Looks like plastic, made from plants. 100% biodegradable heavy-duty frost fleece.
Protect your plants down to -6°C.
Use BioFleece to create a pocket of air around plants to protect them from frosts.
Easy to cut with scissors, BioFleece® can be adjusted to any size and shape required.
When is it best to use?
Can be used year round, although frost protection is mostly needed October to April.
Ground frosts can damage or even kill plants. Increasingly unpredictable spring weather can result in plants starting to grow earlier with milder winters, and then suffering if a sudden change in weather or late frost appears leaving soft growth prone to cold damage.
BioFleece® works the same as commonly used plastic fleece protecting the plants underneath from the cold. The difference is that BioFleece® is made from plants, not petroleum. The heavy duty fleece material of 30 grams per square meter (30 gsm) will protect plants in temperatures down to -6°C.
How to use:
Ideal for use on tender flowers and shrubs as well as early season vegetables. Either lay the fleece directly over the plants to be protected or on top of a supporting structure. Secure the edges to the ground, for example with pegs or stones. Water and feed plants by removing the netting. BioFleece® can be used to protect any plant. If using on fruits and vegetables which require pollination by bees whilst BioFleece® is being used, remove the fleece during the day whilst in flower to allow bees to visit.
