Although we've been having some warm weather, our plants might not be ready to planted due to the frost.

"Most of our plants that we have outside can take a light frost, but if you had tomato plants or marigold's that are tender to frost, it would kill those plants," stated Debbie Bryant, Greenhouse Owner along Highway 10X.

Even if flowers are in pots, that doesn't make them safe from the frost killing them.

"Depending on what's in them like petunias will take a light frost, but other plants are more sensitive to frost," Bryant explained.

So, what are some ways we can make sure frost doesn't kill our plants?

"Just cover them with a sheet is good. Plastic doesn't really offer much insulation so a sheet would be better, like a bed sheet. Canvas (tarps) would work, but if it's heavy it could sort of crush them," concluded Bryant.
