Saving Outdoor Plants During Winter Months

Usually, during dry, colder months of the year when there’s danger of frost or a hard freeze, television news teams warn listeners to “cover delicate outdoor plants to protect them.” That’s good advice, but what those plants really need before they are covered is a shot of water to their roots, especially if it hasn’t rained for a while.

If they are covered without first being watered, there’s a chance they’ll suffer greatly or even die.

Watering their roots before covering for a frost or freeze can make all the difference if you really want to help them survive.
