Covered Plants for Cold Protection

Covered Plants

Monitor the weather forecast and avoid moving cold tolerant annuals and herbaceous perennial plants outdoors if a hard frost (colder than 28°F) is predicted at any point within at least three nights of when plants would be put outside. Avoid placing plants in low-lying areas because frost will more likely settle in these areas. Be prepared to cover plants (as seen here), if temperatures go below 28°F.
