Gardener's film?

sheryl77August 22, 2011

I want to start covering a garden bed to extend my growing season. What kind of plastic or film do I need to put over the structure? Just knowing the term would help.

Investigate "cold frame" and see if that's what you're after.

Here are some terms that are used:
agricultural plastic
poly film
greenhouse plastic
Polyethylene greenhouse film

Look at how long it's supposed to last, UV protection, thickness, and anti-condensation treatments.
