indeed Tim, that is the only way in. i have started shoring up the edges with soil.  i wish i had bought the three meter width; my psb is a good meter high now and i will have to uncover it. not too worried about the butterflies now but the pigeons.....

it does diffuse the light a bit i am sure but my brassicas seem to do fine under it; it doesnt seem to be a problem at all. i will try and find a pic and work out how to post it.

Much the same as greenhouse shading - & everything seems to flourish under that?

mood i'm in tonight, he'd not get his boots off ...........

shame there's no-one in the house but me and a bottle of rose !  (to which I've added some blended homegrown blueberries and strawberries - bloody lovely i tell thee).

methinks this should gravitate to the watershed!

I have made a fruit cage with debris netting. Its ideal. If you know any scaffolders or anyone that works on a building site, its worth asking if they have some you can have or buy.  We managed to buy a huge roll of it for much less than you can get in the shops.

How do bees get in to pollinate the fruit?

We left a door way flap so we could get in /out of the caged area. They must of got in through there. Or maybe they get through the mesh.
Only problem is its bright blue, bit of an eyesore really. Does the job though!
Keeps the birds away from the berries.

This is the blokes next door but one  to me .He grows soft fruit in this poly tunnel frame covered with debris netting ..Front is left open till bees have done their job then he puts it on to keep birds out when the  fruit is ripening.  Bees etc can't get through the net if cage is shut up..



This would be high enough for your sprouts and PSB Tim  :)

Well, mine has just arrived and I cannot see it throwing down any more shade than any similarly guaged netting.  Looks good stuff too.  Just off to post positive feedback on e-bay ;D

thought I'd bring it back to the top, there's another seller on ebay, they have 2m and 3 metre wide rolls, I've sent off to ask how much for 3m..you can buy 50m rolls and 25m..not a bad price for 2metre wide  ;D

Does the netting 'run' or fray when cut?

When I cut it it did not fray.  Still minded to hem it though.
