Paint or spray Greenhouse Shading onto the outside of your greenhouse or cold frame and prevent soaring temperatures and direct sunlight damaging your vegetable and ornamental seedlings inside.
Each box of this spray or paint on shading contains 3 x 600ml sachets (enough to cover 5m²) along with a cleaner sachet which makes removing the protective white shad paint a simple wipe-clean task once those heady days of summer are a distant memory; and with the combined coverage of the 3 sachets an impressive 15m², greenhouses and cold frames will take on that fully protected, professional shade look.
The greenhouse shade paint will even become transparent in wet weather so light levels are maintained; mixing up each sachet in water and applying is quick and easy and the shade paint is safe to use around children, pets and wildlife.
Paint the greenhouse shade onto your glass in late March, wipe off in October and enjoy the benefits and technology with the professionals!

I have used this product for years. Excellent and easy to use. I find applying it with a paint roller attached to a broom handle works perfectly. No need to wash greenhouse first, in fact it adheres better if you don't. Simply rub off with a duster tied round a mop or broom at the end of the summer. No need for ladders! Odd splashes here and there do no harm and can be washed off.
Our horticulturist Martin Fiddes says; "Protecting seedlings and even heat loving plants from the searing rays of the summer sun is essential to their well-being and using shade netting or greenhouse shading paint is traditionally the best method.
"The age old problem though has been allowing light levels to remain constant when the sun doesn’t shine and this paint – which becomes transparent in wet weather – seems to have the answer.
"Use shade netting or paint in conjunction with automatic vents, maximum/minimum thermometers, cooling fans and louvre windows to help maintain airflow, keep temperatures down under glass and stop plants from wilting and scorching this year.”
