I'm so glad this thread got started. I just got my bare-root whips in (Macintosh semi-dwarf) in zone 6, and they go in on Tuesday.

I was thinking of using pipe insulation (the kind that looks like the foam 'noodles' kids use in pools these days) because it has a slit up one side and I bet it's a pretty good insulator with out weird weather here just north of Pittsburgh.

Can anyone think of why that may not be a good idea? I plan to wrap tape around them too, b/c I expect the slit up the side of the foam to invite all kinds of problems.
