Additional Information

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.

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

I used this to cover my cucumber trellis while the cucumber plants are very small. I grew salad greens under the trellis. They popped right up and are growing great in the hot summer sun.

I am ordering this for the South-central Texas heat 90+.

By the tomato Lady

Comments about : 6' x 6' Shade Net:

At 76, I large scale garden to provide fresh produce for the Chilton, TX Food Pantry. This will increase production for these deserving and needy people. For the lady who wished it came in wider sizes, I am just going to sew them together to achieve that. A few PVC hoops will fit into Galvanized brackets on sides of the raised beds. I can't wait to get them! Thanks for the encouraging comments!

    Comments about : 6' x 6' Shade Net:

    This shade cloth appears to be quite durable and is doing the job. I needed shade for my vegetables to try and extend growing season into summer. With the hotter than normal spring the
    shade cloth is exceeding expectations

          Great item for Hydrangeas

          By nancru

          from Southlake TX

          About Me Avid Gardener

          Verified Buyer

          Comments about : 6' x 6' Shade Net:

          I had to cover some hydrangeas because the Texas sun was burning them. Some summers they do better than others and I don't want to move them. I draped this loosely over some stakes during the hottest part of the month and they are thriving now that the weather is cooler.
