Household hint: Winter protection. Cold weatherr can be hard on fruit trees, especially young ones. To help them make it through the winter, apply four inches of mulch in late fall after the ground has frozen. The mulch keeps the soil from alternately freezing and thawing and it also reduces the loss of soil moisture.
