Can I cover a fig tree with a spun floating row cover? Will there be enough sunlight coming through?
I've used it and it seems to hide the figs from the birds they haven't gone under it. Of course it won't stop chipmunks and such.
It also has the benefit of increasing the temperature a bit, which is good now in the north east. I think the benefits outweigh any small decrease in sunlight - it is designed to grow under.
