Black Modular Garden Hoops - Rods and Joiners
These black hoop pvc rods are all 900mm (2ft 11in) long and 10mm in diameter. They are half the length of our green hoops and two rods need to be joined together with a hoop connector to create one hoop.
This enables you to create tunnels with crossbars and other plant support structures, they are also easier to store when not in use.
The rods used to create the hoops are the same rods which are used for the crossbars, you just bend two rods slightly and connect them with a joiner to create your hoop.
Unlike our green hoops these do not come complete with anchors as these rods have multiple uses and may not be necessary. If you would like anchors click here anchors.
If two rods are connected together with a joiner, the finished hoop will be 1.8m in length and once bent, will stand approx 600mm (2ft) high and 1.2m (4ft) wide; they are flexible so this is just an example. In the main image we have used 5 rods, 4 anchors and two T connectors.
The hoops can go as narrow as 75cm wide and this will increase the height slightly.
Create your own tunnels and cover with netting during the summer and fleece during the winter.
To work out how much netting you require, use our netting/fleece calculator by putting in the height and length of your tunnel.
You will need two "half" hoops 900mm long plus one connector to create a hoop. Two anchors are also recommended but not essential, these will help your hoops keep their shape.
Need help with your netting size?
Put the height of the cage, tunnel or vegetable plot (crop height for plots) then the width and the length, then just hit calculate.
Result (Width and Length) : 13m X 12m
