Talkback: Horticultural fleece

if growing might used straw or old newspapers net currants work quite well as well with star tho have net it down on an exposed site


  • A question about fleece that nobody has answered yet is when you use it to protect against pea moth how do the pollinating insects get to the pea flowers?
  • What about desert plants that don't mind cold but hate wet? I don't think fleece is the answer.
  • I like to use fleece in a bag shape, a quick tack up with some thread around 3 sides, but leaving a tiny hole ont the bottom side, and I plant my baskets up early in the greenhouse then when its at that time you are swithering or not if its safe to put them out or not, I slip the hanging basket chain hook through the hole and hang it up outside in situ, then I can pull it over the basket quickly at night, then its just as easy in the am.You can buy something similar but they are expensive.
  • I think if you mix a lot of gravel and sharp sand in the soil/pot this helps, especially for things like the more frost-resistant agaves, succulents.
  • What did people use before fleece was invented?
