Frost Protection

Gardening was a way of life growing up in my house, and frost was a serious consideration for all planting decisions.  When tender strawberry blossoms appeared earlier than usual, careful attention was given to the forecast and many times sheets and blankets were used to cover the plants, just in case.  Tomatoes were planted after the first full moon in May to avoid the damaging late spring frost.  And fall planting just did not occur, because of the risk of an early frost ruining all of the labor that goes into a second planting. 

Luckily, frost protection has advanced since then.  Gardeners don’t have to take as much of a risk when it comes to early or late frosts, thanks to FreezePruf.

FreezePruf is an innovative frost protection spray, that works on a cellular level to enhance the plants natural ability to survive freeze and ice crystal damage.  And FreezePruf improves a health plants cold tolerance from 2 – 9 ˚F, depending on the variety of the plant and the duration/intensity of the frost or freeze event.

FreezePruf can be applied as long as the temperature is above freezing, but best results will be obtained when applied at temperatures above 50˚F and a minimum of 8 to 12 hours before an anticipated freeze.  Because the biodegradable formula lasts 4-6 weeks, you can also protect your plants seasonally. If you choose to protect seasonally, any new growth should be sprayed as it appears, to make sure the entire plant is protected.

So stop worrying about frost and making it your first consideration when it comes to gardening throughout the seasons.  Give eco-friendly FreezePruf a try!  And be sure to check out our  effectiveness guide to see how FreezePruf will work on your plants in your garden.
