Protecting In-Ground Plants When Unseasonable Ice, Sleet, Snow, or Freeze Conditions Present

I sit here writing this on 1/28/14 while we await abnormal winter weather to strike this evening. Here in the south our perennials are showing signs of tender new spring growth, but the weather is predicted to give us a beating for the next 2 days in the form of unseasonable ice pellets and mixed winter precipitation, to include snow or sleet.

This is also a strategy of mine when hail is predicted. Usually I am running around the garden in between rain drops and lightning bolts!

Oh hail! Whistling Hilarious! I forgot to say it works for hail too. Thanks for reminding us all Reid. Thank You!
I am a strong believer in the simple fact is that what matters in this life is how we treat others. I think that's what living is all about. Not what I've done in my life but how I've treated others.
