Our temperatures hit 70 degrees in February for a few days. Buds are coming. Frost will come again. How do I protect plants so the buds do not freeze???
This winter has had an excess of weather provoked gardening issues. There are commercial frost blankets but a folded bedsheet or double layer of row cover will help. (Try thrift shops for the sheets.) Another strategy is to block sunshine from reaching a tender plant on unusually warm winter days. That may delay further bud development. Often the bud survives further cold weather unless it has started to open. Best of luck.
