Environmesh tunnel kit
Cucumbers, melons and courgettes will benefit from long term covering with fleece as they prefer a more humid environment.
When the fleece is removed the plants may suffer 'shock'. To reduce this shock effect, remove the cover only during mild conditions, not during periods of bright sunlight or low temperatures.
Can you re-use the envirofleece?
The fleece may be washed at a low temperature using a mild detergent.
Crops and supple plants will need to be protected early against the weather, pests, and damage from little birds. Light and water can pass through the envirofleece.
How to use envirofleece on your vegetables and salad crops
You will need to cover the crop right after sowing or planting and fix the fleece on all sides. It is advisable to fold the edge to give a double layer and fix every 15m with Tri-Pegs, stones or timber.
How to use envirofleece on your supple plants and shrubs
These should be loosely wrapped and fixed with string if frost is likely to be due. It is advisable to use Envirofleece 30g for this purpose for added insulation.
How to use envirofleece in the greenhouse
Loosely hang the fleece over fragile plants if there is a risk of frost. If the frost forecast is heavy a double layer can be used.
How to use envirofleece for seed trays and cuttings
Seeds and cuttings can be covered progressively which will help prevent moisture loss and aid propagation.
How to reseed your lawn
When reseeding, cover with envirofleece straight after sowing. This protects against small birds and conserves moisture, providing quicker and more even germination.
When you need to remove envirofleece
Crops should not stay covered for more than 6-8 weeks. Potatoes can be covered until the possibility of frost has past. If the crops depend on insects for pollination, the fleece should be removed during flowering.
