Hello all,
I have been looking for a shade cloth so that my CPs can survive the 100 degree Oregon summer. I've looked on Amazon, but the ones on there are either too big for my taste(I keep them in a 4 foot tall mini greenhouse), or the reviews are bad. Where do you guys buy your shade cloths? Any replies are highly appreciated đź‘Ť

Before you buy that go to the garden center and look around the large stepping stones. They wrap them in pretty much the same stuff and at least at my lowes it piles up beside the pallet and i just take it home. I use it to keep birds from messing up my tiny pitcher plants.
