RE: RE: CULT: ?shade cloth?

Linda, the 47% represents the blockage capability of the cloth.  I've found,
through trial and error,that right around 50% works well.  30% is still too
hot for black pots and anything above 50% grows the plants out too leggy.
50% can be found at most garden centers...but if you have a particular area
and size....sundance is the place.  They will bind and grommet the cloth if
you like.  I've had very good results with them.

Thanks Betty and new guy Ross (and welcome to the group!).

The burlap seems to be working pretty well for now, but I will
definitely look into some better long term options.

How can you tell what level of shade you want to have?  Experience?

Betty sent me a note offlist saying hers blocks 20% of the sun.  Ross,
does the 47% mean it blocks 47% of sunlight or something else?
