Protecting Seedlings From Freezes

alameda/zone 8November 12, 2012

I have quite a few seedlings growing in small pots - they are small but healthy. We are due a light freeze this week. I have a greenhouse - should I put them in it or just leave them outside? They are getting good growth, hate to see them stunted by frost.....

Judith, if you expect to have the weather warm up again after the freeze, you could put them in the greenhouse for now, then bring them back out.

When it gets cold, eventually, you can decide what to do then.

We had our first freeze a couple of days ago. All my daylilies look fine. Until you get to prolonged or hard freezes, I think they would be better off outside.
