WHAT IS FROST?
Frost occurs when there’s little cloud cover or wind conditions. Soil cools very fast and all the cold air will sink. This is the point where the temperature drops below freezing (0°C). Water vapor will settle on the leaves, freeze and form white crystals which rupture cells damaging the plants.
