Fluffy snow is good for the garden, and we got gobs of it this week. Light feathery snow insulates your precious plants like a goose down comforter. Fluffy snow has lots of air in it, and that keeps the temperature warmer at ground level around the base of plants. The more snow the better as Rutgers University in New Jersey proved when they measured the insulating power of 22 centimetres of snow. When the air temperature was -25C, it was -2C under the snow at ground level where the plants reside.)… Take a gander at the Global Snow Lab (climate.rutgers.edu/snowcover/) that Rutgers maintains for a daily view of the amount of snow cover in the U.S., Canada and parts beyond.
