NETTING COVERING FOR YOUR ECO-TUNNELS

Using shade net fabrics will enable you as a grower, to modify or create an ideal protected micro climate, in which to produce high quality seedlings, fruit, vegetables, pot plants and cut flowers.

Shade net will provide protection against calamities, providing an environment for optimum growth and yield. It ensures good air circulation, with excellent moisture exchange resulting in large savings in water and chemical sprays.

The Shade Net lock-stich pattern, only obtainable through a knitted construction, means the fabric will not fray or unravel when cut. The mesh size governing the shade percentage is fixed or locked in place, making it impossible for it to be altered or manipulated. Due to its knitted lock-stitch pattern, this product allows easy joining and repairing should it be accidently torn.

The external factors that influence the rate of photosynthesis are, to a degree, under the control of the plant grower. Modifying these factors can influence crop yields.

The use of shade netting assists immensely in optimizing the photosynthetic response of plants and crops which is the fundamental process in determining any plant or crop’s yield, as well as offering the opportunity to manipulate some of the photo morphological responses associated with the quality of the produce.

HEIRLOOM SEEDS -ALL YOU NEED TO KNOW!

Most heirlooms have been saved and selected because they have the best flavor and production in home and small market gardens. We get the benefit of this long development cycle, as only the best producing, most flavorful, most memorable and most dependable varieties have made the selection throughout the years. Delicate, weak or fickle varieties are no longer with us.

Heirloom seeds, heirloom vegetables and heirloom gardening are becoming increasingly popular today. Many people are turning or returning to home gardening for a variety of reasons, and heirloom seeds figure prominently. Some of these include an interest in fresh, local and healthy foods; others need to stretch the family food budget; some need additional exercise, preferably outdoors; and still others are searching for the lost flavors of the family garden when they were growing up.

All of this interest has created some confusion as to what an heirloom seed truly is. Some think that the term “heirloom” is the same as “organic”. Other folks think that anything that is not organic or heirloom means that it is GMO. To make matters worse, some larger seed companies sell both heirloom and hybrid seeds that are certified organic, further confusing the matter.

Let’s take a look at a few definitions so we can better understand what an heirloom seed is compared to a hybrid or genetically modified seed.

An heirloom is anything of value (though not necessarily economic) to a person, family or group passed down from one generation to other. Examples are furniture, China, silver or seeds. An heirloom is generally considered something worth passing down.

An heirloom seed, therefore, is seed from a plant that has been passed from one generation to another, carefully grown and saved because it is considered valuable. The value could lie in its flavor, productivity, hardiness or adaptability. Many heirlooms have been grown, saved and passed down for more than 100 years. Some have history reaching back 300 years or more. To have been saved and preserved for so long, these seed varieties have shown their value to many people and families for an extremely long time.

WHY GROW YOUR OWN?

Advantages

Growing your own food is very fun and exciting, and perhaps one of the most gratifying tasks one can take on. I am going to share with you the five main reasons why this simple, yet uncommon act is so special.

First of all, there is a popular misconception that needs to be brought to the surface — the idea that to grow food you must wear overalls, drive a tractor, and drink moonshine.

This is our cultural image of a ‘farmer’, and however false it may be, it brings up the point that everyone has the ability to grow SOME of their own food, whether you’re a student, full time worker, or stay-at-home mom. It is NOT all-or-nothing; you can make it as simple or as complex as you’d like, all the way from growing a single tomato plant on your patio to installing a backyard apple orchard.
