“If they’re outside, cover them up,” Webb said. “If you have the opportunity to bring them inside, any plants on your front porch, any of that, pop them in the garage. Just anything to give additional heat to them. To give them some extra warmth to survive the night.”

Webb says keeping your plants warm tonight will lead to beautiful blooms in the coming weeks.
