Canada Post delivered my floating row cover this morning, rather quickly too. I placed the order Friday night and it arrived Tueday morning, it traveled 1,800km(1,118miles). Although I have never used floating row cover it is suppose to be a great product. It can be used to fend off insects, keep the heat off crops as well as extend your growing season by retaining heat and protecting from frost. I purchased this product from Veseys which is a garden supply company from Prince Edward Island, Canada. It was the most reasonable and one of the few places I could even find this stuff.
I first saw the use of this product on Tiny Farm Blog which is a CSA farm located north of Toronto, Ontario. They offer a very informative and interesting blog to follow. I copied the image below from their page and it shows that the eggplants bit the bust from not being covered, well the neighbouring peppers are growing fine due to the floating row cover.
