Winter is a challenge for the gardener, that's why we recommend this commercial quality frost-busting plant fleece. The permeable, white UV stabilised, spun-bonded 2mm square mesh 30gsm gardening fleece protects against frost, wind, hail, birds and insects.
Unlike many imitations our polyester yarn fleece has been manufactured with UV stabilisers for longer life - so won't disintegrate or tear - yet soft and light enough to be placed directly over plants. Can also be used to help to warm up the soil to achieve earlier harvesting of healthy crops.
This quality horticultural fleece is available in 2m & 4m widths and comes in great value Saver Packs.
2m x 10m = £11.95 (GNE-064)
2m x 25m = £25.95 (GDN-033)

Being 4m wide found fleece very easy to use to cove large shrubs
The original fleece tore within weeks of being purchased in the Spring; the replacement the company sent which was only used this week for the first time has also now got holes in it and interestingly a slug also burrowed a very small hole through it! I shall have to consider buying some horticultural plastic covering instead. The metal support hoops and the clips are great and I want to continue using them but without a stronger material cover it is pointless.
Many thanks for taking the time to send a review on the Insulating Fleece, which you purchased from ourselves earlier this year.
We rely greatly on comments from our customers to drive our policy of continual improvement in both the products we supply and the service we offer and are most grateful for your views.
The Insulating Fleece is designed to just drape over plants to protect plants against frost, wind and birds. It is not really suitable and strong enough to be used to with hoops and clips, which will tear the material.
Instead of using Fleece for this purpose, we would advise purchasing Insect Mesh instead, which is a much stronger material.
Hopefully this information is of help to you, but if you do have any further queries, please do not hesitate in contacting us and we will be happy to help you.
Thank you once again for your comments and we look forward to the prospect of being of service to you in the future.
EXPERT FLEECE ADVICE
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?
