When to Use

Use in Early Season

Remember that frost frequently occurs AFTER the "last AVERAGE frost date".

get a strong gardening start for garden beds and container plantsBegin using Frost Protek® fabric covers once plants start to bud or on seedlings and annuals just home from the nursery. Get plants off to a good start for the new season by creating a mini-greenhouse using your Frost Protek® covers.

In addition, be prepared for bad weather. Spring weather can be unpredictable and you never know when a cold spell or storm may come along and damage your new plants.

  • use as a mini-greenhouse over young plants and seedlings to get an early start
  • protect from spring frost, cold nights, wind and rain storms
  • protect from pests (they especially like young, tender foliage!)

Use in Middle Season

Keep plants healthy through the growing season. Protect them from pests and unseasonable weather.

  • protect from damaging weather such as a cold spell, wind and rain storms
  • protect from damaging pests such as beetles, grasshoppers, birds, rabbits, deer, and others

Use in Late Season

Enjoy fully grown decorative plantings as long as possible — you nurtured them all season so you could.

Enjoy the tomatoes and other produce you anticipated all season. Enable them to ripen on the vine as long as possible— don't let a cold spell kill plants or produce prematurely. And, especially, make sure YOU get to enjoy the fruits of your labor, not birds, deer, or insects! 

  • keep plants alive when early frost and other damaging weather occurs 
  • protect from damaging pests such as beetles, grasshoppers, birds, rabbits, deer, and others.


Store Covers After the Growing Season 

When annuals die back due to a hard freeze or perennials lose their foliage, be sure to remove your covers and store them until the next growing season. 

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