Few gardeners can resist trying to get tender seedlings like tomatoes, peppers and eggplant into the ground ahead of schedule.
These frost protectors allow you to do this by lengthening the growing season by up to 8 weeks. Basically a series of joined, flexible plastic tubes that are filled with water to make a freestanding cylinder 18" across, they protect newly transplanted seedlings with a wall of water that not only insulates, but actually releases warmth – yet still provides sufficient ventilation to keep daytime temperatures from soaring too high.
Even if an unusually late or early frost hits, the part of the plant inside the protector will be undamaged by freezing temperatures down to 16°F (-9°C).
They are a real assist to that coveted first tomato.
