|I have recently found out that the damage from freeze damage can be reduced in grain crops and onions by providing them with extra potassium. Does anyone know if peppers and tomatoes benefit from extra doses of phosphorus or potash to help avoid damage from cold weather. When moving my plants in and out on the warm days and cold days I am wondering if an extra dose of potassium would be helpful?|
edited: sorry I had typed in potassium and it should have been phosphorus or potash.

please see my edit above, sorry.
Here is the dixiondale video that alerted me to the use of potash to protect onions from freeze damage. The part about the freeze damage is toward the end but the complete video is about fertilizing onions.
