Remember that frost frequently occurs AFTER the "last AVERAGE frost date".
Begin 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.
Keep plants healthy through the growing season. Protect them from pests and unseasonable weather.
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!
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.
