Fruition’s Floating Row Cover
Floating row cover is easy to use and invaluably versatile. Paired with easy-to-use spring steel hoops (sold separately), use row cover to:
~ extend your season in spring and fall, moderating temperatures & increasing the growth of anything underneath, so you’ll easily enjoy weeks of additional fresh herbs and greens in both spring and fall as a result.
~ brilliantly excludes insects, so we cover all our cucurbits (cucumbers, zucchini, winter squash, melons) with floating row cover to protect from Cucumber Beetles until they flower. Without the beetles eating the plants and diseases being vectored by the wounds, all these crops are much more healthy and thus productive.
~ help carrots and parsnips germinate more quickly and consistently! Simply place floating row cover over freshly sown beds of carrots, beets & parsnips, watering the fabric when it gets dry, allowing the cover to provide the ideal warm, humid environment to germinate the carrots (so they outcompete the weeds!) with impressive quickness.
~ increase the heat units beneath it in any season, so in cool summers we cover peppers, sweet potatoes (and other self-pollinating crops) to significantly increase our harvest.
Our floating row cover is 83” wide, maximizing its versatility and efficiency in your garden. We’ve cut them into 20’ and 50’ lengths for your convenience. Also, choose between Heavy or Regular weight fabric. The Heavy weight is perfect for overwintering crops in your garden while the regular weight is great for germinating seeds in early spring and excluding pests! Securing the edges with sandbags rather than soil or stones helps extend the life of your row cover.
