Our temps here in NW GA are going down to 39° tonight after raining all day, and 36° tomorrow night. I was wondering if I needed to protect my oregano or will it be okay? Thanks a bunch!!

If they are wet you won't have to worry, if the plants are dry then, water them just as the sun comes up to prevent frost damage. When the sun hits the plants during a frost, the cell tissue burst. But when the plants are wet the cell won't burst.
NOT A EXPERT! Just a grow worm! I never met a plant I didn’t love.✌
