Frost advisories typically occur in the late fall and early spring as the seasons are shifting in and out of winter. Temperatures can be anywhere from 32 degrees to 36 degrees Fahrenheit for frost to occur, it doesn’t necessarily need to drop below freezing temperatures. When the temperatures drop below 32, that can cause a freeze which can cause more devastating damage than a frost.
Tropical and subtropical plants that have spent warmer months outdoors can be impacted during frosts, but there are several ways to combat potential damage.
These quick tips can help you prepare and prevent damage to your tropical and subtropical outdoor plants. A combination of these will reduce chances of frost damage to plants and overall impact to your plants growth. Stay up to date on weather alerts for your local zones to make sure you are covering your plants when the temperature drops!
