Crop Cover (also referred to as floating row cover, frost blanket or over-wintering) acts as a protective greenhouse by trapping heat and guarding against light frosts. Made from spun bond polypropylene, it allows water, air, sunlight and soluble fertilizers to pass through. Because of its permeability, it vents air and excess moisture leading to increased plant growth. It also protects against insects and drying winds.
Extended Growing Season
Crop Cover can extend the growing season by 2-3 months in colder climates. In mild to moderate climates it can allow for year long growing. When installed correctly it can also protects against bugs and pests.
Simply drape over plants. Edges should be lightly covered with soil or weighted down to protect against garden pests and to prevent wind mishaps. Can also be used for winter wrapping shrubs and small trees.
Note: Remove cover for pollination on flowering plants.
