Caring for your plants during Winter

Finally it is starting to feel like Christmas outside and lately we have had some temperatures that have dipped below freezing. What happens when it freezes to your plants….  well…. the water inside a plant freezes causing damage to the cells of the plant. What does that mean for your tropicals??? That means a lot! They need to be covered as best they can.  All home improvement store in town sell material blankets. They are perfect for protecting your plants from frost. They are lightweight and easy to put on and take off.  If you have potted plants you need to bring them inside if possible.  Even if you just store them under you covered porch or garage. Getting them out of the elements will help tremendously. Let just say you forgot.  The weather dipped below freezing and frost has already got to your plants…   you can bring them back but it’s best to wait until the spring.  Keep your plants slightly wet and use some fertilizer after the frost has is gone. If you have any questions about plants during the winter, let us know.  Have a great day!
