Customer Reviews for Frost Blanket
OMG just love the frost blankets. People in Myrtle Beach said you can't grow queen palms. I bought the frost blankets and my queens survived the worst winter ever.... while everyone elses queen palms died.
Frost blanket is poor quality. It ripped the first season.
I've used row covers for years in Massachusetts to overwinter vegetables. This frost blanket is not designed to handle snow and wind and it ripped the first year. I have one frost blanket that is no longer available that has lasted 15 years. This current product is designed to degrade quickly.
The 24'x 100' is two 12' sewn together with plastic thread. It can be used for more than 1 year. It will not cause frost burn like plastic sheeting does.
Saved my plants!
I was in a panic trying to find something to cover my plants for the unusual and long lasting freeze we had in Houston. I have a large landscaped yard and needed to cover large areas. Frost blankets were sold out at all of the local stores. This was the only place that could express ship me the quantity and size I needed. It arrived in the nick of time and saved my plants. The frost blanket stayed on for 3 days before the freeze lifted. I will definitely be better prepared next time and have some stored in my garage.
I have never been so pleased in my life with the help I received today on my order! I was in a jam and needed a product, like yesterday. M. took my call and was beyond helpful. I will forever use A.M. Leonard for what ever I can!
Wow...what a difference the frost blanket makes!
We ordered the 6' x 250' roll of heavy weight frost blanket. Normally everything dies out in our garden in December. So far we are still able to have turnips, mustard, onions,and garlic even though we had night time temperatures as low as 13 for several nights in December, as well as 2 ice storms and 3 inches of snow. The fabric is really tough and yet still allows light and rain through. Great product.
