Ty Ty nursery gives tips on plant upkeep in cold weather

Protect your plants from the cold weather

TIFT CO., GA (WALB) - Temperatures are dropping and there are some things you can do to protect your plant life from the cooler weather.

The manager at Ty Ty Nursery said there are things you can do like moving your plants inside to make sure they don’t freeze.

As the temperatures drop, make sure you know what type of plants you have and figure out what to do with those particular plants.

Nut trees that shed their leaves each year, along with flower trees and pecan trees typically hold up in colder weather.

But you want to look out for some palms and citrus trees because those are more sensitive to the weather.

“Most of your deciduous type trees you shouldn’t have anything to worry about," said Wesley Hunter, Ty Ty Nursery manager. "But like I said, covering them, mulching them or even possibly bringing them indoors into a garage or carport area to keep them away from the cold would be very beneficial.”

If you have any questions on how to maintain your plants, you can contact an extension agent in your county.
