Mon Wind Advisory--Protect Your Tender Plants

Okiedawn OK Zone 7
11 years ago

The NWS has issued a Wind Advisory for Monday. The winds could gust into the 40s (or higher) in some parts of the state.

Winds this high can kill young, tender vegetation, particularly if the plants were only recently moved from a more sheltered location out into a less sheltered one.

So, if you have young plants in the ground, or if you're hardening off seedlings, check your wind forecast for tomorrow and be prepared to shelter the plants from the wind if it is possible to do so. High wind can kill young plants very quickly....I won't say in minutes, but at least in a matter of a few hours.

I've linked the Wind Advisory below.
