You want to protect your plants from the frost. After all you work
very hard all summer to keep them looking their best. Don't let the
frost hurt or even kill your precious plants.
You can take a few easy steps to protect your plants from a frost.
Step 1: Cover your plants with bed sheets if you know it is going to frost that
night or day. You may need to use stakes if the weight of the sheet is pulling
your plants over. You can also use light blankets or plastic as long as it does
not smother the plant. Remember a plant is a living thing and needs air.
Step 2: Remember to remove the covers once the temp
rises again the next day.
Step 3: If it is going to be longer than 1 day of frost you
can cover your plants with straw or mulch and remove
once the danger of frost is over.
Step 4: You can snuggle your potted plants close together
under a shelter to help protect them from the frost.
Step 5: You can use a low watt out door light to help keep
the frost off your plants as well.
Thank you for reading. Have a great winter!
Watering you plants is very important. Without water they will die. If you give them too much water
they may die as well. If you water them at the wrong time of day you could hurt them as well.
So, when is the best time to water your plants?
Mornings tend to be the best time to water your plants. The mornings are best for a few reasons.
For starters it is cool in the morning so the amount of water lost due to evaporation is lower
than if you were to water during the mid-day hours. Some people like to water their plants at night.
The problem with watering at night is that the plants remain damp all night and can become
damaged due to fungal and bacterial diseases.
As for how much water your plants should get depends on the age. If they are new plants
they will need extra water until the roots take hold. If you have a established plant then
the roots may be deep enough to reach the damp soil. as for how to water your plants
it is best to use a drip system instead or a regular sprinkler that waste a lot of water and
drenches the leaves which do not need the water.
