Guide: Shade Netting for Plants

The below information should be used as an approximate guide to choosing the product that you require.

Note: The majority of plants require a temperature of 22-28 degrees for optimal photosynthesis.  This is the temperature you would ideally want for your growing environment.  Take a temperature reading from the tips of your plants since this is where the crops are the hottest.

FAQs

What does the shadow percentage mean?
The density of the mesh is based on the % of the light it will block. For example, 60% netting will allow 40% of the light through.

How do I install it to a planthouse or poly-tunnel?
Simply drape the product over the roof of the area that you want to cool down.  To keep it in place you can use cable ties or string to attach the material to a post permanent fixture like a post.  There are eyelets around the edges of the cloth to thread attachments through. You can also tack or staple the material.

Can the product be joined together? 
Yes. It is easy to thread cable ties through two sheets then simply tighten the cable tie to join together.

Can water get through the horticultural shade netting?
Yes.  The material is permeable allowing sprinklers rainwater through to keep your crops hydrated.

Can the cloth double up as insect mesh too?
Yes. Although it is not the primary purpose of the product, the holes are small enough to prevent insects from getting to your plants.  However, if you have a significant insect problem we would recommend purpose construction insect mesh.

Can you lay this shade netting for plants directly onto crops?
Yes.  The material is light and can be put directly on top of more robust crops.  However, we would recommend using a poly-tunnel or support to lay the mesh on top of your plants.  By laying it directly on top you risk it being dislodged by wind and squashing smaller plants.

How do I put it up inside a greenhouse?
The product works best outside. Simply lay the mesh on top of your nursery roof. You can secure it using cable ties, tacks or nails.

How do I fix a hole in the product?
For a quick and simple solution, you can use cable ties.  For a more robust fix, you can sew the hole together.
