Late Season Frost – What should you do?
Dealing with late season frost. It seems like there always is a cold weather that threatens to harm your newly budded plants. In our area the weather has been playing tricks on our local flora by giving us 70 degree weather in February and March. It makes the plants think it is time to push out those buds or flowers just a bit early. What should you do to prevent the frost from wreaking havoc on your plants? Well, if you have any plants in pots just bring them indoors until after the threat of frost has passed. Otherwise, you can invest in frost blankets or insulated tarps that you can cover your plants with to help provide some additional warmth. It is a bit of work to do this each time frost is in the forecast, but it will save the headaches of dealing with any plant damage down the road. Good luck!
