Floating Row Cover is graded by "basis weight": measured in ounces of material per square yard (osy) or grams per square meter (gsm). After MANY years of experimentation we have found the n-sulate, 1.5oz. spun-bonded poly row cover to be far more durable and versatile than any others. The n-sulate gives us 6-8°F of protection and allows 50% light. We double the layers for extreme cold.
I have used it over my garden for weeks at a time with water, light and air going through all day yet warmth staying in at night.
Row cover is essential for cold-climate and mountain gardening. We offer it in 10x12' packages or by the yard (10'wide) from the Villager's bulk rolls. Always have a supply of frost protection fabric (1.5oz. N-sulate floating row-cover) on hand.
Remember, "there is no such thing as cold", there is only heat and we are trying to preserve it. There is also NO "average last date of frost"
