Prevent Damage

(POCATELLO) – It’s that time of year when people start planting their gardens again, but what do you need to keep those flowers from freezing? Town and Country Gardens plant guru Gary Adamson tells Local News 8 that it may be wise to wait a little while longer before getting out the old shovel and trowel. “There’s a risk of frost, and even right now there’s still some risk. So, you want to make sure you have the means to keep your plants covered, just in case. The higher elevations may want to wait another week to 10 days before they plant out,” Adamson said.
Adamson says he’s seen plenty of customers already, though they’re more careful about how much they spend.
