Gauzy, breezy curtains for a winter greenhouse, spotted on Pinterest (we tracked the photo to Flickr), reminded us of the beauty in humble gardening gear. Who knew agricultural fabric had such style?

Black knit agricultural fabric, designed to screen the sun, protects delicate seedlings and hothouse flowers from scorching. Looks lovely, too, doesn’t it?

 

Above: Available with varying degrees of opacity (and the ability to block as much as 90 percent of the sun’s rays), knitted SunBlocker Bulk Shade Cloth is available two colors–green and black–at prices ranging from $1.12 per square foot to $8.70 per square foot from FarmTek.
