We are getting a hard freeze in Florida tonight (19-22degrees). Do we have to leave a sprinkler system run on our strawberry plants all night long? Is there anything else that can be done to save them. Thanks

Be careful that your sprinkler system doesn't freeze up. That would likely burst the pipes. Strawberries can take some frost although a sudden change in temperature is another thing entirely. But even if the present leaves get killed - you should get new ones soon enough.

I do feel for you guys down in 'sunny' Florida! Our neighbors, whos' house is sitting in piles of snow 'escape' down to your part of the world in the winter. Find one of the many Canadians there on holiday - they should be able to answer all you frost related questions!!
