Shade Netting Extends Salad Season into the Heat of Summer

  • Protects lettuce and other cool-weather crops in hot weather or warm climates
  • Also protects plants from birds
  • Choice of two lengths

Just one day of hot summer sun can affect the lush, sweet flavor of homegrown lettuce, making it bitter; a few days of hot sun will make lettuce bolt to seed, ruining it for the season. These UV-stabilized polyethylene shade nets cut summer sun by 50%, while allowing cool air to circulate freely. Use with hoops and clothespins, sold separately.

  • UV-stabilized polyethylene
  • 50% light transmission
  • Made in Canada

    Comments about Shade Nets:

    Using product to cover Swiss Chard and lettuce in Gulf Coast heat. Have raised beds with 1/2 in PVC pipe bent (the grey kind) to support shade cloth. Use the jumbo plastic clothes from Dollar Tree to attach cloth to pipes. Works great! There seems to be enough air circulation to keep plants healthy.

        By using this product, we have extended our growing season...arugula still going strong through July in Louisville, KY. We can cut to size, use clothespins to affix it to low or tall hoops, even draped it over our sugar snap peas....made a big difference!

        I have it draped over PVC hoops our "salad garden" and our greens are doing great here even with the intense sun and heat. It is near the end of June we are eating a variety of greens from this garden on a daily basis.

        I only wish is came in wider widths - at least 8 foot wide.

          Great for covering lettuce, carrot seedlings and other tender plants. My beet seedlings are finally coming up after covering with this. The hot weather was too much for them.

                  Our intense sun in the NM high desert was too much for our newly planted Japanese maple. We used PVC pipe for poles and used this shade cloth and the tree is doing much better.
