The year he came to the Citrus Expo, he won the prize for the person that traveled the farthest to attend the Expo.

The article mentions "a special breathable tarp" that he uses for winter protection. Does anyone know what it is?

Vlad,

That must be ĎFrost Cloth Ď. It can be purchased in different sizes and weighs. A few home and garden stores around here usually carry it. You can buy small bags made of frost cloth that will fit over a small pot. Sometimes they have a draw string at the bottom. It can come in rolls 35í wide and maybe 100 feet long. Itís not cheap but with a little care can last several years.

Itís lets limited amounts of light and water and air pass through. With the old fashioned Christmas lights or incandescent light bulbs it retains a lot of heat. A plastic covered greenhouse gets much hotter during day light hours but would very hot during the day without adequate ventilation or a cooling system.

The frost cloth works much better than plastic for some situations.

I hope this helps.

Tom
