It’s likely to freeze tonight, with some areas of northeast Indiana and northwest Ohio likely to see high 20s, not slightly below 30 degrees.
What should you do?
Well, some plants you can try covering with sheets and pillowcases. Some things should probably just take their chances.
Tracy Jerraid, a grower at McNamara at Sandpoint, off Bluffton Road, said you can use 5-gallon buckets or the linens to cover sensitive peonies and other plants.
As for hostas and day lilies? She said she doesn’t bother with covering her own, that they can take the torture and come back just fine.
