This product will be supplied flat pack for self assembly. Full instructions will be included.
The frame can be covered with either 10mm anti butterfly net or 19mm anti bird netting, simply select the net you prefer as you order.
The net is held with netting clips to the framework and firmly to the ground with barbed pegs.
Available with a plain aluminium frame ‘standard’ or with a green powder coating ‘deluxe’ to make a very unobtrusive cage.
In snowy weather butterfly and bird netting should either be removed or replaced by the larger meshed pigeon netting, to allow snow to fall through - wet snow is very heavy!

Anyone who grows fruit and veg at home knows that certain crops simply can’t be raised successfully without some form of crop protection. Of course many things are suggested for keeping birds and other pests at bay, such as old CD’s and polythene bags hung among the plants. However, although these things may work initially, birds soon learn to ignore them and of course they have no effect at all on insect pests. As far as birds are concerned, nothing works as well as covering the crop completely with a good quality fruit cage. A fruit cage or on a smaller area, a netting clad cloche, is ideal for protecting your cabbages and lettuces from marauding pigeons, and means that you have complete peace of mind, no matter how many hungry birds circle your garden.
