Features of Visqueen Clingseal

So how have the manufacturers made this product stronger?

Visqueen Agrisheet is manufactured using the finest raw materials and this, along with decades of technical expertise, makes Visqueen Agrisheet a far stronger sheet. When sheeting down the clamp, cheaper silage sheets are often damaged in the process. The high strength and impact features of Visqueen Agrisheet help prevent this happening due to the improved tear resistance. Even if it is punctured, the superior tear strength of Visqueen Agrisheet helps prevent splitting any further along the rip. Being a significantly stronger product makes Visqueen Agrisheet easier to use and longer lasting thereby saving money.

If you are interested in finding out more about Visqueen Clingseal then call in with us at Killyless Stores in Cullybackey outside Ballymena and we will give you all the information and help that you need.

If you are a keen gardener then there are lots of tasks which need to be taken on during the summer months. In the summer the good weather causes lawns and grass to grow quickly meaning that you need more regular maintenance of your garden. Summertime can also be a dry period in which plants and the lawn may need extra care. Here is some advice from the BBC Gardening website which can help you keep you garden looking lovely over the summer period.

 

Lawn care -Lawns are fairly drought resistant compared with other plants, but they can become yellowy-brown, limp and eventually bald if the following precautions are not taken:

  • cut the lawn less frequently than usual
  • raise the height of lawnmower blades
  • use a sprinkler on the lawn in the evening. Water lawns thoroughly to saturate the top 10cm to 15cm (4in to 6in) of soil. Check there is no hose pipe ban in the area. Avoid walking on the lawn if possible
  • scarify the lawn in autumn. A build-up of thatch in the summer could prevent water from penetrating the lawn
  • aerate soil with a fork to help water penetrate the roots of the grass
  • follow our step-by-step guide to autumn lawn care

Greenhouse problems – Greenhouses are useful for protecting tender plants and providing extra heat. However, the glass magnifies the sun’s rays, which makes plants vulnerable to being scorched by the sun. It also means that soil dries out much quicker than if the plants were outside.Flexible net shades can be used with varying degrees of success to protect plants from the direct glare of sunlight. Alternatively, glass shade paint can be applied to windows. Open windows, use ventilation or even leave the door open during the day. Remember to close them at night if a frost or cold night is forecast.

Watering – Using the right amount of water is the most important aspect of a plant’s survival in dry conditions. Bear in mind that it is not just hot weather that can cause soil to dry out, windy weather can also have a detrimental effect.

  • In dry conditions, water container plants at least once a day. Water in the evening to reduce evaporation.
  • However, if a plant looks like it is wilting and suffering from drought in the day, then water it immediately.
  • Try to avoid watering plant leaves in direct sunlight because they can become scorched, particularly when they have hairy foliage.
  • Install a water butt in the garden to conserve water.
  • If you have an automatic watering system with a timer, adjust it to take hot and dry weather into account.
  • Move container plants into the shade if you are going away on holiday and no one is watering your plants.
