Crop Cover

Instructions for Use:

  1. Prepare the soil for planting and place drip or irrigation hose.
  2. Secure the beginning of the mulch with Fabric Staples, rocks or soil.
  3. Unroll in 5′ increments, maintaining a taut smooth surface. Cover the edges as done in Step 2.
  4. Cut a 3″ hole or “X” where the plant placement is desired (preferably down the center) spacing enough to allow reflected light to reach all around the maturing plant.
  5. Rinse the mulch’s surface periodically to maintain its reflectiveness. Avoid spraying chemicals, such as fertilizer, onto the film. This could cause the color to fade.
  6. Water plants as needed. The mulch helps retain soil moisture, so be careful not to over-water.

Ground Produce

Veggie Booster Mulch was designed to be used primarily with ground produce, as it is a more simplistic application. Follow the instructions listed above for the best recommended use.

Potted Plants

Just because it was not designed specifically for potted plants, does not mean that Veggie Booster Mulch can’t be used that way. In fact, it will offer all the same benefits. A couple of tips though: plant one to two plants per pot, hang the mulch over the edges about 6″ and use with produce such as tomatoes that will benefit from the mulch. Anything that grows short and dense will be difficult to reflect light from the film properly.

Trellis Systems

Now a trellis system is a combination of the two above. Veggie  Booster Mulch can be cut and laid over the trellis. It is recommended to secure the edges as mentioned in the instructions above. As the plant starts to grow, simply trellis it OVER the film.
