I am very happy with this product. The quality is superior to what is available in our local garden centre and is very much cheaper. I have actually bought more than I needed but it will be a very handy supply to cover plants as and when. I have already noticed better germination of seeds which have been covered with the fleece
Delivery within two days, very pleased, good quality items.
EXPERT FLEECE ADVICE
Our horticulturalist, Martin Fiddes, was quoted in Telegraph Gardening on the subject of fleece and the benefits of using this material in the winter.
Here's what he had to say; "Fleece is the best option as a temporary protection against frost. It is light enough to be laid over plants without any support and easy to take up again. It comes in 17 gram and 30 gram weights; the 17 gram weight will protect to just below freezing, whereas the heavier 30g fleece will protect down to 28F-26F (-2C or -3C).
It’s important to remember to take up the fleece after frost has passed – it may keep plants snug but pests like it under there too. Fleece also blocks light at a time of year when light levels are low."
The article went on to say the following about other devices capable of warding off frosts. "...there are polythene, poly tunnels, lightweight cloche systems, ingenious support devices that convert raised beds into tunnels, and variations on the classic cold frame. Specialist suppliers such as Harrod Horticultural...are excellent one-stop shops for all plant protection supplies."
Can you manage without fleece and other such materials and products this winter, spring and autumn?
