Protecting Your Plants From Frost
This weekend will be our first taste of winter-like weather of the season and considering we experienced record highs just one week ago, the cold temperatures might catch some people off guard. Tropicals or non-native plants will be most susceptible to the cold weather but other vegetables might not fare too well even though temperatures don't fall below freezing. Wendy Wilber from the Alachua County Extension Office says the best way to protect plants is to make sure plants are well watered and covered with a blanket. Wilber also says it is best to stop pruning plants and to not fertilize your yard again until march.
