After the dry year we had last year, gardeners are grateful to see some rain this spring, however plant experts say the severe weather actually isn’t that great for plants and vegetables.

The Johnson’s Garden Center says protecting your garden can be easy. They recommend using a tunnel protector, which is a small tent that goes over your plants.

That should help save larger plants from strong winds and hail. Smaller plants should be brought inside.

They also suggest waiting a few more weeks before you start planting this spring.
