Daffodils and Tulips bloom in the early Spring which is what many people in the Tri-States are seeing in their own backyards or gardens.
Experts at Bergman Nurseries in Quincy say as long as the buds are tight, you shouldn't be too concerned with freezing temperatures on the way. But if the leaves or vegetation are starting to show you need to cover them with a sheet or something else breathable.
The flower's damage from the cold really depends on when they were planted.
"If it was a newly planted plant last Fall freezing and thawing of the ground could actually done some damage to the roots. But if they're well established there really shouldn't be a problem with that," said Katrina Albert, an employee at Bergman Nurseries.
Katrina Albert also says you also need to make sure to keep your roses covered as long as the cold temperatures stick around.
