When covering low lying plants, simply lay your cloth or blankets on top of your cold sensitive plants and tack down with stakes or large sod staples.
Remove once freeze warnings are lifted.
When covering cold sensitive palms, be sure to wrap the heads and fronds of the palms with cloth or blankets. Secure the cloth by tying string around it or you can also use
clothes pins or larger clips. It is imperative that the heads of the palms are covered thoroughly as this is where the heart of the palm is and the heart is the lifeline of the palm.
You should also work yourself down the trunk all the way to the ground as the ground projects heat to the palm.
Again, covering as much of the entire palm is crucial when it comes to protecting your palms from a freeze.
Once freeze warnings have ceased, simply unwrap, fold and store away for next time. Keep in mind, these cloths are reusable for many, many years to come and fold and store nicely.
