On frosty days you should not stop protecting your plants, especially the most delicate, the youngest and the newly planted ones, which will be unable to withstand the intense cold and frost without suffering damage, often irreparable.
To protect them, there are everything from covers, veils and hibernation cloaks to removable greenhouses. If the soil in the pots or in the garden is covered with snow, do not remove it, it will protect the roots from the lower temperatures.
The hibernation mantles adapt to the size of the plants. When temperatures begin to drop below 6 degrees, many plants need to be brought under cover, especially the less rustic ones, those that have just been planted or transplanted, young trees and some palm trees. In these cases, the mulching that serves to cushion the roots is not enough, it is also necessary to cover the aerial part.
To protect plants from the cold and the wind, you now have covers of different sizes and hibernation blankets made of natural or biodegradable materials. The moisture they need is guaranteed by the cover, which absorbs that from the environment and releases it little by little. Its texture and color are a plus and it can be left on all winter.
However, there are plants for which a mantle or cover can be found on a balcony or terrace, which are removed and stored when the risk of frost has passed.
They usually have a steel or iron structure, several shelves to place the pots and a transparent cover, usually with two zippers for easy access. One of the most innovative has a transparent film cover for spring and a translucent hibernation cover for the colder months.
