How to protect Pansies from frost? Hello plant lovers welcome again to another topic about Pansy plants, in this topic we are going to tell you how to protect not only your Pansies but your plants from frost.

There are times in early spring months when you get frost warning and there are always one or two plants that come up to growth earlier than expected and you need to protect them.

Protecting

Pansies are cold tolerant plants but if weather goes to freezing level that is time to protect your plant no matter how cold tolerant your plants are, specially Pansies.

 Well here is an Idea, first thing is if you can transfer them into your home or at least a place where temperature is stabilized and would not hurt the plant.

But if you planted them In garden and you cannot transfer them here is how you can protect your plants.

Horticultural Fleece

Horticultural fleece is amazing lightweight woven fabric.

So when you cut the amount you need, all you have to do is to put the fabric over the plant and be sure that it is all covered and there is no way for cold to get in.
by this I mean to cover the plant with the fleece like it cannot move, put the edges of the fleece under the pot or if you planted them on the ground put some stone or some weight on the edges so it cannot move.

This basically keeps the atmosphere and the temperature within where the plants are above one or two degrees higher than it is outside and it stops your plant from getting frost bitten.

Milk Jars

You might think I am joking but you are wrong, using milk jars help a lot preventing frost bite in plants.

This method works for small plants, because you know, milk jars are not that big so if you have couple of small plant and you cannot find Horticultural Fleece, this is a really good option also because milk jars are free you can do it without spending any money.

All you need to do is to cut the bottom part of the milk jar and put it over the plant, if you cannot stick it on the soil and you afraid it might fall off try to cover the edges of the jar and then try to stick it in the ground.

warning

Be sure pick them up the jars in the morning especially when sun is up otherwise it will cook the plant inside the jar.
