Frozen garden - Knowledgebase Question

Idaho Falls, Id
Question by mfriess

I believe our temperatures dropped lower than expected last night and I did not take any precautions to protect my freshly planted garden from the frost. My plants looked great yesterday but today they do not look so good. Is there anything I can do to help them now? Or should I just plan on replanting?

A mild frost can set your plants back - a prolonged or heavy frost can kill them outright. Give your plants another day or two to show the full damage. If they look completely toasted, you may need to replant. If they look like they've only suffered some leaf damage, they should recover. I hope the damage isn't too extensive!
