    Normal antifreeze that is meant for automobiles is almost always deadly for plants if they are exposed to significant quantities of the liquid. However, scientists have developed an antifreeze spray named Freeze-Pruf which is designed to help plants survive weather colder than they normally would be able to.

    The anti-freeze for cars is usually Ethylene Glycol, which is toxic for plants and animals, and usually causes death or low growth rates in plants. However, there are several less toxic types of anti-freeze, including glycoprotein, a protein made by fish living in the colder parts of the ocean. Other animals also produce natural anti-freeze, and it may be this type that is used in Freeze-Pruf.
