Mulch Perennials
Once the ground has frozen to a depth of about an inch, apply a loose mulch to your perennials. Adding mulch too early encourages rodents to seek warmth in your garden. You want to keep the plants cold, but they need protection from repeated freezing and thawing. In warm areas, pull the mulch away from the crowns of the plants to prevent rot.
