All the cages come with instructions, diagrams and a list of contents.
The 16mm uprights (legs) are pushed into the soil for stability.
The legs are 600mm in length and need to be pushed into the ground rougly 100mm which will give you a 500mm erected height on your cage.
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.
The cages can be covered with fleece over winter but would need extra pegs due to wind resistance.
The cages can be dismantled and stored easily when not in use.
