Skies could clear early Saturday with overnight lows dropping to around freezing in Denver. This could result in a frost/freeze situation.
Prepare for the possible freeze
- Bring in potted plants
- Cover your newly planted flowers or gardens with a sheet
Collette Haskell, a Colorado Certified Nursery Professional at Nick’s Garden Center and Farm Market in Aurora, suggests putting lawn chairs, buckets or yard stakes around the plants and covering them with a sheet or large cloth. Plastic coverings make plants colder, she said.
