Protect Your Plants from Monday Night Freeze

Protect Your Plants from Monday Night Freeze
By: Heartland News
Freezing temperatures Monday night have many gardeners, farmers, and those in the landscaping business concerned.
The Heartland Gardener Paul Schnare says this freeze probably won't be as damaging as the big freeze last year, but it's better to be safe than sorry.
"In March, we had cold temperatures so things really haven't bloomed like last year, so I don't think it's going to be as bad, but if you have spent money already on landscaping and flowers, then you might want to cover protect them tonight," Schare said.
Schnare says you can cover your landscape with items like the "wall of water" designed to keep warmer temperatures trapped around your plants.
You can also purchase a "hot cap" to simply place over your shrubs and flowers or just cover plants with an old bed sheet.  But do not use a plastic cover.  Schnare says cold passes easily through plastic.
