The weather here is unbelievable. Thanksgiving we had 70 degree weather, the next night it went to 27 degrees. The lows are supposed to be below freezing all week long.
I just bought some fairly large Nellie R. Stevens holly. They are still in their containers, ground is still not ready to plant them. Should get them in the ground in the next three or four days.
I've got them sheltered in a nook up against the brick of the house on the back patio, watered down good, with black plastic and sheets drapped over them. Will these plants be damaged by these below freezing temperatures??
I would really appreciate an answer to this, because I am worried about it. Plants like these are not cheap, and I have many more to buy (this spring) to finish planting this hedge.
Would love to know if my hollies will be all right!
Thanks so much,
