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.
