NWS freeze warning sign National Weather Service Freeze Warning

Freeze Warnings are to alert you when there is expected to be significant and widespread freezing temperatures. According to the National Weather Service a Freeze Warning is issued in the spring at the start of growing (when it is late enough to cause damage to new plants and crops).

Have you recently planted new crops and/or plants and are worried that the upcoming Freeze Warning is going to damage them? 

Check out this tips that could help protect your plants and crops from the frost:

  • water the soil around them thoroughly the night before as wet soil holds heat better than dry soil
  • lay a bed sheet, blankets, cloths or tarp over the plants but use material to keep them from coming into contact with the crop or plant
  • Mulch can be used as a protective layer on the short plants but must be removed once danger has passed
  • 100-watt outdoor lamp can be used to protect a small tree
