The Q&A Archives: Hanging baskets

Question: At what temperature do I need to bring in my flowers from outside? I see that there are a few nights coming up that the temperature will be 37 degrees.

Answer: The answer really depends upon the plants you are growing but moving them into a sheltered place when overnight temperatures threaten to reach below 37F is not a bad idea. Try to put them in an unheated basement, garage or shed rather than indoors where you might have the heater running. The temperature extremes can harm the plants almost as much as staying outdoors in the barely above freezing temperatures. Let's hope warm weather arrives soon!
