Question Sugar cane Back Up:}

Merry Christmas

I have a question for sugar cane growers.

I cut my cane to the ground and mulched them a several weeks ago when it got right below freezing.

But now that we've had a couple of weeks of WARM and RAINY weather those suckers have grown 3-4" and poking up above the mulch I placed on them; anyway it's supposed to go below freezing again next week????

Should I go ahead and snip the canes back down and mulch them again?

Or will they be just fine as they are?

Thanks in advance for your comments...

Snookie
