FreezePruf Info Sheet

FreezePruf


It's like anti-freeze, for your plants.

A scientific-breakthrough – this eco-safe spray actually improves healthy plants' natural cold tolerance by approximately 2° to 9° F, depending on the variety of plant and the duration/intensity of frost or freeze event. Developed by botanists, FreezePruf protects the plant externally and internally by enhancing both its natural "anti-freeze" like properties and its ability to survive ice crystal damage. The biodegradable formula is designed to resist washing away by rain or snow and application lasts up to 4 weeks with normal precipitation.

It's like moving your temperature zone 200 miles south!

FreezePruf's easy-to-use, biodegradable formulation and mode of action adds a half-USDA Zone equivalent or more to the cold tolerance range of all major ornamentals and crops. So, a plant that is hardy to the low-to-mid teens Fahrenheit (Zone 8a) can be grown with little or no damage in Zone 7b.

 

Plant earlier, harvest later

You can play the guessing game as to when the last Spring, or the first Fall frost will occur and arm yourself with everything from smudge pots to blankets to protect your plants, often with poor results.
Or, you can stop guessing! Although FreezePruf may be applied at any temperature above freezing and will produce benefits as soon as plant surfaces dry, best results will be obtained when applied at temperatures above 50˚F and a minimum of 8 to 12 hours before an anticipated freeze. FreezePruf may also be applied seasonally, in anticipation of future cold events within the upcoming 4 weeks. Since FreezePruf extends the growing season, it's perfect for perennials as well as fruit and vegetable plants. The guaranteed protection lasts up to 4 weeks.

 

Easy-to-use

Spray liberally to entire plant. Protection lasts up to 4 weeks with normal precipitation. If frequent heavy rain or snow events have occurred, FreezePruf should be reapplied after 2 to 4 weeks. For added protection, reapply as new growth appears.


 

Protects foliage and flowers

FreezePruf is a water-based, eco-safe spray that enhances the plant's natural mechanisms to resist freeze damage, shielding it from ice crystal damage, and increasing its ability to survive cold temperatures by reducing the freezing point of water inside the tissues of the plant.

 

Frequently asked questions about FreezePruf


Does it really work?
FreezePruf has the unique ability to reduce both the freezing point of water inside plant tissues and ice crystal damage when ice does form, thus enhancing a plant's natural ability to survive cold temperatures," says Dr. David Francko, a botanist at the University of Alabama and lead developer of Freeze Pruf. "Plants can be frozen solid and still be viable."

How do I apply FreezePruf?
Although FreezePruf may be applied at any temperature above freezing and will produce benefits as soon as plant surfaces dry, best results will be obtained when applied at temperatures above 50˚F and a minimum of 8 to 12 hours before an anticipated freeze. FreezePruf may also be applied seasonally, in anticipation of future cold events within the upcoming 4 weeks. Spray liberally to entire plant.

How often do I have to apply the spray?
Protection lasts up to 4 weeks with normal precipitation. If frequent heavy rain or snow events have occurred, FreezePruf should be reapplied after 2 to 4 weeks. For added protection, reapply as new growth appears.


Is it safe for kids and pets?
Yes, it's an eco-safe, biodegradable product. When used as directed, it will cause no harm to humans, animals or the environment.


Will it harm my plants?
Absolutely not.
