It dropped to a chilly 29 degrees during the night of April 29 and we are seeing many plants with signs of frost damage. Our observations indicate Japanese maples, ginkgos, hostas, mulberries and locust are among the plant species harmed the most by the plunging temperatures.
If your valued plants are showing signs of frost damage, such as browning or curling leaves, remember three things:
1. WATER Keeping your damaged plants well watered through this growing season will improve their chances of recovery.
2. FERTILIZE A fertilization treatment will aid the recovery by providing the damaged plants a nutrient boost.
3. GIVE IT TIME It will take time, but most will recover.
If you need an inspection of your damaged plants, call our office at 321-3553.
