Two Wests own manufacture and design - as we design and manufacture this range of heavy duty fruit cages (vegetable cages) here in Chesterfield, Derbyshire, we can vary the sizing infinitely. If our standard range of sizes do not suit your exact requirements then please give us a call, we will be pleased to tailor to your exact dimensions - usually at No Extra Cost.
In snowy weather butterfly netting and bird netting should either be removed or replaced by larger span pigeon netting to allow snow to fall through - wet snow is very heavy ! Pigeon netting is available to purchase separately - Click Here

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.
