Protecting Your Plants Against Frost

As temperatures drop across KELOLAND this week, it's time to start thinking about how to protect your plants against a frost.

Potted plants should be brought inside while it's best to cover outdoor plants before Monday night's forecasted frost.

You can do that with sheets, light blankets, or any other non-plastic cover. Plastic tends to trap cold and is less good for protection.

Using bricks or stones to secure the edges of the blankets can keep them from blowing away.

Take a look at your KELOLAND Weather forecast to find out whether your plants could be vulnerable.
