Row Covers
& Garden Clips

THE GARDEN FARM SUPPLY COMPANY

OUR PROMISE IS "IF WE SELL IT, WE USE IT ON THE FARM OURSELVES"


Garden Clips are now available to hold down row covers which we place over polypipe hoops in order to construct small cloches.
Depending on which row cover is being used it is possible to construct small shade houses, pest barriers or warming green houses both cheaply and quickly.

Pipe Frame

We recommend black, agriculture grade, 3/4" polypipe (not the low density polypipe commonly available from garden and irrigation supply places).
Cut the pipe to a length that suits the cover you are using.
Reinforcement
We find that it is best to cut lengths of rebar (deformed bar), hammer them part way into the ground and then slip the hoops over the top of the bar. This keeps the sides of the hoop houses vertical, allowing maximum growing space, it also stabilizes the hoop houses.


COVERS can be made from a number of different materials


Floating Row Covers - for a small amount of frost protection and some greenhouse effect in the autumn and spring. We are now stocking a new horticultural floating row cover also know as a fleece or frost cloth. Frost cloth is made from spun bonded polyester. It is opaque but has good light transmitting qualities and is water permeable. It is a superior product to the old GEO20 that we used to sell. Frost Cloth will also keep rabbits, insects and birds off your crops and comes in a few different sizes.

2metre x 100metre rolls are available for commercial growers but they are only 30gsm and we have to send them by courier

Vege Net - *NEW we trialled this product last summer and love it. It is like a very tightly woven extremely light shade cloth and as well as protecting the plants from everything from fruit flies to rabbits it also provides wind and heat protection.

Shade Cloth - for protection of seedlings and tender leafy crops in summer.WE DO NOT STOCK THIS It is available from hardware stores and in larger roles from Shade Australia

UV Stabilized greenhouse plastic - for frost protection in the colder months WE DO NOT STOCK THIS A good place to get it from is Silverwood Nursery Supplies

The large Vege Net will cover a family vegetable patch and give you protection against most of the bugs, birds and wildlife that drive you crazy.
