Frost/Winter Protection Blankets are one of the most cost effective ways to protect your plants from frost damage. With proper care these polypropylene blankets will last for several seasons. Water and air easily passes through and the white color enables you to leave the blankets on during an unseasonably warm day.
Our Frost Blankets protect your plants from exposure to storm, hail, snow, rain, while allowing light, water and air to go through.
They also aid in the germination of newly planted seeds by shielding seeds from erosion and reducing weed growth. They’re widely used on riverbeds, hills, culvert inlets and outfalls, and channel and ditch linings.

Do Frost Blankets Really Work?
A common question we encounter is: Do these plant blankets genuinely offer protection? The answer is a resounding YES. The science behind our frost blanket is simple yet effective.
When temperatures plummet, the frost blanket traps a layer of air between the plant and the environment, acting as an insulator.
This prevents the freezing temperatures from causing frost damage to your plants. The efficiency is not just in theory; countless gardeners have witnessed its protective wonders, making it a reliable cover for plants against the cold.

As winter approaches and temperatures begin to dip, don't leave your plants exposed. With Farm Plastic Supply's frost blankets, equip yourself with a reliable and effective cover, ensuring that your gardening endeavors are fruitful and your plants remain protected.
Proper Application: How to Use Our Frost Blankets Effectively
Frost blankets can be installed on row crops with low-tunnel hoops or laid directly on the plants you wish to protect. The blanket can be anchored with landscape fabric pins, rocks, or sandbags.
When used without hoops, frost blankets are commonly referred to as floating row covers. This is because their light weight allows them to essentially “float” above your plants only resting on the tips of the leaves.
For plants it is good to tie them with rope to make sure that they stay on the plant, if so use our Sisal Plant Rope when doing it.
You will want to install the frost blanket before the frost sets in. When the sun comes out, and all danger of frost has passed, remove the covering and fold and store correctly.
It is vital that you remove when the temperature rises above 50 degrees as this will create too much heat for your plants underneath the blanket. If soiled, you can lightly rinse the fabric with cool water and let air dry completely before storing.

Farm Plastic Supply isn't just about selling frost blankets; it's about endorsing a sustainable way of gardening. Our frost blanket range is environmentally friendly, ensuring your plants get the protection they need without harming the planet.

Expert Tips and Tricks for Frost Blanket Care
Maintaining your frost blanket ensures it remains effective season after season. Here are some tips:
- After the frost season, clean your blanket by shaking off any debris and giving it a gentle wash.
- Dry the frost blanket completely before storing to prevent mildew or mold.
- Fold and store in a cool, dry place, away from direct sunlight to preserve its protective properties.
- Inspect the blanket before reuse, ensuring no tears or holes are present. This ensures optimal protection for your plants and trees.
Will A Frost Blanket Protect From A Freeze?
Yes, a frost blanket is designed to offer protection during freezing conditions. By creating an insulating layer, it prevents the harsh cold from affecting the plant cells, which can cause them to burst and damage the plant.
The trapped warmth under the frost blanket ensures a consistent temperature, safeguarding your plants from sudden temperature drops and frosts.
How Long Can You Leave Plant or Frost Blankets On A Plant?
While frost blankets are excellent for protection, they should not be left on plants indefinitely. On average, it's best to remove the blanket during the daytime, allowing plants to breathe and receive sunlight.
If continuous frost is expected for several days, it's okay to leave them on, but ensure the plants get some exposure to natural light and air once the frost threat has passed.
