There is a cold weather warning in effect for Southern California, starting tomorrow 2/25/11 and extending through the weekend. They are saying that this is going to be the coldest it has been in years and if you thought 2007 was cold… it might snow as low as 1,000 feet (that means it could be snowing in the Santa Monica Mountains!)
In addition to the information that I am linking below – please note that although most plants will benefit from watering prior to the cold, cactus and other succulents WILL NOT. If they have too much water they will burst and are better a little under watered.
Here is the link to my post on pre-frost preparations and a link to my friend Maurice Levin’s (of Jurassic Garden Cycads) great post as well.
