Q.

Shade cloth vs shade screen

Zone 85383 | Carol Tanner added on June 17, 2017 | Answered

I need to drape my recently transplanted cactus with a shade cloth ... not sure what to purchase as the material will be touching the cactus. I have multiple varieties including Saguaro, live in Phoenix AZ. Thank you,
