Plant Shade Netting Guide

The below information should be used as an approximate guide to choosing the netting 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.

FAQ

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

How do I install to a greenhouse or poly-tunnel?
Simply drape the netting 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 netting 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 material?
Yes.  The material is permeable allowing sprinklers rainwater through to keep your crops hydrated.

Can shade cloth double up as insect netting too?
Yes. Although it is not the primary purpose of the netting 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 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 your netting on top of your plants.  By laying the netting directly on top you risk the netting being dislodged by wind and squashing smaller plants.

How do I put up shade netting inside a greenhouse?
Shade netting works best outside the greenhouse. Simply lay the netting on top of your greenhouse roof. You can secure the netting using cable ties, tacks or nails.

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