Plastic Sheeting for Plants and Gardens

Posted by Mary on 2/24/2014 to How To

Whether you are growing fruits, vegetables or flowers; plastic (poly) sheeting is a very versatile product to help with weed prevention, soil temperature and early germination.

You can use clear plastic sheeting to make a green house environment for your seedlings.  Not only will it help keep them warmer, but it will help keep wind and heavy rain from damaging the young plants.

Black plastic sheeting absorbs heat during the day and that heat keeps the soil warm in the evening.  If you want to have even more heat, double up the plastic.
