lants don’t really shiver, but some don’t tolerate the cold very well. When I was younger, I used to help my mom cover the plants before a freeze. It was this ritual we went through to bring in potted or hanging plants like my mom’s prized staghorn fern and orchids and throw sheets over the ones that couldn’t be moved. I always wondered how she picked the plants to be protected. Was it just the ones she really liked? Now that I know the science behind it, this article will tell you which plants to protect and how to protect them. There are two different types of freezes, radiational and advective freezes, but we commonly refer to them as a frost and hard freeze. A radiational freeze, or frost, occurs on calm, clear nights when the plant loses heat too quickly. It can occur when the temperatures reach the mid-30s or below. The leaves may or may not have ice deposits, depending on if the air is moist. Both can result in plant damage in susceptible plants. Radiant heat loss can be reduced by covering the plant. With an advective freeze, or hard freeze, cold air moves in rapidly bringing in freezing temperatures. Windy conditions are common during freezes. Covering your plant usually doesn’t help during this time. Tropical plants and summer annuals are not adapted to cold temperatures and can be damaged at temperatures below 50°F. Subtropical plants can acclimate to colder temperatures if we have a gradual decrease in temperature and can often withstand temperatures below freezing. An easy way to tell what your plant can survive is to look at the cold hardiness zone of your plant. If I look up the hardiness zone for my mom’s staghorn fern on plants, it says it is in zones 10-15. Comparing that to the USDA


Plant Hardiness Zone Map, zone 10 plants can only withstand lowest temperatures of 30-35°F. In windy conditions, temperatures in the 40s can easily drop into the 30s around the plant. Note that he hardiness zone only predicts survivability not possible plant damage. Plants in containers are also more susceptible to colder temperatures even if their hardiness zone is lower due to the roots being above ground. If you are not bringing your containers inside, move them to where the heat can be trapped, such as under a tree. Push them together and protect them with mulch, leaves, or a covering. When it comes to coverings, you can use cloth sheets, quilts, plastic, or commercial frost cloths. Remember that the coverings protect more from frosts than freezes. The covers need to extend to the ground and be anchored down. They also should not touch the plant foliage, if possible, to reduce cold injury. This is especially important with plastic coverings which will take heat away from the plant if it touches it. Uncover the plants during the day, so you don’t cook the plants. Christmas lights under the cover can provide an additional heat source for the plants and add a little Christmas cheer to your landscape when they are not under a sheet. Even with the effort to protect your plants, you may have plant damage. Cold injury can affect the whole plant or just parts of the

plants such as the fruits, flowers, buds, leaves, stems, or roots. A common injury is plant desiccation or the plant drying out, resulting in marginal or leaf tip burn or totally brown leaves. It is important to water your plants before and after a freeze to reduce this type of injury. After a freeze, you can remove any dead leaves, but resist the urge to do any severe pruning until the early spring. Pruning too early can result in a growth flush which is more prone to cold injury. The exception is that pruning of deciduous trees (the leaves fall off) often occurs during the winter, or dormant months. During the late fall and winter, bundle up and keep looking at the weather channel to determine if you need to cover your plants.

Clearing up kitchen sink confusion By Ed Del Grande Tribune News Service

Q: Dear Ed: I have been looking into kitchen sinks and fireclay kitchen sinks keep popping up. What exactly is a fireclay kitchen

sink, and can you tell me a little more about them? — Kate, Kansas A: Two very popular choices for kitchen sinks are cast iron and stainless steel. But, there are other very good material choices

for kitchen sinks out there, and fireclay is one of them. Basically it’s a heavy-duty ceramic product where the clay and glaze are fired together at very high temperatures and fuse together.

Fireclay is used often to create farmhouse or apron-style kitchen sinks because of its beauty and versatility. Because it’s a very durable clay product, textured designs can be embedded in the

kitchen sink as well to create a strong artistic impression.


the desired choice, especially for home buyers. 5. Dark floors. Roughly a decade ago, when it came to flooring, the lighter the better. These days the current trend is more towards darker, deeper tones.

With people wanting to enjoy their homes as much as possible, spa features remain highly desirable and attractive to both potential buyers and homeowners. 3. Separate showers and bathtubs. If the space is available, creating a separate shower, preferably with rain shower features, is definitely the way to go to get the most bang for your buck. 4. Walk-in showers.

Now, post-recession, homeowners demand the most for their money, and this includes spending money on sturdy, long-lasting appliances. 4. Paneled appliances.

Together for the holidays By Mary Carol Garrity Tribune News Service

I learned early in life that it’s pretty awesome to help others make their holidays merry and bright. My folks owned a clothing store in Atchison, Kan., and as a kid, I was thrilled when they let me help make the bows for the packages we giftwrapped. It was fun to imaging those gifts being slid under someone’s tree, and the face of the lucky person who got to open it at Christmas. It’s been 35 years this month since I opened Nell Hill’s. And I still get a charge out of helping our customers make their holiday celebrations beautiful and memorable, full of joy, majesty and lots of fun. When it comes to Christmas spirit, we are filled to overflowing. Our lavish displays are designed to wow and inspire everyone who visits. Through the

years, many of you have made coming here during the holidays an annual tradition. In case you can’t make it this season, I wanted to give you a quick tour of the store decorated for the holidays. Enjoy!

