Southern Gardening: Protect plants from winter cold damage
The freezing temperatures we are experiencing this week are a reminder of the need to provide winter protection for some landscape and garden plants.
Here are some tips to help ward off some of old man winter’s chill. One of the best things you can do for evergreen landscape plants is to give them a good layer of mulch and water them thoroughly. The mulch acts as a blanket, insulating the root system from cold temperatures.
I always receive questions about how much to water in the winter. Maintaining adequate soil moisture is just as important during winter as during summer. Adequate moisture is especially important for plants grown in containers. The moisture in the potting mix buffers falling temperatures, providing insulation and releasing heat as it cools.
