Kanas City landscaping about to be hit by major snow – maybe

Will it ?  I’ll leave that up to the experts at NBC Action News.

However, if it does , here is what you need to know for your .

Most will be ok.  We have had a very seasonable march so the that are in bud and coming out of dormancy will be able to handle the cold.  As long as the cold stays above 25 or so.

I do see an exception to some of the fruit in the area.  i have noticed that some of them were beginning to bloom.  These will likely lose some of their blooms.

I would wait to cover any until after it snows.  The wight of the ontop of the covers will likely cause more damage than the temperatures.

Also, there is a risk if we have substantial that with leafed out branches or with blooms could catch enough to hurt cause their limbs to break.  This could true for evergreens as well.
