How To Protect Tulips From Spring Freezing Wind

By Allyn Paul, filed under Video Lawn Tips.

Last year, we talked about planting tulips. Now that Spring is about to hit, those tulips are already sprouting and starting to charge up.

You have to think of tulip bulbs as batteries. The leaves that come up are grabbing energy from the sun and charging up the bulb, all so it can send up that beautiful flower. But if those leaves get frozen during early spring cold winds, they will wither, thus not charging the battery, and stunting or ceasing the flower output.

Long story short, here is a high definition video that I did (it’s really short too) on how to protect your tulips from later winter/early spring freezing winds. Cover those Holland beauties with plastic to create a green house effect!
