Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

@rmplmnz Do you know if anyone grows bananas on the area that comes out west of bradenton. Seems like they would be very warm.

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

Every once in a while you just get these events where there is no hope. Occasionally (every 20-25 years) we'll get an advectional freeze where the wind blows out of the NNE and the lake doesn't help...

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

If you are on the north side of a body of water it means absolutely nothing IF you are in a region that gets cold, as in, into the teens as far as the zone is rated, like where I live in Mandeville,...

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

The bigger the body of water the larger the effect. If you are near the ocean then the effect is HUGE, and for a very large area (just look at a zone map and how zone 8 stretches up the east coast...

It definitely helps being near the water. I'm behind the dike that surrounds Lake Okeechobee. It's such a large body of water that it's effect are felt over quite a long distance. The most...

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

I think the temperature is what makes the big difference. Temps can be 100 here and 70 at the beach midday, or 35 at night here and maybe 40ish at the beach. The only time it ever gets hot at the...

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

Yes but it is all relative.

The mass of water is definately going to help relative to the strength of the air mass and the temperature differential.

In Pensacola and all along the Gulf Coast we...

It definitely helps.

Nicolas Naranja is one of the members who takes advantage of the regulating effect of big bodies of water, as his backyard borders the levee of a large lake.

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

I found several people on palmtalk that mention micro-climates along canals. They claimed 2-5 degrees warmer near the canal.

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

Here in Southern California proximity to the ocean makes a big difference. There are some plants that are tough to grow here that grow no problem 20 miles away at the beach.

Re: Does being waterfront help with how cold it gets for frost protection?

I think it helps, I am in zone 9 and about 3 miles north of the Gulf of Mexico and it's always a little warmer there compared to the northerly direction. It's just my opinion though.

After looking at your Raja Puri I think my Goldfinger may be a Raja Puri. What do you think?

It is better to be late than not do it at all. But in all honesty and for good judgment, it would really depend on your implementation. There are some who could really use the extra things and...
