Frequently Asked Questions - FAQ
Q. Is it OK to leave the Planket on for the entire Winter?
A. No, the Planket is designed to be used only for short periods during overnight frost and light freezes.
Q. Is the Planket waterproof?
A. Yes, the sheets and blankets you are currently using can soak up water and potentially damage tender plants. The Planket will not.
Q. Do I need to wash the Planket after use.
A. Under normal usage you should not have to wash the Planket. Since it is cinched to the pot or plant it should not come loose and contact dirt or mud. If it should become dirty you may wash it but the material is naturally repellant to dirt.
Q. What temperature will the Planket protect to?
A. Unfortunately there are too many variables to give an exact temperature. It will depend not only on air temperature but also wind conditions, humidity and the inherent resistance to cold of the particular plant. Any prolonged temperatures in the mid to low twenties should necessitate moving the plant to a warmer location.
Q. How do I know what size Planket to use?
A. Measure from the pot or base of the plant up and over the plant back down to the pot or base on the opposite side. In general, the 6 ft. unit will cover a plant 2ft. x 2ft., the 8 ft. unit will cover 3ft. x 3ft., and the 10ft. unit will cover 4ft. x 4ft.
LOOK what our customers are saying about the PLANKET !
"The PLANKET is a great product. My geraniums never even felt the frost! Seriously, they protect so well and it makes so much sense that they have a drawstring for efficiency. Thanks for the opportunity to give feedback on a product that's truly a necessity. "
"I bought my first Planket more than a year ago, hoping to prevent some prized outdoor plants from freezing. The Planket worked just as promised and I was thrilled to have something to use other than my sheets and quilts. Since then, I have acquired other sized Plankets and found great uses for them. I covered my dog house with a Planket to keep it warmer and dryer during cold, wet weather. I also use a Planket to cover the winshield of my car when there is ice.
"I just googled something like "protect plants frost" and your product came up. It's really the only thing out there. Lots of articles on making frames and covering with blankets or plastic, but yours is a unique product. I'm sure my aloe will appreciate it!"
