The Consequences of Being Cold

The skies are gorgeous and the temps refreshing, but get ready to kiss your blooms goodbye. Only a few of my mango trees are making spectacles of themselves at the moment, but most of those blooms will be doomed by morning. Supposedly temperatures below 42 degrees kill mango flowers. Fortunately the affected trees will bloom again in a few months. Watering well before the cold decreases damage.
