Fall planted seeds coming up in January

Zone 28625 | that_guy_gardener added on January 29, 2017 | Answered

Here in zone 7b, the weather has been rather warm. Some of my fall planted seeds are coming up and I don't want them to die. The temps are dropping, so will they survive the rest of the winter or will they be too tender to survive? Thanks for any help in advance!

There really is not much that you can do except wait to see the outcome. If the temperatures don't drop below freezing, they may be just fine.
You can try covering during the cold period, but if it is over an extended period, the plants may not survive.
