Helping Your Plants Survive a March Cold Snap Cumming, GA
seasonal flowers

If you live in Georgia, you’re almost there. We are close upon days of consistent warm temperatures and steady spring weather. However, we all know that March is a time when random cold spells occur, taking us for hours or days back to freezing temperatures. While this can be frustrating for your wardrobe selection, it is equally frustrating and disruptive for your landscape.

If your spring flowers and plants are trying to emerge and a cold snap is predicted, an ounce of prevention is worth a pound of cure. Follow these simple steps to protect your landscape from the lingering jolts of winter:

  • Provide Cover – protect your plants by covering them at night. Use a sheet, inverted plastic pot or anything else that will effectively shield your plants from the bitter temps.
  • Replenish Your Mulch – mulching helps to keep plants warmer.
  • Bring Them Inside – if you have a potted plant or a tropical plant, consider carrying them indoors until the cold snap passes.
  • Plant Smarter – when you choose your plant and flower varieties, be smart about whether or not they can survive a cold Georgia winter. Pay attention to the areas that have enough sun to stay warm and those that are shaded through the winter months.

Plants typically survive cold better than frost. Should frost damage occur, consider a “wait and see” approach and avoid pruning the plant until it has a chance to offer new growth. In many cases, watering a stunned plant can help it recover quicker.

What our clients say about us

Jeffrey H.

Got sod and dirt. Both delivered on time, reasonably priced, and high quality (only found 2 rocks in 6 cubic yards of dirt and only 1 rectangle of sod out of 5 pallets was mangled). Both drivers friendly and were able to maneuver around my yard to put the stuff where I wanted it. Mostly appreciate that every time I called, someone picked up the phone rather than an answering machine. Would choose again.

We've purchased dark brown mulch from other landscape supply companies in Canton and the mulch always faded within a couple of days but then our landscaper told us to get our mulch from GLM Sod and Landscape supplies, so we decided to try them out and after an entire year, the mulch is still dark and looking great! I'll pay a few dollars extra to have our mulch delivered from Milton from now on - it just makes good sense!

Huge thank you to GLM for great professional products, as well as impeccable service! I will definitely be back to purchase more for future projects!
