WHITE GREENHOUSE SHADE CLOTH

Our greenhouse shade cloth is UV stabilized, rot and mildew resistant, and has an 8-year warranty with a 16-year life expectancy. Shade cloth is an important component of your greenhouse to keep your plants safe during the intense summer heat.

WHY DO I NEED SHADE CLOTH?

Shade cloths protect the plants with light diffusion and UV protection. They also help to keep your greenhouse cool, improve plant ventilation, reduce water usage, and help to prevent sunburn on plants.

What Size of Shade Cloth Should I buy?

You will want the cloth to cover from hip to hip on your hoop house or cover loosely over the desired area that needs protection. Install clips to secure the shade cloth every 24-36". Shade cloth can also be installed using lock channel and spring wire. Check out this video tutorial on how to add shade cloth to a high tunnel greenhouse.

BENEFITS OF USING SHADE CLOTH

HEAT REDUCTION

Through the reduction of greenhouse heat, shade cloth can help create microclimates during the hot summer months, reducing ambient heat by more than 10 degrees.

SEASON EXTENSION

Normally, some crops such as lettuce don’t fare well during the summer heat, but shade cloth can help reduce temperatures and extend the growing season well into the summer months.

LIGHT DIFFUSION

The damages caused by too much direct sunlight on plants can be mitigated through the use of shade cloth.

REDUCED WATER CONSUMPTION/ENERGY USE

A reduction in temperatures results in a need to irrigate less frequently. In addition, with the use of shade cloth, less energy is spent cooling greenhouses in other ways.

PESTICIDE REDUCTION

When some plants get too hot, they can become stressed and unhealthy, allowing insects to do damage. The use of shade cloth allows plants that may have been susceptible to heat stress to grow healthy and strong, enabling the plant to ward off much of the insect pressure and subsequent pesticide use.

INCREASED PRODUCT QUALITY & BETTER YIELDS

When pants are strong, healthy, and are grown in optimal conditions, they produce better yields. Increases in blossom and fruit set are apparent when temperatures are moderated, making shade cloth an indispensable part of any grower’s tool kit.

PLANTS THAT BENEFIT FROM SHADE CLOTH

50% shade cloth is can be used to aid with growing a variety of flowers during the summer (orchids, camellias, azaleas, and African violets) and is also a perfect aid for peppers, lettuce, nursery stock, and potted plants. Shade-loving plants can thrive during the summer months under this shade cloth. Some lettuces, spinach, and other greens can be extended well into the summer using 50% shade cloth.

Fertilization

Fertilization

It is generally recommended to wait to fertilize a bare root plant until it has been established in the ground and is actively growing. This can vary depending on the type of plant and the growing conditions, but it is generally best to wait at least a few weeks to a few months after planting.

During the first year, you should focus on providing the plant with the right amount of water, sunlight and soil to help it become established. Once the plant has become established and is actively growing, you can begin to fertilize it.

You can use a balanced, all-purpose fertilizer or one that is specifically formulated for the type of plant you have. Be sure to follow the instructions on the fertilizer package and apply it at the recommended rate.

It is also important to note that over-fertilizing can be harmful to plants, so it's always best to error on the side of caution and start with a lower amount of fertilizer and increase as needed.
