I've used one for 4 years and it is still going. They are great for light frost protection and protecting from potato and cucumber beetles. I'm ordering 3 more to get an early start on the season.

I used this product last growing season and am very happy with the protection provided. In my area there is a heavy flea bettle poulation that had previously destroyed all of my attempts to grow eggplants. I used the row cover to protect the plants until flowers formed. The flea bettles still attacked after removal of the cover but the plants were established well enough to still produce great. I do however recommend some form of support for the cover I experienced some seedling crushing when used alone. I used tomato cages with clothes pins for my eggplants.

With our North Dakota early frost ocurring late summer/early fall, this has saved our tomatoes for two different seasons. It needed to be replaced so am ordering another cover.
Excellent season extender!

I bought floating row cover as soon as I decided to plant veggies and berries this season. We're in a zone 6 with less than 3 months Frost-Free. It's the third week of May, and I've already planted strawberries, tomatoes, lettuces, carrots, onions, and even sweet corn. The floating row cover material kept everything snuggly and safe, even when our night-time temps dipped into the high 20s a couple of times last week. Also works great for keeping harmful insects and birds out of the edibles. And although we haven't had one yet this year, we're prone to sudden hailstorms here. I'm hopeful that my floating row cover material may even help protect my plants from any major damage from hail. An excellent product!
