Cool April Weather – Protecting Your Plants

Here we are, close to May, and a freeze warning has been put into effect for tonight.  The next two nights are going to be cold too.

It is very important that you protect any tender plants that you may have purchased.  Frost blankets, sheets, indoor covers, towels – whatever you use, you need to create protection from the possible temperatures of the high twenties to freezing.  Cover your annuals well, especially impatiens, sweet potato vine, begonias, and coleus.  If possible, bring your containers into a garage or into the house.  Vegetables need to be covered and protected as well.

Luckily, the cold front is only going to be upon us for about the next 2 or 3 nights.  Keep an eye on www.accuweather.com for the latest updates.
