My BC's in Arkansas took -10 sitting outside, but it was only cold for a week or ten days. I imagine buried they should do fine, especially if protected from the wind. They do well up into zone 5.

Its cold here.  Has been for days.  its been single digit temps during day with 20-30 mph winds and 40 gusts.  I have tridents and bald cypress sitting outside unprotected.  Of course the pots are well buried in snow so they are insulated.  Nothing to be concerned with.  Supposed to be -5 tomorrow and -15 tomorrow night.  A non-issue.

Don't get worked up.  Trees are very resilient if they are healthy.

It's cold!!

It's been below zero for about 3 weeks here in Minnesota.  What are the sunlight requirements for evergreens this time of the year when it's well below zero?

Hello All,

We'be been in the polar vortex with temps from +3 to 20. Had a respite this weekend temps around 32. Going back on the polar vortex tonight with a low of about +4. This is very cold for central MD.

I have my trees buried in mulch with plastic which is placed over the benches in "lean to" style. Sides are open. Provides a good windbreak. Finally got some snow and shoveled some over the trees for extra insulation.

Hope to go back to our average temps sometime soon. Wanted to do a bit of wiring but everything is frozen. Looking forward to Spring.

Best to all.

Augustine

OK, What is going on here? It snowed again last night, and it's NEVER supposed to snow here in east Texas. The second time in two weeks. The forecast for tonight is 17 degrees. I'm getting tired of all this GLOBAL WARMING ! ::)

Larry, one of the off-shoots of increased ocean temperatures and decreased ice and cold at the poles is greater weather variability. I know it has snowed in the Houston area of Texas before, but what I think you will find is that odd weather will just get to be more the rule than the exception. Who knows, in 20 uears you might be able to grow Larch .

John, I am going next week. Your wife called and said "would you get the pesky little devil outta here? All he has been talking about is nice weather, bonsai trees and getting back to California."

Sorry dude, the luggage is full. :]
