No. of Recommendations: 2

With temps dipping into the teens last night and again tonight, I'm trying to save a Satsuma fruit tree. Cold tolerance into mid-20s until they get bigger and established. But even then mid-teens is pushing it. So covering with a blanket and hanging a 75W bulb on the lower branches. Hoping it works. Definitely wouldn't work with an LED or CFL.

I would've put a little space heater under the blanket but DW was afraid of starting a fire.
