A plant cover can serve many purposes. One of the many purposes is that it keeps the plant literally sheltered from all wind. Have you ever watched in horror as some of your plants get tossed around from high winds as you pray that they won't tear into pieces. Mother nature is unpredictable and unless a storm is in the forecast, it's usually difficult to tell what days are going to be windy. Covering your plant from high winds is actually a pretty challenging task. If you have a greenhouse or cold frame, then you're in pretty good shape. But for most of us that don't have those, how can you protect your plants from damaging wind? Garden cloches work very well in blocking the wind. I'm sure there's lots of creative ways of blocking the wind from your plants, but using cloches is pretty much as easy as it gets.
