“You can protect plants by covering them with sheets, towels, blankets. You can also turn buckets upside down and place them over the plants. It’s best to cover plants before dark, as this will trap warmer air. You can place plastic over the sheets or blankets to help keep warmth in but do not use plastic directly over plants as this will damage the plants.” Amy Corbin, plant specialist with Springfield’s Corbin Creek Greenhouse.
