Frost can be both a blessing and a curse for gardeners. For example, Brussels sprouts taste much sweeter after being frosted, whereas tree blossom can be totally wiped out by an early or late frost. Here are some of the top plants for frost pockets.
Frost pockets are usually found where there are dips in the garden, so called because they allow cold air to collect at the bottom. It can affect all parts of the garden, but some parts more drastically than others. A pool of ground level morning mist, when other areas have cleared, is usually a sign of one.
Nearby hills can also cause problems on frosty nights as cold air collects on trees, sinks to the ground, then flows down the hill. It then collects in the low points of yours and your neighbours’ gardens.
