plant protection from cold weather

Temperature Drop Tonight

Hi everyone!  I'm back with a quick post this evening.  With temperatures expected to drop into the 30's tonight, you may want to take a moment to protect any tender or young plants in your landscape.  Most plants will manage the chill with no problems, but if you've just brought home some tender plants  like basil or tomatoes, they could use a little extra TLC.  Bring them inside, if possible, but if not, a light sheet draped over top will work just fine. Overturning a clay pot on your young plants is a great way to shelter them while still allowing airflow. It's going to be a beautiful weekend, and the garden center is absolutely bursting with new arrivals.  Summer annuals and tropicals are filling the grounds with color, and the perennial area is just as amazing.  I can't wait to share with you some of the photographs I took earlier today.  Be sure to stop by tomorrow to take a peek.

See you all then!
