Frost is still a concern till about mid-February you want to get your plants in the ground as soon as it is reasonably safe. It’s also the time of year to start fertilizing your trees and plants, and start keeping track of what is getting which fertilizer, when, and how much. Veggies to get in the ground in February include beets, beans, carrots, corn, eggplant, lettuce, peppers, summer squash, and tomatoes.
HOW TO PROTECT YOUR PLANTS FROM FROST
One of the biggest worries of gardeners is the threat of freezing weather and frosts that can harm or kill plants and damage crops. With some easy preparation, you can protect your garden plants from frost, freeze and wind damage to help them survive harsh conditions.
Spread a fresh 2- to 4-inch blanket of mulch to protect plants. You could also use shredded leaves or any other kind of organic matter, such as newspapers, to protect the root systems of your plants. Just leave a half inch of space around the base to prevent rot.
Keep plants protected with a row or plant cover, or garden blanket. Another option: burlap. Remember, garden blankets are designed for short periods during overnight frosts and light freezes. Floating row covers provide frost and wind protection. Be sure to brush off any snow that begins weighing down your plant covers.
3. Take Cover
Don’t leave your plants hanging. Remove your containers, too. Store your plants in covered places such as a porch or patio until the weather passes. The warmth of your home will help keep your containers and hanging plants insulated. Consider keeping your big containers on wheelsor plant caddies so you can quickly roll the plants to safety.
4. Resist Watering
Water thoroughly several days ahead of expected frost or freeze, snow or ice, if possible. Otherwise, it’s best not to water your plants until temperatures rise above freezing. If you must, try watering early as the day warms up so plants get time to dry out.
