Shielding your vulnerable plants during weeks of freezing weather is a crucial practice that can make a significant difference in the overall health and survival of your garden. When temperatures plummet, plants face the risk of frost damage, which can lead to wilting, browning, and even death. Covering your plants acts as a protective barrier, offering insulation against the harsh elements.

The cover, be it frost cloth or burlap, serves as a shield against frost, preventing ice crystals from forming on the plant’s surface and causing cellular damage. This protective layer also helps to retain heat absorbed during the day, providing a more stable and moderate temperature throughout the night. Additionally, covering plants acts as a buffer against biting winds, which can exacerbate the chilling effect on plants.

By investing a little time and effort in covering your vulnerable plants, you create a microenvironment that mimics more favorable conditions, reducing the risk of frostbite and ensuring the well-being of your garden. It’s a simple yet effective strategy that pays off in the long run, allowing your plants to thrive despite the challenges presented by freezing temperatures.
