Take a deep breath and relax. Do not fertilize them, but be sure to keep them well watered until the ground freezes. Spraying the exposed tops and sides with Wilt Pruf may also be helpful. It can be applied anytime when it will not freeze within three hours, giving it a chance to dry. Around Thanksgiving is a good time. Best And Happy Yardening, Nancy.
