Garland speaks to BDN about frost warnings

Kate Garland, horticulturist with University of Maine Cooperative Extension, spoke to the Bangor Daily News about the impact of recent frost on Maine gardeners. “Back in 2020, there were some very chilly nights in early June that caught a lot of gardeners by surprise. Years before that, I’ll never forget the disappointment of having my hardened off tomato plants get hit by a cold evening shortly after Memorial Day weekend. It wasn’t a full frost, but it was cold enough to really set them back to a point where I decided to replant,” Garland said.
