Button Up Your Overcoat!

It's too cold AT NIGHT to put those annuals outside right now. 

You have been to the nurseries and seen them, couldn't help yourself, and bought a bunch.

Well the nights are going to be in the 30s and 40s for the next 10 days and quite a few annuals will not make it with that cold.

And if you planted them in our cold soil, it could be the kiss of death.

If they are in containers or flats, still keep them in a protected area (garage, enclosed porch, etc) and if they are in the ground, well, you could dig them up and hold them with the other plants in a protected spot till the soil is over 50°. 

You can buy a soil thermometer at our local nurseries to be sure when your garden has warmed up.  Or keep following us for up to date safe gardening alerts!
