Cover Plants before Freezing

How to prepare your plants for the cold freezing temperatures in South Florida.

  • Watering your sensitive plants
  • Shelter them with sheets, blankets, tarps or other coverings.
  • Bring them inside

If plants are covered with frost, gently water them to melt the frost before the sun scorches tender foliage. Keep soil moist around the plant but not soggy. If the soil in potted plants is frozen, add water to thaw.

Covering Plants to Prevent Freezing Damage

Cover inground plants when temperatures begin to drop into the 30′s. Use sheets or blankets and make sure they touch the ground to trap heat. If you use plastic, don’t let it touch the plant because it’s a cold conductor.
