  • Frost warning tonight.

    Frost warning tonight in Ohio. Low of 34 predicted. Might bring the small tender green plants in.

    I've got a few larger potted trees that are still ripening figs and will need protection from overnight frost and cold during the next 3 nights of forecasted frost. My younger 1 gallon trees will simply be protected from direct frost but will be left out in the cold to "harden off". Good luck.

      Are you just going to cover them with a sheet?

      Don,
      The larger trees will be shuffled while the smaller trees will be covered with plastic sheeting.

        It's time for sure. I'll be moving the rest in to storage today.

          Mine don't seem to be dropping leaves yet. Are you guys pulling off the leaves?

            Some trees don't want to go to sleep Don. Most of mine are still actively growing, yet as the temp continues to drop and the light fades... of course the reduction of water. They will indeed loose their leaves and enter their winter slumber. There is no need to remove any leaves.
