To take care of your outdoor plants:
- Bring indoors any plants that you can move.
- Hose down plants and shrubs that you can’t bring indoors. Water is a natural insulator.
- Cover more sensitive outdoor plants with fabric, bed sheets, burlap, or commercial frost cloths. Don’t use plastic. Click here to read more about protecting your plants.
