    RVG: Thats a good price work out at $2.50 / meter will have to go visit them.

    CCBear sorry didnt answer all your question.
    I have tried the second hand market but the time and effort required to get what I want is greater than the cost of new cloth.
    Want around the 20-30 metres 3 meters wide
    Thanks

    CC Bear: I have been using 70% that I already had and that work fine so I thought 50% would be ok. Dropping to 30% I thought might be to much but if you say it works in Queensland then I will Give it a go.

    Col: I do all my working out in sq meters rather than Lin meters as iI find it easier. That price you have would be Lin.
    Thanks for the replies.

  • Hi
    I finished my first 2 beds a couple of months ago.
    It has taken me about 2 years to work out what I wanted to do.

    We use to have an opal mine out west.
    We tried all different things to stop the mossies including covering the holes with mesh or cloth.
    The only thing that worked for us was olive oil about a cup in the tank we had which was around the 5000 lt size
    Only thing was we had to remember to redo the oil after a big wet that over filled the tank

    Yes thanks
    The first lot of seeds have been in for a month now and nothing happening so I decided to dig all the seeds up that I planted so see what’s happening.
