Bunnings sell this clear tarp which is fairly durable. I recently used it to cover my gazebo and it does let fair amount of light in and keeps the rain out.

Description states it is suitable for green houses

Excellent! This was the suggestion I hoped for. Going to give this a try. Cheers.

Plastic has several issues:

 

1 - Breaks down unless heavily UV stabilised.

 

2 - Doesn;t let through the same light. we got our glass house replaced by a commercial plastic glass house. It is some type of poly carbonate or something. The light coming through has changed and plants dont grow as well.

 

3 - fumes - affects some insects adversely which affects pollination.

 

 

 

If I had the money I'ld go back to glass.
