Default Late season snow

One sprout is up on my container hops and we got a late season snowfall. I thought the threat of frost was over and although it's technically over freezing temps, 33f, the snow is sticking. How will this affect my hops?

It will be fine. I had sprouts coming up and then we got 6 inches of snow on April 1st. The snow now is all melted and each has about 10-15 sprouts (2nd year) coming up.

The snow would actual help insult them from frost, but you can cover them at night with a sheet to protect them if possible. Here in NH, I don't consider threat of frost to pass until at least Mother's Day.

We had a snow storm saturday and received a few inches of snow. All of my hops sprouted before the snow storm and they all seem to be doing fine. I have 3 willamette rhizomes and 3 zeus rhizomes to plant this week.
