These fruit and vegetable cages are made from aluminium and will protect your low crops from insect and bird damage. They are suitable for all your low crops, strawberries, salad crops, onions are just a few examples. The cages stand .5m high (1ft 7 inches) once erected and come with instructions, diagrams and a list of contents.


The 16mm uprights (legs) are pushed into the soil 10cm the tubes are .6m (1ft 11inches) long allowing for 10cm.


The connectors, either build a balls or joiners are used to connect the 13mm crossbars, these then connect to the legs.


The netting is laid over the cage and pegged down. It is not fitted as this would make it difficult on the larger cages to take off the netting with just one person.


Your crops should grow larger and be healthier with a bit of wind resistance provided by the netting which also stops  insect pests and birds.


The cages can be covered with garden fleece over winter but would need extra pegs due to wind resistance.


The cages can be dismantled and stored easily when not in use.


Everything is included in our cage kits:


Aluminium tubes, Connectors, Netting, Pegs and clips


Please note: snow is very heavy, if it is forecast remove the netting.


If ordering with no cover then you will just receive poles and joiners/buildaballs.
