Many articles I have read and many people that have told me that Zaatar cannot stand the frost. Most plants that are called, “Zaatar” are Frost Tender-Perennials, which means that plant is sensitive to cold temperatures, the plant will also live for a very long time in warmer climates if there is no frost threat.
The Zaatar seedlings in my gardens volunteered on their own, some have their true leaves and some do not.
I knew that last night was going to be a hard frost and I told myself that I am going to have nature take its course and if the seedlings do not make it thru the night, then that is the way it has to be.
I went out really early this morning to look at the fate of the Zaatar and found the seedlings were healthy and COVERED with frost. If you click on the image you will see how hard the frost was on these amazing, tenacious seedlings.
