I posted something similar to this a little over a month ago, but I'm still curious - does anyone have experience with using shadecloth and burlap and the differences between the two? Right now I'm using burlap. It's not tight-woven at all, it's the kind that's loosely-woven with medium sized holes. I'm not sure if I should switch to shadecloth or not...I want whatever lets the most light in without dumping my plants into full sun. I would assume (just looking at pictures) that the loosely-woven burlap I'm already using would allow more light in than shadecloth...I know there are different percentages of shadecloth but they all look pretty solid compared to burlap.
