Cold Weather Warning

Overnight temps are dipping particularly low this weekend, which is perfectly fine for some plants but potentially harmful for others. Here’s what you need to know:

  • If the plant was recently planted in the ground, especially tender annual flowers, flowering tropicals & vegetables, cover the plants with an old bed sheet. Do not use plastic.
  • If the plant is movable in a container or basket, bring inside for the evening where it will be protected from the cold.
  • If the plant spent winter in the ground, it will be fine, and protection is optional. Any flowers currently blooming may be lost for the moment, but the plant itself, will not be permanently damaged.
