More Freezing Temps in the Forecast

The weather forecasters are predicting more freezing temperatures for central Florida in the upcoming nights. To keep abreast of the forecasted temperature for your area visit the Weather Channel and type in your zip code. Scroll down the page for the 36-Hour Forecast.

Most tropical plants have already suffered damage from the previous freeze a couple of weeks ago. There are steps you can take to minimize the damage. Read Cold Protection of Ornamental Plants by the University of Florida for advice on what to do before, during and after a freeze.
