Winter is coming: protecting container nursery stock from adverse weather events©

M. Emmons

INTRODUCTION
The fall can be a great time to take a step back from the pressures of the growing season and to reflect on the year. The plants are dormant, pressure to water constantly has been reduced substantially and the extreme cold weather that will be coming has yet to arrive; time to take a deep breath. But any sense of tranquility soon disappears when the realities of winter and what it can bring comes forward. Prides Corner Farms (PCF) goes to great lengths to ensure that our nursery stock is adequately protected. And it does not stop with winter protection. Our plants are under assault throughout the year from events created by Mother Nature. Talking about the weather is not enough. Preparing for what she dishes out is important. Let’s start.
