Thermacrop, Garden Fleece Alternative
A stronger, easier to handle, longer lasting fabric which works just like our garden fleece but has a life expectancy of 5 years. Made from woven strips of a very soft polyethylene. When laid over crops, the added warmth will encourage the growth of seeds and young plants.
Protect early crops and tender plants down to -3ºC
UV stabilised. Water, light and air can pass through the material.
Can be washed on a ‘wool’ cycle in the washing machine.
How to use : Cover the crop immediately after sowing or planting and secure on all sides. Allow some slack for the crop to grow. Crops should not remain covered for more than six to eight weeks. Potatoes may be covered until the danger of frost has passed. Melons and courgettes can be covered for longer periods as they like a more humid environment. To avoid your plants suffering "shock", remove Thermacrop during mild conditions (avoid bright sunshine and low temperatures).
Watering/Feeding: Just water and feed through the netting.
Cutting: Thermacrop can be cut with scissors
Care: Thermacrop can be washed on a "wool" cycle in the washing machine. It should last several years.
Note: Remove during flowering if crops depend on pollination by bees
Made from strips of a very soft polyethylene
Thermacrop allows 87% light through
Protects down to -3ºC
