The anti- frost fabric is the perfect option to protect not very large plants that have been with us for a short time or that are a bit on the limit. It has many qualities: it allows water to pass through but not the wind, it maintains the heat that emanates from the ground and from the plant itself, thus achieving a temperature up to 4 degrees higher than outside, and it is also very light and easy to install. . We can get it at nurseries and garden stores.

When you have many plants, it is best to build a greenhouse or buy one. Although we do not have much space, today it is easy to make one, for example, using an aluminum shelf or a plastic table .

If autumn or winter has fallen upon us and we have not thought about building a greenhouse or buying an anti-frost fabric, or if we are more interested in enjoying the plants in another way, we can choose to bring them into the house. Placed in a room with plenty of natural light , away from drafts (both cold and warm), they are sure to make it to spring safe and sound .
