danger of frost

cghpndApril 20, 2013

Hey yall. I live in Northern Va. I have swamp milkweed outside in containers. They are all nice and wet from yesterday's storms. Now tonight is supposed to be 34 degrees. Should I bring my plants in or will they be ok?they do not have eggs on them. This is my 1st time with plants period.

Thirty-four degrees probably won't hurt them, but the weather people may be wrong, you may have a freeze, and it won't hurt to bring them in.
I put my plants in the bath tub, because they're usually wet on the bottom, and I can clean up after them easily there.
