Re: TB: CULT: Shade for plants

Hello All, I don't know if this will work in your gardens, only because I am
unsure if the plant material is available in the U.S.A. but my mother-in-law
,who is in her 80's, always sticks in a large frond of bracken fern to shade
her seedlings when the weather is very hot over here. The bracken fronds
seem to work well as they still hold their shape when dried out and they
have never been known to take root, which is essential as they are a major
pest weed here. To get tall shade branches for her tomatoes , she cuts the
stems longer.Maybe this could work for some of you?, Hope it helps,
....Regards from Wendy...wendon@dcsi.net.au....who is not sure of her zone
and should find the time to look it up.Sorry.
