Veggiemesh Insect Netting for Vegetables
Covering fruit and vegetables with Veggiemesh® insect mesh netting will protect your crops from a range of insect pests, birds, rabbits and the weather.
Veggiemesh® will keep out a wide range of garden pests including cabbage root fly, carrot fly, cabbage white butterfly, pea moth, leek moth, cutworm, onion fly, leaf miners and many species of aphids.
Vegetables may be covered all the year round, from planting right up until harvest. If you are growing fruit, just lift the netting during flowering if the crop depends on pollination by bees.
Veggiemesh® can be laid directly over the bed or over any hoops or cage. One thing to note if you are laying the mesh directly over the bed, is to allow enough slack for the growth of the crop. Once the netting has been draped over, just bury the edges and secure with pegs, ensuring there are no gaps.
Mesh size:1.35mm. Light passage = 90% and air passage = 95%. The weight is approx. 55gms/sq.m. Yarn Thickness is 0.24mm.
Cover plants or seeds immediately after planting or sowing (ensure plants are free from insect pests) and leave covered until harvest. Always allow enough slack for the plants to grow, the edges can be buried or secured with pegs ensuring there are no gaps
Watering/Feeding: Just water and feed through the netting.
Cutting: Veggiemesh can be cut with scissors
Care: Veggiemesh can be washed on a "wool" cycle in the washing machine. It should last at least 10 years
Note: Remove during flowering if crops depend on pollination by bees
