Id have just purchased a 50 mtr roll of daffoldebris netting from scaffold direct,one question of two as follows, If I place some of this net over my early potatoes would that be a good cover for a late May frost ?,also is there any evidence of this type of netting forcing savoys etc to boult and go to seed



I have never heard of daffoldebris netting, Guest, but no netting would be a protection against frost. You need to get out with the hoe and earth them up, as we did today.

You should not need to protect your potatoes if you are ridging them up regularly Guest. No netting that I am aware of is going to cause your brassicas to bolt. Wish you had joined GoY would love to know what daffoldrebris netting actually is a google search cam e up with nothing!

Strongforge Debris Netting is a Heavy Duty (80gsm) tough resilient Netting for Scaffolding & Construction applications? If it is I cannot see the use in a garden when growing plants as it would stop light and its weight break plants?
