    Covering them up usually works and many people use burlap sacks, but you could probably use most other types of fabrics as well.

    In areas where a late spring frost or even
    an early hard frost can threaten garden
    plants, many  struggle with the best
    way to protect them.

    The weather is
    unpredictable even in those areas where
    plants suitable for their growing zone have
    been planted. You can protect plants from
    frost if you are both prepared and aware of
    the pending weather.

    Plants in pots are more tender because the
    roots are not in the ground. The hardiest
    part of a woody plant is the top. When
    plants are brought out of the ground the
    whole plant becomes more vulnerable to cold
    because the roots are less hardy; if the
    roots die the whole plant is lost.

    Plant covers provide exceptional protection
    against Frost, Wind Burn, Sun Burn, Deer and
    other pests. Each plant cover is durably
    constructed and easy to attach and plant covers
    are selectively sized to provide protection
    for everything from Azaleas up through small
    trees, with custom sizing available.

    Water tender plants that need protection
    from an impending frost two to three days
    before the expected frost. Do not water
    plants the day of the expected frost. The
    plants should have moist soil and plump cell
    tissues from a watering in advance of a cold

    If your beloved plants do suffer frost
    damage, there is still hope.

    Don't  cut off
    the damaged parts during the winter. Most
    plants will recover by springtime and the
    pruning, along with some balanced
    fertilizer, will encourage healthy new
