Spreading the Joys of Home Brewing Throughout Philadelphia and the Universe!

Hi all,

The low temp for tonight is at the moment forecast to be 28F with a "real feel" of as little as 15F.

I have several hop plants with shoots up to almost a foot tall, and I'm worried that these will not fare well during the cold snap.

Any creative ideas for a way to protect my babies?  Some of the plants are pretty wide and the shoots are fairly tall, so a tupperware "cover" will not do the job.

Thx,

-e

Im in for the responses. My sprouts are only a few inches, but I would like to know if there is any concern or ways to help the plants

I will not be doing anything.....they are very tough.......worse happens, exposed sprouts could die, your plant will grow plenty of knew ones. If you are really concerned how about some 6 gallon buckets over your hop mound?

New shoots should sprout rather quickly.  I think you'd be safe to snip the frosted ones if you're worried.
