Then it is easily happened that the farms go out in the greenhouse or in the garden before the risk of frostnätter is completely over. But oh so much you can undo when you are standing there among the wilting tomato plants, brown dahlias, and stendöda gurkplantor when the temperature slipped down below zero."
"What can you do to prevent the merciless frostdöden? We asked the gardener Bosse Rappne at Ulriksdal palace garden about his best tricks to keep the plants alive in freezing temperatures."
"– to start with, so you should of course not be in such a hurry to take out the plants. We nag us to death in our customers to not set out sensitive plants as long as frostnätterna holds in itself, " says Bosse Rappne. Here at the Museum gardens behind the we in and out the plants all the time to save them. Last week, we have been carrying out all the maples so they don't get frostbite, then they not sell."

"– What is needed in a greenhouse is a heat source but also a fan that whisks around the air. You have only one element, the risk is that the heat rises and finally opens the shutters, and then it becomes really cold. A regular heater is more than enough for a greenhouse of 8-10 square meters, " says Bosse Rappne. "

"– It is at the windows it is kyligast, " says Bosse Rappne. Risk it to be many degrees below zero it can be good to hang up bubble wrap or a blanket or similar so it creates an additional air gap as protection against the cold."
"Stand plants outdoors so you get to move them in or cover with a sheet of filter cloth or at least set them in the ceiling if the temperature drops. Frostnätterna can last until June depending on where in the country you live."
