Love the Planket. It is large enough for a planting bed (which I don't yet have), I have lots of new plants in large pots on my deck, and would have had to replace them a number of times if I hadn't had the Planket to protect them on nights when the temps fall below freezing.

Rated 5 out of 5Â by Phil A life saver for our fragile hedge!
We recently had a hedge in front of our Poinciana, Florida home replaced by our landscaper. He planted, at our request, a 20 foot row and a 10 foot row of Ixora, which isn't very tolerant to cold weather. When the pending frost was coming we went to Home Depot and purchased 2 packages of Plankets. Having gone the way of using bath towels and other material in the past, we found that Plankets were exactly the answer to our needs. They came with long pins to hold them in place, and were easily installed. Best of all, they protected our Ixora from several occasions of frosty nights!

Rated 5 out of 5Â by cats5 Pleasant surprise!
To my surprise, the Planket plant cover exceeded my expectations. First of all it's green, so blends in with landscape. Secondly, it's waterproof (or seems to be) and that keeps the wet off the plants in the cold. We had 4-5 days of below freezing weather & I covered my begonia's & ginger plant. They did not escape unscathed, but the cover was a huge help in protecting my plants. This version is very large and bigger than I needed, but I'm glad I have it. For years I've seen plant covers for cold weather on other people's lawns. I thought I could do better with blankets & sheets, but no longer.

Rated 3 out of 5Â by cajunrider Does what it is supposed to do though (cover) flimsy
No plant cover-up will protect your plants from freezing without a source of heat. The temperature underneath the cover-up will be the same as the temperature on the other side unless you add heat and even then you must completely cover the plants. Most outdoor plants are known to be healthy down to around 20 degrees anyway.
These are pretty flimsy and the grommets pull out easily. I had to fold several layers together and use safety pins to attach two covers together because the material holding the grommets was so flimsy. They breathe, which is good, but they are so thin they don't do much but protect from frost. They will not insulate. Use a regular blanket with a heat source but take the blanket off as soon as possible.
