Choosing the Right Netting for Protecting My Crops
Like you, pests have a long term interest in delicious fruit and veg. This is why lasting crop protection can be a great investment.

Just lay the material flat over the bed, leaving enough slack to allow for the growth of your fruit or vegetables. Peg the edges securely into place or bury them in the soil to stop any enterprising pests sneaking underneath. Carrot fly, caterpillars, aphids, leaf miners, leek moth and many other bugs are blocked by the lightweight fabric.
