Plant or protect? Freeze coming. Panicking. Please Help!?
Thank you so much for looking at this, and hopefully helping me. I'm a newbie and don't know what to do! I tried to find the answer but I can't. Waaahhh! Whine! Wimper, wimper!
We have an unexpected (potential) freeze coming and I have all of these gifts from neighbors gardens that are pretty much bare-bulbed, or if they're in soil, it's not much (egg cartons & small plastic pots). Should I hurry up and plant them before the freeze? If I do, I won't be able to cover the foliage. I could spread leaves or something over the bases. OR...
Should I try to find some way to cover them as they are? They're all on my deck right now, about 3 feet off the ground. Would I be better off putting them ON the ground & covering them? Can the cover touch them, or does it need to be tented somehow?
LOL I'm freaking out! Please, please, please somebody HELP! I need to get busy doing whatever it is I'm gonna do.
