It's just not citrus that needs to be looked after the next few days. Some outdoor plants are susceptible to the cold.
“Your succulents, citrus, anything really juicy; they tend to expand, water expands and the crystals explode,” said Enrique Mendoza of H&E Nursery.
Your conifers like pine, spruce and fir trees will be fine. Experts say well watered plants have a better chance of survival.
“Well watered plants do better with frost,” said Mendoza.
Spraying a polymer at least two hours before the actual frost begins will also take the edge off.
“It coats the leaves so that it doesn't get...it gives you about two to three degrees of protection,” said Mendoza.
Christmas lights are also a good way to raise the temperature by a couple of degrees.
“You basically just take the Christmas lights, wrap them around the trunk of the palm,” said Mendoza.
Experts warn to never use plastic as a cover. When the sun rises, it will cook your plants. They say it's good to follow all precautionary measures even before it reaches the freezing point.
Many Valley farmers are on high alert Friday night because of the freezing temps.
Keith Nilmeier has been a citrus grower for 40 years and is no stranger to prepping his orchards for the cold.
“It's just kind of like a tap dance, you know you sleep a little bit early and then by 8:30 or 9 o'clock you're out there you know and you got to make your rounds,” said Nilmeier.
Experts say we should be in the clear by Monday morning.
