How To Protect Your Plants From The Cold – Gardening Tips

Today is the first day of meteorological winter, which is the perfect excuse to tell you about Early Starter – our plant treatment that protects plants against the cold.

In England, where Bio8 is based, the weather can be unpredictable. This is because we’re on an island and the weather is affected by the sea surrounding us. We don’t get a lot of extreme weather – it’s not too cold and almost never too hot, but unfortunately, unlike Goldilocks’ porridge, it’s not just right either.

This is why we developed a range of products to help serious gardeners protect their plants. Early Starter is an advanced bio-stimulant that adjusts the biology of the plant to encourage the roots to grow deeper and stronger over the cold period. Basically, it tells the plant to stop growing aerially and concentrate on root growth. This gives it better access to nutrients and water from the soil which makes it more resistant to frost damage.

The pièce de résistance of Early Starter though, is the improved growth that it gives the plant. Because of the improved root structure, the plant benefits from the nutrients and water it couldn’t access before which means that, even if the cold never comes, your money isn’t wasted!

We launched the product just over a year ago and have seen some really positive responses from customers and even from some celebrities of the gardening world. We sent a bottle over to BBC Radio 2’s Gardening Expert, Terry Walton; who said:

“This is definitely part of my ‘armoury’ in future. Based on my results I would strongly recommend it to any gardener looking to grow in the early season when the weather is cold.”

We’d still recommend using plant blankets and other frost protection methods because, when it comes to your plants, you can never have too much protection! For more information on Early Starter or to buy it for just £11.95, click here.

    I always say, “If I’m going to give you one piece of gardening advice when it comes to keeping plants warm in cool months, it’s the same advice I’d give someone who was interested in buying a home: LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION.” But, now, I’m going to check out your Early Starter. Who knows – that may become my new go-to advice!
