Fleece

Hurrah! I've just found a firm that makes GREEN fleece. Don't know if I'm the only one who cannot imagine why it is always white and therefore looks dreadful dotted around the border. I've only found this one firm - Coopers - anyone know of anyone else who makes it? And is there a good scientific reason why white is better than green? Just wondering about light getting through.

    Is that Coopers of Stortford? I cant find green fleece though. Can you put the web site on please.

    You're right, Lin - it is Coopers of Stortford - but I can't find it on their web site either. It was in a catalogue that I've just received from them. Have sent them a query - will keep you posted.

    If its them I am afraid the green stuff is netting, the fleece is the jolly ole white

    I have just bought the geese and herons to go round my new pond. They have some good stuff at reasonable prices, i use them quite often.

    Nope. Definitely fleece in the catalogue. Described as "frost wrap".

    I have found it, I cant see anywhere else selling this though, when they say green fleece they mean 'green'as in friendly.

    There is one that looks very pale green, i have written to them to check.

    Meanwhile,  I have just found the new Coopers one, it wasnt in the catalogue I used.

    That was the only one I could find, but the Coopers one is a nice leef green instead of that aqua colour, I would rather have white than that.
