Protect Your Trees & Shrubs
Damage to Lantanas, Hibiscus, Gardenias, Bougainvilleas, Natal Plums, Ruellia and Red Fairy Duster seem to follow the norm every year. This year we are seeing severe damage on Pigmy Date Palms, Queen Palms, Fan Palms and Ficus Trees where new growth began to sprout. As you can imagine it's almost impossible to protect your entire landscape. Efforts made to protect and cover trees and shrubs fall short when we have sustained cold temperatures on so many consecutive nights. Please remember not to use any materials which can trap cold air. Plastic is the worst. Trapping cold air is like putting your plants in the refrigerator.
