Garden Pest Mesh
« on: January 03, 2013, 08:23 »
I want to be prepared for the dreaded leaf minor and other insects this season and would appreciate any tips on the best type and prices for mesh. So far I have found this to be the cheapest

Has anyone used this ?

Thanks.

I've got a different version but that looks as though it will do the job  :)
I try to take one day at a time, but sometimes several days all attack me at once...

I bought some years ago through Harrod Horticultural:

Have a look to compare the prices - don't forget to factor in any P&P.  :)

I 'inherited' some of this when I moved 3.5 years ago & it's still going strong.

This is what I use and also buy from Gardening naturally.  I either use it loose, over pot topped canes and weighed down with bricks or I staple it to wooden cloche frames I make.  Either way, it works very well and also provides some frost protection too.

I have just checked that link, and the price includes VAT.

Commercial suppliers you do have to watch out for the VAT increase, yes good point.

Or this,
http://www.plasticsbypost.co.uk/insect-netting---2m-wide-149-c.asp

Bought some from these chaps some years ago. It's still ok. They kindly sent out some small samples to make sure it was what I wanted.
