Weather Alert!

posted by

Weather alert for Bay Area gardeners! Freezing temperatures are expected this evening. Here are a few things you can do to protect your plants:

1. Water plants today, especially container plants, to reduce damage from the cold.
2. Use mulch to help insulate soil from temperature extremes.
3. Spray plants with Bonide Wilt Proof or Cloud Cover to add 2 to 3 degrees of extra protection against frost.
4. Wrap susceptible plants with burlap, Harvest Guard or Insulate. You can also use old bed sheets and newspaper…just don’t use plastic.
