I'm building PVC boxes (not hoops) to go over my 2 4x4 boxes. Is $49.99 for 50 yards of 108" a good price (w/shipping would be about $56)? Do you think this is way more than I'll ever need or just go for it since I will have extra?

Also, my mom had an idea to hot glue the tulle to the frame. Has anyone tried this? I'm thinking binder clips would be better so I can easily move the tulle if I need to.

What is the tulle for?
If its to be used like a row cover to protect from insect damage, I suggest a light-weight Agribon or Remay. Cost for 50 feet by 108" is 23.95 at johnnyseeds.com and other suppliers and it doesn't get stuck on branches or sticks and what-nots and should be plenty for your SFG. It can be used year after year.

If you want a shadecloth, cheesecloth is much cheaper than tulle.

I would use clips to hold it. Easier to remove when checking for weeds, damage, maturity, etc.

Tulle usually goes on sale around March in prep for Prom and wedding season. Sometimes it is 50% off at Joann Fabrics.

I am making boxes that can be lifted off easily. I was using tulle to keep the bugs out and provide a protective barrier to keep other animals out. Do the row covers just go directly on to the plants or do they go over something to hold them up?

I bought some reemay cloth and so far I love it. My seedlings were attracting some tiny flies and I was also worried about heavy rains. The cloth is working beautifully!

I'm using 5 gallon containers. Does anyone have an idea for a cage or support system for the cloth once the plants get taller?

gardensqd....>You can lay the row cover directly on the plants if you like. Its very light weight and won't hurt them. Or you can clip them to supports around the plants or across hoops. I use them both ways. I have wire clothes hangers spaced along my strawberry patch and lay the row cover over that.

Those tomato cages camprn posted are a good way to surround a plant when needed.

Thanks for the info! So would I be able to drape this over my trellises as well?

garden....Yes, you can drape it over anything you like if you have enuf of it. Be sure to clip the edges closed so the insects can't enter until its time for pollination (by insect). You can always pollinate by hand.
They also provide a few extra degrees of warmth in the spring which is always nice.

bounce 60% off!! May I recommend buy 108" width. It's okay to have the cover too big but it's a pain to try to sew 2 pieces together if a width is to small.

+1  

On at least one occasion they did not have 108" width in the store so I ordered it online for the same sale price.

AM does this require a coupon and/or can it be purchased online for that discount.

I don't ever remember having the choice of Shiny or Matte.  Which is better or lasts longer???????

Yolos, apparently no coupon needed. Don't know about online or which would be better.... I'd personally go with matte....

I'm looking at Jo Ann's online flyer (https://www.joann.com/weekly-ad). It says they will have a sale for tulle, 3 yds for $4 dollars (does not apply to 108"). 30% off Christmas tulle, whatever that is (it's hard to tulle).

Wow -- they even sell 3D printers.

I recommend looking for Joann's coupon for 30-50% off a single item. Using 108" tulle is so worth it.
