SAND BAGS
& ROW COVERS

THE GARDEN FARM SUPPLY COMPANY

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


SAND BAGS are now available to hold down all the row covers 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 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 - these are now only available in 2x20 metre pieces


UV Stabilized greenhouse plastic - for frost protection in the colder months
Floating Row Covers - for a small amount of frost protection and some greenhouse effect in the autumn and spring. These covers are also good to keep insects and birds off your crops.
Shade Cloth - for protection of seedlings and tender leafy crops in summer.
Bird Netting - useful whenever birds are a problem to crops (eg strawberries)
