Freeze Watch Gardening Tips

Sonoma County is expecting sub-freezing temperatures at night through at least Friday (12/13/13). Please review our tips for preserving your favorite plants and shrubs during any overnight freeze in your area.

  1. Freeze watch conditions can kill or severely damage vulnerable plants and can burst pipes

  2. If the soil around plants looks dry, give it some water today or tomorrow during daylight hours

  3. Cover sensitive plants with a frost blanket or apply an anti-dessicant to help reduce damage

  4. Turn off your irrigation controller if it is not equipped with a freeze sensor

  5. Cover exposed pipes and irrigation parts with a towel or blanket

  6. Do not get water on hardscape areas during overnight hours as it will likely freeze and create unsafe conditions