When designing this effervescent holiday look, we took our color cues from the cheery pink ceiling and fresh white walls. HANDOUT/TNS

Merry & bright The first gallery off our entry is an ode to color. The pure joy of this magical season is almost palpable when you are enveloped in this cheerful room. When designing this effervescent holiday look, we took our color cues from the cheery pink ceiling and fresh white walls. Through our furniture, artwork, accents, and, most importantly, the holiday decor, we splashed in orange, magenta, teal, greens, blues. This fun-loving holiday hug would look wonderful in homes that lean toward contemporary or modern stylings.

This delightful setting is a more casual take, like it’s set in a snug cabin in the woods, with the snow falling outside and a fire crackling in the hearth. HANDOUT/TNS

Dramatic elegance I’ve had a lifelong love of blue and white. So when we designed this room, and filled it full of blue and white, with a few pear green accents, I wanted to pack my overnight bag and just move in. We set the stage for elegance with the moody Twilight walls, then added sensational sapphire blue velvet settees.

Love! I think this tree has been the most photographed of the season, complete with mirrors used as shelves that are topped with urns.

A cozy cabin I’ve always loved a woodland look at Christmas and have taken that theme in lots of different directions on my dining table through the years.

This delightful setting is a more casual take, like it’s set in a snug cabin in the woods, with the snow falling outside and a fire crackling in the hearth. Check out the interesting twig light fixture, a conversation piece that adds to the room’s charm. We layered the table in matching throw blankets, turned on the diagonal over the tabletop. In the 35 years I’ve had the pleasure to help people make their homes beautiful for the holidays, I’ve learned that putting in a little time to

dress your home makes you and your guests feel special, an ovation to the significance of this special time of year. But I’ve also learned that, as you fix and primp, you have to always remember that it’s not about the decorations or presents or food. It’s about the people you love. — This column was adapted from Mary Carol Garrity’s blog at www. She can be reached at marycarol@

Pitt, Jolie in new roles as sellers after their divorce By Neal J. Leitereg and Lauren Beale Tribune News Service

LOS ANGELES — Amid their highly publicized divorce, Brad Pitt and Angelina Jolie have begun to sell off their marital assets. Among the first to go: a home in New Orleans that sold for $4.9 million. Dating back to the 1830s, the French Quarter row house had been listed a year ago for as much as $6.5 million. Pitt and Jolie bought the property in 2007, following Hurricane Katrina, for $3.5 million. The brick traditionalstyle house has a front balcony and dormer windows that overlook the historic area. The nearly 7,650 square feet of living space includes scaled formal rooms, an updated kitchen, a laundry room, five bedrooms and four bathrooms. Venetian plaster walls, custom-designed marble mantels and crown moldings are among the interior details. A grand staircase and an elevator connect the three-story home. There’s also a guesthouse and a two-car garage. Pitt, 52, became involved in efforts to rebuild New Orleans’ Lower 9th Ward following Hurricane Katrina in 2005. He will appear in the upcoming historical drama “Allied” alongside actress Marion Cotillard. Jolie, 41, in 2004 won

the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences’ Jean Hersholt Humanitarian Award. This year, she lent her voice to the animated comedy “Kung Fu Panda 3.”

He’s parting with a stand-up spread It would appear that Richard Lewis is in a hurry to perform his closing act. The stand-up comic and actor listed his longtime home in Hollywood Hills West last week for $1.559 million and has already dropped the asking price to $1.399 million. Lewis, who bought the property in 1989 for $720,000, isn’t the only one connected to the Mediterraneanstyle home. Past owners and residents include actor-singer Eddie Albert, actor-dancer Gene Nelson and prolific voice-over actor Charles Judels. The Mediterraneanstyle house, built in 1926, sits up from the street and has a canopy-topped front patio. Within more than 2,500 square feet of white-walled space is a living room with a fireplace, a dining area, an updated kitchen, two bedrooms and two bathrooms. Glass doors off the media room/lounge open to a balcony with another fireplace. The master retreat — with a built-in reading nook and a separate office — takes in city views.

Lewis, 69, gained fame for his appearances on “Late Night With David Letterman” as well as his HBO specials. He has had a recurring role on “Curb Your Enthusiasm,” in which he plays a fictionalized version of himself, since its first season.

Finding a new beat in Bell Canyon Singer-songwriter Trey Songz has settled into a modern home in the gated community of Bell Canyon. The purchase price was $3.45 million. Set on a quiet culde-sac, the 1-acre property takes in mountain views and includes a 7,800-square-foot main house, a 900-squarefoot guesthouse, a tennis court and an orchard. The main residence features formal living and dining rooms, a theater, a game room with a wet bar, five bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. The center-island kitchen opens to a family room with retractable doors leading outside. The guesthouse has a living room, a kitchen, one bedroom and a bathroom. The expansive grounds contain a swimming pool, a spa, an outdoor kitchen with barbecue, an outdoor dining area, patios and lawn. The R&B and hip-hop artist, 31, has released six studio albums including “Trigga” two years ago. SEE PROPERTY, 14
