When will the 2011 Ice Age begin?
We are having the first cool mornings in Savannah forewarning of the soon-to-come autumn. With that snap in the air, it’s time to prepare the winter quarters of the cold sensitive trees...............
- Each winter, on average, our risk of frost is from November 24 through March 1.
- Almost certainly, however, we will receive frost from December 14 through February 10.
- We are almost guaranteed that we will not get frost from March 20 through November 4.
- Our frost-free growing season is around 268 days.
light, moderate, or hard?
- Light freeze: 29°F to 32°F—tender plants killed, with little destructive effect on other vegetation.
- Moderate freeze: 25°F to 28°F—widely destructive effect on most vegetation, with heavy damage to fruit blossoms and tender and semi-hardy plants.
- Severe freeze: 24°F and colder—damage to most plants.
