    The first frost should hit where I live in about 2-3 wks. Should I protect my plants ( outdoors in pots ) From the frost at night? If so what should I use? Burlap?
    I am only growing 3 and 2 have about 3 weeks to go, the other has about 6

    THX :D

    If your going to put plastic bags over your plants make sure they have holes in them for air exchange otherwise it could greatly damage your plants. Night time is when your plants let out oxygen and take in carbon dioxide a very important part of your plants life you dont want to stop it from doing that.

    mine were already hit by frost and nothing ever ever gets damaged o_O i even let the spring frosts weed out the weak plants, after the firtst frost what ever is still alive after are usally good and hardy anyways , so im never worried about fall frosts.
