Crop and plant protection are at the top of the list for many of the gardeners that we speak to. After putting the hard work in preparing and planting a plot, the last thing gardeners want is to have their work undone by pests or by the weather. We recognise this and have a great range of products to help keep your plants, fruit and vegetables safe until they are ready to harvest.
During the colder autumn and winter months the best way to protect your plot is by using garden fleeces. Garden fleeces are laid over crops to provide effective protection against the weather. Thicker garden fleeces can be used to protect against windy conditions and from frost. Lighter fleeces with small holes can be used in the spring and summer months. These give tender crops more opportunity to ripen and protect against pests and insects.
Crop tunnels can be used for plants and vegetables that are further on in their development. These are small curved structures and protect against birds and butterflies. We offer crop tunnels in both a netting version and a fleece version to ensure you can choose the best option for your plot.
Cold frames are another form of crop protection that are used to help seedings establish. Our timber cold frame is made from FSC timber. This timber is treated to ensure that is has a long-life and is protected against rot and other weather damage.
To complete our range of crop and plant protection we offer a small range of effective garden and allotment pest control products. Slug traps are a must as slugs can cause devastating damage very quickly. We have traps that can be used in the ground or on the ground. Bird spikes are an effective deterrent if you have ledges or walls in your plot that you need to protect.
