Freeze Warning for Tuesday night
well aware of the heavy freeze warning for Tuesday night
and Wednesday morning dipping down to lows in the mid to
lower 20's. This does pose a problem with various
ornamentals & vegetables recently planted by many
gardeners hoping that spring was here for good.
sensitive areas of concern would be for any annuals and
vegetables recently planted. Care needs to be taken by
covering these items well by late afternoon early
evening to retain any thermal protection from the ground
after covering. Existing perennials that are starting
emerge in our landscape typically won't be under any
threat other than possibly receiving some burnt or
freeze damaged foliage but will recover after reflushing
new growth soon if damaged at all. Recent newly
planted perennials are advised to also be covered like
the annuals and perennials mentioned above.
Likely much of
the damage that may occur would be in the form of burnt
new tender leaves and/or flowers but generally this is
only temporary and will recover as warmer weather assist
to develop continued new growth. Wherever possible,

or in a garage or storage area where warmer non
freezing conditions is available.

foliage and flowers can be done by covering with a light

clearing and heavy frost is expected by early morning
for both Tuesday and Wednesday mornings. There will be
no problems in leaving these items covered thru
Wednesday mid morning when favorable spring conditions
return. When covering, when possible, bring fabrics and
covering down to soil levels to assisting in holding in
