I have some fruit trees and plants that I have still in the pots. With the frost coming I have put them in my building. What is the earliest time in the a.m. that I can bring them out so they can get sun light, but no frost?

MIKE MOSS SAYS:      Teresa,    This time of year even on an especially cold morning like we'll have on Easter Sunday, the sun will likely boost us to freezing or above by around 8:30 to 9 am, and even if we're still hovering near the freezing mark at that time, if the vegetation is in direct sunlight it would probably be fine due to the radiant heating. Good luck...
