The original Wall O’ Water is still the best way to plant earlier and harvest longer. You can plant 6 to 8 weeks prior to the last frost when using a Wall O Water. It works well for most fruits and vegetables, but particularly well for tomatoes and peppers.
Fill the tubes of these self-standing plant protectors with water, and they provide additional heat for plants, so you can plant earlier and harvest later. Protects plants down to 16 degrees F. Reusable. 18” diam. x 18” high. Each Wall O Water encircles an 18-inch diameter area and should last 3 to 5 years. Made is USA.
Step 1: Set Wallo’ Waters up where you will plant a full six to eight weeks before the last frost date for your area. These plant protectors give your plants more time to grow. If you don’t use the time it will be lost.
Step 2: Set up one week before transplanting to warm the soil. This is very important. We all understand that if you transplant into cold soil you may easily stunt the plant’s development.
Step 3: When you first set them up fill them only two thirds full and they will fold together at the top like a little teepee. Leave them in the teepee night and day as long as the plant is small.
Step 4: We recommend that you use small plants. Three to four inch plants usually have less trouble with transplant shock.
Step 5: After several weeks the plants will start to push through the opening at the top. You can now completely fill the Wallo’ Water and it will remain open. Leave it open, until it is removed.
Step 6: Keep them on until 30 – 45 days after the last normal frost date. Don’t get in a hurry to take them off. They will never overheat the plant as long as you follow these steps. It is important to take advantage of the additional heat provided during this final month when you still have cool nights.
