Freeze warning! New strawberries and grapes

Posted by BrittneyT2 6b (My Page) on

We have a freeze warning tonight with a forecasted low of 27.
2 days ago I planted bare root strawberry crowns (starting to green up and a few with a leaf or two), bare root grape vines (not green, buds swelling) and potted grape vines (green vines with several leafs).
Do I need to cover any/all of this? I have a sheet and some towels, would tarps work too?

No, those guys should take 27 OK. I have 28F coming up myself and I put in some blackberries recently but they should be OK. As should all my blooming apricots.
