The Q&A Archives: Cool Season Annuals

Question: I just planted a lovely container of pansies, johnny jump-ups ,snapdragons and goldenIvy. They look beautifull and I'm looking forward to seeing it fill in .We just had a really cold front the last week thru which they sailed , but now we're going into the upper eighties this week! I'm Zone 9. Trop.South. Will these sudden warm temps. hurt them? Should I move them into the air conditioning?

Answer: Your plants will stop growing when temperatures rise but should resume growing when things cool down a bit. Don't move them into the air conditioning, but if you can provide some shade from hot afternoon sun it will help, at least until the weather cools down a bit. Best wishes with your new plants!
