Weather Protection

plant killed by frostFrost Protek™ fabric covers protect plants from frost and other damaging weather conditions during the growing season. Also use them in the early growing season to transition young seedlings and plants from the greenhouse to the yard to give them a strong start.

Plants can be prematurely killed or damaged by frost. Annual plants and native warm climate plants are especially vulnerable to damage.

Container plantings and hanging baskets are particularly susceptible to frost damage because the roots are above ground and therefore don't have the added warmth that the ground holds.

Better Protection    Frost Protek™ covers protect plants better than makeshift items such as sheets, blankets, and plastic. These other items can suffocate plants when left on very long and can crush flowers and foliage. The Frost Protek™ cover is made of the same fabric used by commercial growers for plant protection. Its drawstring closure keeps the cover in place and holds in warmth around the plant. 

Leave on Indefinitely    In bad weather, Frost Protek™ covers may be left on the plant indefinitely as needed. There's no need to remove the cover each morning and replace it each evening. The cover is made of lightweight, breathable fabric that enables air and sun light to reach the plant.

Frost and Cold Weather

Frost Protek™ covers protect plants from light frost damage. The cover protects 4°F to 6°F below freezing (to about 26°F or -3.0° C).  

The fabric covers also insulate plants from cool nights or unseasonably cool weather.

Rain and Wind   protect your plants and gardens

Frost Protek™ covers help protect plants from damage due to heavy rain. Too much water can drown plants, and potted plants are especially vulnerable to drainage problems.

The covers also protect foliage and blossoms from damage due to strong wind. Placing Frost Protek™ fabric covers over your plants during a sudden wind can preserve the beautiful blooms.

Plants can also be damaged when transported by vehicle, and the Frost Protek™ cover helps protect plants during transit.

Store Covers After the Growing Season

Once annuals die due to a hard freeze or perennials lose their foliage and enter dormancy, remove your covers and store them until the next growing season.

Covers left on bare bushes or other plants are susceptible to being punctured or torn, making them less effective for the next growing season. Store covers away from the sun or other direct UV light to prolong the life of the fabric.
