earliest time to cover plants w/ tulle??

Post  waingirl on 6/6/2012, 1:19 pm

Hi all,

All of my seeds that I have planted on May 30th have just now come up. Lettuce, cabbage, radishes, escarole etc. I found at Bed Bath and Beyond "Food Tents". They come in a set of 2 for $6.99, and spring open like an umbrella! When should I start to cover my plants for fear of cabbage moths, birds etc?? I don't want to loose anything if I can help it!!

Thanks, Lorie

i cover my gardens the very minute they are planted and i keep the tulle on as long as possible. if things need pollinating, i do it by hand.

edited to add: if you have dollar tree stores near you, check for the food tents there. they have both the folding and the rigid ones at my local stores.
