The Planta Greenhouse 50% Shade Cloth is the perfect accessory to keep your greenhouse garden cool and shaded throughout the sunny summer months. Designed to be flexible and lightweight, you can easily install the cloth by attaching it to your greenhouse roof or hanging it directly over your garden beds.

This quality shade cloth is made from high-density water-permeable polyethylene that resists UV rays as well as garden chemicals, sprays, and even detergent. In addition, the woven open lockstitch design lowers wind speed and heat accumulation in the greenhouse, reducing soil moisture loss and keeping your plants healthy and happy.

Tough materials and creative engineering mean this shade cloth will resist wear and tear while maintaining constant shade levels throughout its lifespan. The strength and durability of this product make it a smart, long-term choice for passionate greenhouse gardeners.

    Shades save plants

    These were a tremendous help in keeping the plants from baking in the heat since the greenhouse is entirely in direct sunlight all day.

    A necessity

    I only bought one while ordering the greenhouse and needed it right away to lower the temperature in the greenhouse. This shade cloth was sold out when I tried to order more so I had to purchase additional ones from another company otherwise all of my plants would have died in the extreme heat inside the greenhouse. This one is sized for the greenhouse so I would have liked to have had more than one. I placed it inside and affixed it with magnets.

    Shade Cloth

    It was 111F here this summer so my greenhouse was hot!!!!! Would like a denser one for our unexpected temperatures. Othwise, I do like it, and under more normal conditions, it works great.
