Answer: Row cover (variously called garden fabric or garden quilt or frost blanket, etc.) usually refers to a special spun bonded light weight fabric that air and water and light pass through. It is generally sold in lengths and can be placed directly over a row of plants or a section of the garden and is held in place with weights or with earth staples. In some cases the row cover offers a few degrees of frost protection (a frost blanket) and in other cases it is a special lighter summer weight used for pest exclusion or controlled pollination. They are available at garden centers and from catalog suppliers such as Gardener's Supply http://www.gardeners.com/customer_service/contactus.asp
