Additional Information

Exclusive | Shade Cover Fits over Plant Protection Tents, Protects Plants from Too Much Sunlight

  • Shield plants from intense summer sun and heat
  • Ideal for protecting seedlings from intense sun when acclimating them to outdoor conditions
  • Sized to fit over Plant Protection Tent structures, sold separately

Slip these shade covers over Plant Protection Tents to provide shade from hot summer sun. They filter 50% to 70% of sunlight and help prevent sunburn and overheating. They also help keep greens like lettuce and spinach from "bolting" (going to seed) to prolong the harvest. VELCRO® brand tabs hold them securely; nylon ties let you roll the shade cover up and out of the way when it's not needed.

Intended for use with Plant Protection Tent, sold separately. Choice of two sizes.

    Comments about : Plant Protection Shade Cover, 3' x 3':

    Ok, I read the reviews, and they were not good. But I have this to say. I like this shade cloth. I made my own frame from a smaller size rebar for my Japanese maple tree. Several years ago it took heavy hail damage, last year we had a terrible drought along with a dry, hot summer. (yes, I live in the south)so this tree was struggling. The frame I made serves to support this shade cloth and a heavier material should we get severe thunderstorms. It's shaped like half of an umbrella with the main support behind the tree. So, for the garden I used the super hoops. I Placed them inside my 4x4 raised beds, at opposite corners using 2 sets. Plastic zip ties hold them together at the top. They have been in the garden, in 4 4x4 raised beds since last year. I don't remove them at the end of the season. The shade cover works very well. It protects my cucumbers and carrots from the blazing summer sun.
    Unfortunately I'm not tech savvy so I cant provide pictures. But I'm very happy with the shade covers.

    Incomplete Product not worth getting

    Comments about : Plant Protection Shade Cover, 3' x 3':

    This was disappointing in that they were going to be gifts for my gardener daughters but it was not stated that the frame was needed and to be order separately. When I did order it was no longer available yet the tents still showed available. The customer service agent even tried to convince me to keep the tent and search the internet to find tbe frame structures somewhere else. How low class is that!

        This is the worst product I have ever purchased from Gardeners Supply. It does not come with the needed parts to use the product and it appears that the parts are not even available to purchase. Very disappointed in Gardeners Supply

          I have both sizes and with the afternoon Arizona sun I needed protection for my tomato plants and this works perfect. I have my own frames so the covers are perfect.

              This is great product in theory. But as it does not come with the supports that are needed to set it up it is useless. I ordered the super hoops recommended on the side of the page and it is not at all what is needed to set these up. These need to be sold with the support structure needed, or at least provide a link to the appropriate accessories. So very disappointed in Gardeners Supply on this one. Will be returning pronto.

                  I'm sure it would work well if I would find all the pieces.

                  That's what I get for not reading ALL the small print. These don't come with anything to hold them up. This renders them rather useless. Sorry I bought them.
