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.

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.
