Protecting Plants in the Winter

Is there a way to overwinter an Anemopsis plant and a Tulbaghia plant? I have had them around my pond this summer and would love to try and save them to grow again in the spring. I am in southern Manitoba, Canada. Thank you.

Here's a few items from an HGTV article...

"Mulch after the first freeze to insulate plants against freezing temperatures, especially those that are marginally hardy.

* Pull mulch back from the base of young trees, particularly if mice are a problem in your area; they can chew on the bark.

* Spray trees that are prone to insect and disease problems with dormant oil, provided temperatures are above 40 degrees F."

It's getting below freezing where I live. It normally does not. I want to protect some plants I have in my harden. What is the best way to this cheaply?

Do you have lots of milk and soda bottles? Cut the top half off and use the bottom with 4 holes cut to let air in, use to protect plants outside from excessive rain and cold!
