We have developed a variety of plant covers for cold weather -- regardless of the season. For winter, we have a few options to protect your shrubs. But sometimes that cold weather hits right after you've planted your garden in the spring. You may also be looking to extend the growing season for your veggies into the fall. If you have questions, feel free to reach out to our team of gardeners who staff the phones here in Vermont. We're happy to help you select the products that will work best for your site, climate, and planting plans.
