Very strong winds

Posted by splumb none (My Page) on

There are sometimes very strong winds at our house. Just recently I have had two plants snap off due to the winds. Now I am worried about the rest of the plants. Is there is any wind barriers that won't reduce the sun that I put up. Anyone have any other suggestions.

Also the plants that snapped off were a snap pea and brussel sprouts. Will the come back up. Looks. Like the roots are still there.

RE: Very strong winds

You can always support them w/ stakes like tomatoes. A friend of mine creates sort of a tent w/ 2 window screens to shade the peas and also to create a wind breaker. Seems like it works well for her.
