Protect Plants from Frost

by Charlie Nardozzi

Frost is threatening in many areas, if it hasn?t already hit. However, many plants are still looking good in the garden, and perhaps you?re not ready to give them up just yet. If you have a prized tomato, eggplant, pepper, rose, or other large plant, you can protect them with a fleece hood. These UV-stabilized polypropylene hoods stand 2 feet 4 inches wide and 4 feet 9 inches tall. They can protect the foliage, flowers, and fruits from temperatures down to 28 degrees F. They also protect the plants from high winds and insects, while still allowing light, water, and air to penetrate.

For more information on these fleece frost protectors, go to: NGA Garden Shop.
