General recommendations during frost

Ground frost can cause damage to plants and crops, as well as hamper construction work. The major factors contributing to the formation of frost are the minimum temperature on a given night, the amount of cloud cover, and wind.

Various protective measures can be taken to limit frost damage:

  • Cover plants with a protective layer ; place potted plants against a house wall since they are particularly susceptible to frost damage.
  • Protect building sites and any construction materials on the site against frost damage.
