Frost protection for plants in your garden or on the balcony
This concern is known to every gardener: Extremely cold winter can not only be dangeous for potted plants, but also for shrubs and trees in the garden. A safe winter protection for plants are the Kaizen heating cables, which are available in various lengths with and without thermostat. These heating cables are wrapped around tubs and trunks and ensure that the temperature does not drop too far, so ensure a reliable antifreeze.
Self regulated winter protection for plants
The heating cables of Kaizen are available in different variants: As a winter protection for plants controlled from a central ice and frost warning sytsem. That means several heating cables are controlled by one ore more temperature sensors. This makes sense if a winter protection is needed for larger quantity of plants. If you need winter protection for a few plants or if they are far apart, heating cables are useful that have a thermostat, which then individually switches on and off, as needed, which indeed may be highly dependent on the location.
Winter protection is not only important for potted pants
Although potted plants on balconies and terraces are more susceptible because the root ball can freeze, many young trees or shrubs are vulnerable in the garden in extreme cold. Especially when it comes to a quick cold snap, young trees need a winter protection for plants, because then it can happen, that root or or trunk may freeze if there is too much moisture is in them. The result: the whole trunk bursts. Only a few trees survive this. A heating cable is attached quickly and protects your valuable garden plants.
Conventional winter protection for plants by heating cable is often insufficient in length. Because if, for example, you have to wrapped in an olive or oleander tub and trunk, the cables available in do-it-yourself stores are usually too short. Kaizen heating cables are available in many, need based lengths and even from the roll when many plants require winter protection.
