When the temperature drops to less than 5°C, your plants could easily die from the cold conditions. To avoid this, especially at night when there is no sun, cover your garden in a frost cloth. With this cloth, they are not completely blocked from the air but they are also containing some warmth.

In many ways fall is a much better planting season than spring. The earth is still warm, soft and easy to work. Roots will settle into the ground a lot faster and begin feasting on the nutrients that are still plentiful.
