Frost Blankets for Cold Weather Protection

Whether you’re a market grower or a home gardener, these useful frost blankets can help protect your crops from damaging frost. Unlike bedsheets, heavy-weight fabrics, and other covers- frost blankets are designed to protect plants without the risk of damage as they dry quickly and allow proper airflow. 

Features

  • Extends the growing season for both fall and spring crops
  • Provides 5-10+ degrees of freeze protection depending on ambient humidity.
  • 40% light transmission
  • Frost blankets are designed to help hold in heat
  • It is porous and allows rain and overhead irrigation to pass-through
  • Minimizes plant burns
  • Help prevent erosion from soil and seed due to heavy rainfalls
  • Keeps insects and other unwanted variables off of the growing beds
  • Help overwinter ornamentals and other perennials
  • Made from a polypropylene felt material that will allow rain and a percentage of light to pass through.

Frost Blanket Weights

Bootstrap Farmer carries frost blankets in several weights. They are available in 1.5 oz, 2.5 oz, and 4.0 oz.

Fabric Weight (oz.) Transparency (%) Est. Temp Above Outside (°F)
1.5  85 4-6
2.5 30 10
4.0 20 15

*These temperature estimates are based on daytime temperatures above freezing. Individual results will vary based on growing zone and location.


We recommend the 4.0 oz frost blanket for extra protection before a frost. It can be used with a 2.5 oz blanket for layered protection. The additional weight of this blanket provides approximately 4-8+ more protection than the 2.5 oz blanket.

The frost blanket can last up to three years when properly taken care of and stored. Make sure the blanket is dry, and store it away from direct sunlight.

Fertilization

Fertilization

It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
