I have available some window glass from large buildings. It is about one inch thick. ( I live where we get very large hail ) It is 15 % tinted. Not sure what that means. It is out of office buildings. Will the tinting be OK for plants. I will be growing veg.

Welcome to NGA, @Highcold .

I'm not sure how the tint will affect your plants, but I would say that unless the glass is "tempered" I would not use it for the roof of a greenhouse (especially in a hail-prone area). Other people may have a different opinion about that, though Smiling
