Product Description

Floating row covers are available in two weights so you can choose the cold and frost protection best suited for your growing conditions. These covers are great for extending late harvests of fall crops like lettuce, spinach and chard by at least several weeks. In milder areas, the heavy weight covers could allow you to pick greens all winter. The covers delay freezing of the soil, so you can leave carrots, turnips and other root crops in place and dig them as needed, well into icy weather. The covers do allow some sunlight to pass through as well as some air and water. Be sure to remove once the danger of frost is past, though, since they can slow plant growth if left on too long. Remove covers on warm days, too, to avoid heat buildup. For continued protection on warmer days (from insects, for example), rely on the Super-Lite Insect Barrier which can be used all summer without harming heat-sensitive plants. With care, covers can be used more than one season.

Standard Weight Row Covers are 1 ¼ oz./sq. yd and allow 70-80% of sunlight to pass through. They offer frost protection down to 28° F.

Heavy Weight Row Covers are 2 oz./sq. yd. and allow 40-50% of sunlight to penetrate. They offer frost protection down to 24° F. For extra protection, use two layers.
