Cloche Wire Hoops
« on: May 02, 2019, 15:00 »
Hi,

Looking to build my own clotches.

Thickest wire i can get hold is 2.5mm

Does this sound thick enough to span a meter wide and meter tall?

I use blue water pipe cut into lengths for the supporting arches for net and insect mesh tunnels.  That would be strong enough to hold plastic over that span.

You just stretch the cover over the pipes and weigh down the ends and edges with some bricks.
