Hi All

I was wondering if anyone has any experience growing veg through mypex? (the plastic breathable membrane that allows moisture through)

I am thinking of doing this to cut down the weeding in my allotment which is 12 x 7.5 metres. The veg I was thinking of sowing through it are sweetcorn, cabbage, broccolli, sprouts, kale, cauliflower, peas, beans, courgette, pumkins and butternut squash.

The soil in the allotment drains fairly well.

Any advice anyone please?

Thanks
Conor

I think the use of Mypex is worthwhile in controlling weeds in vegetables. Use as long narrow strips between rows or small circular holes cut at regular spaces to accommodate individual plants like cabbages or Sprouts.
