about wrapping them in Christmas lights with or without some kind of envelope around.
And/or maybe I should be worried about the roots too ....

Sincerely,
Anxious in Tennessee
