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.

|Buckets do not work. Anything plastic will kill the plant very quickly. Ask me I know from experience.|

|Buckets do work. Ask me; I know from experience. You are not supposed to leave the buckets on for days or leave them on when the sun beats upon them & the temps. rise much above freezing. That is where you made your mistake. Plants can be fried by that kind of action.|
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.

|I use buckets also, and I've never lost a plant when using one.|
