4 Levels of Protecting Your Plants this Winter
• Bring it INDOORS!
• Water Before a Freeze (+5 degrees) Water is an insulator and when filled in the cells of a plant and in the soil help protect it.
• Frost Cloth (+10 Degrees) Cloth-based are best, not plastic. Place on the plant in the afternoon before the cold descends to retain the heat of the day.
• Twinkle Lights (+15-20 degrees) Yep, those wonderful lights we put on our houses this time of year make great little heaters… as long as you use the “old” incandescent ones… not LED’s… LED’s put off no heat.
You can combine them for increased resistance to the cold.
