Walls O Water
A wall of water is a plastic flexible cylinder with tubes embedded around its circumference. When the tubes are filled with water and a little micro climate is created that protects a single plant inside the wall of water from cold temperatures and cold winds.
Fill the tubes of these plant protectors with water, and you can plant earlier and harvest later!
Add 8 weeks to your growing season! Fill the tubes of these self-standing plant protectors with water, and they provide additional heat, allowing you to plant earlier and harvest later. Protects plants down to 16 degrees-F! Reusable. 18" diam. x 18" high
"The most efficient way to keep plants protected from freezing weather." Wall O Waters enable organic gardeners to start tomatoes, peppers, squash, or other plants 6-8 weeks earlier, without fear of freezing. Plants will be healthier and produce up to twice the fruit 30-40 days earlier. Protects down to 16º F. Each Wall O Water encircles an 18" diameter area. Lasts 3-5 years.
Six steps for proper WOW use:
1.) Set Wallo' Waters up where you will plant a full six to eight weeks before the last normal frost date for your area. These plant protectors give your plants more time to grow. If you don't use the time it will be lost.
2.) Set up one week before transplanting to warm the soil. This is very important. We all understand that if you transplant into cold soil you may easily stunt the plant's development.
3.) When you first set them up fill them only two thirds full and they will fold together at the top like a little teepee. Leave them in the teepee night and day as long as the plant is small.
4.) We recommend that you use small plants. Three to four inch plants usually have less trouble with transplant shock.
5.) After several weeks the plants will start to push through the opening at the top. You can now completely fill the Wallo' Water and it will remain open. Leave it open, night and day, until it is time to take it off.
6.) Keep them on until 30 - 45 days after the last normal frost date. Don't get in a hurry to take them off. They will never overheat the plant as long as you follow these steps. It is important to take advantage of the additional heat provided during this final month when you still have cool nights.
