Directions for Use

  1. Fill the plastic tubes on the Kozy Coat® with water. An easy way to do this is to place the Kozy Coat® around a pail so it stands up straight.

  2. Position the Kozy Coat® in your garden over your plant. Adjust the Kozy Coat® into a teepee shape by making the bottom as wide as possible and gently squeeze the top together. If the garden soil is still cold (or even frozen!), place your Kozy Coats® on the soil for a week to 10 days. When the ground has been warmed, remove the Kozy Coat® and set your plant in the ground. Re-position the Kozy Coat® over your plant.

  3. When the weather is reliably warm (mid to late June), remove the Kozy Coat® and store for use next season. Some gardeners in regions with moderate climate prefer to leave Kozy Coats® on all summer. Peppers and Eggplants are heat-loving plants that will do better throughout the summer with a Kozy Coat®.

Tips for Use

The earlier you plant, the earlier you'll be picking. You don't have to worry about the heavy frost or late blizzards. Kozy Coats® will protect your plants through the worst spring weather. Even if the water in the Kozy Coat® turns to ice, your plant is still protected. The Kozy Coat® becomes an igloo, keeping in heat and warmth from the soil around your plants.

Look and ask for these early varieties of tomato seedlings.

Varieties such as Stupice, Sub-Arctic, Glacier and Siberia will produce ripe tomatoes in as few as 45 days after you plant the young plants under a Kozy Coat®. Be sure to always plant a few of these varieties in addition to your regular favorites to ensure a full season of enjoyment.
