Tips to keep your garden growing through cold weather


GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. The forecast predicts rain for Saturday, but gardening experts said that's not something to worry about because that adds moisture.

The cold that comes after a wet day is usually what can destroy plants if you're not prepared.

Experts suggest covering your plants with a blanket or box if the weather dips to get them through cold mornings.

Its also a good time to get plants out of green houses to get them used to a less benign environment.

Even with rainy weather coming up you should start thinking about watering your plants for the summer experts said watering them infrequently but deeply is key.
