These are the days that I dread. So warm during the day that you can still wear sandals and shorts, but so cold at night you have to wear a parka. Trying to get the longest bloom time from your fall foliage can be tricky. Keep an eye on your local weather frost advisory. Fall frost can stunt your plants in the same way spring frost can. So bundle up your plants and shrubs on really frosty nights in cloth. In the early morning, grab your sweater and head out in the cold to uncover them. This should help keep your flowers and shrubs looking their best for as long as possible.
