    Hey Dyflam,

    That was our high here in Atlanta this morning. My minibog looked okay but I guess only time will tell. If you are concerned you might consider tossing a couple layers of hay or pine neddles over it. Or even a couple old blankets.

    And if you are feeling really gutsy there is a physics equation that proves it is a good idea to soak you plants in the event of a quick freeze situation. Something about themodynamics and the water on the outside of the plants freezing first and taking away the energetic properties needed to freeze that plants. Not that I have tried it mind you, I just remember it from high school physics

    See You Space Cowboy

    They should be just fine. Mine have survived colder temps for longer periods of time, in pots mind you.

    as long as they are mature plants they will be ok. actually the colder temp will be good for there dormancy period. if they are seedlings you might want to bring them in or cover them up w/ something

    Well, some came in and some stayed out. It's gonna be another cold one tonight. My mango tree bit the big one I'm afraid. It had some really nice blossoms too. I'm sure there's a few others that didn't survive the night. The bad news is, some plants have died [img]http://www.**********.com/iB_html/non-cgi/emoticons/sad.gif[/img] the good news is, I get to plant some new plants.

    Dyflam, just think of where the plants actually grow in the wild. with the ones that grow here in Fl. in the panhandle and i do belive some grow wild in Orlando. the temps in the panhandle get down to the 20 and below all the time in the winter. it is unusual to get that cold here but, it is know to happen.

    Dustin, brrrr with you telling us that it brings back memeries of visiting family up there tis time a yr. and if i recall correctly the last time i was up there for winter visit i got stuck there a couple of extra days do to a blizzard.
