So what’s great about William James’ fruit and vegetable cages?

Why buy a fruit and vegetable cage?

You’ve given time, love and money to growing your chosen crop only for it to be destroyed by birds and animals. Is there anything more disheartening? The simple answer to avoid this is to invest in a quality cage.

You’ve planned your planting, tended it carefully in the early stages only to be left frustrated and demoralised as your appetite is whetting at the promised results. You may have tried covering your plants with various odd bits of netting, but this can be limited in its efficacy. Using fruit and vegetable cages has so many advantages with mouth watering results.

Hassle-free gardening

The convenience of simply walking into your protected fruit and vegetable patch will be a delight for you and the envy of friends and fellow growers. Can you imagine how others will feel when your crop survives pest attack whilst theirs has not?!

“ Just a thank you: The fruit cage came with very clear instructions, and was far easier to put up, even for a couple of pensioners, than I had expected. Brilliant! ”

Versatility controlled by you

The ability to extend your growing area as you see fit is a huge advantage. The wide range of William James accessories means you can easily add to the size of your cage as well as changing nets depending on the pests you wish to keep out. Different meshes can be used to keep birds, butterflies, rabbits and deer off your precious produce.

“The aluminium fruit cage is now up and ready for the growing season. This is a superb piece of kit; well made, easy to erect and delivered within a few days of order. I have already recommended this cage to several friends.”

Manufactured by hand in our UK factory

At William James, we are not only passionate about gardening but also the products we produce. This is why all our cages are produced by hand on home soil...

After 60 years of manufacturing fruit and vegetable cages we are confident in our ability to provide the best possible products to our customers. The manufacture of such high quality cages year after year can only be sustained by skilled and dedicated staff who take pride in the products that they offer to you. This quality is produced by hand in our Dorset factory.

Traditions handed down through the years

The consistent demand for our fruit and vegetable cages can be attributed to our insistence on good customer service, value for money and, above all, the undoubtedly high standard of the cages we create. We are able to maintain this level of service because the traditional skills, such as net making, have been handed down by those who have been a vital part of William James for many years.

Made to last

Of course other cages are available elsewhere. But will they be as durable, reliable and produced with such care as the ones that we send out from our home here in Dorset? We have included a few testimonials from satisfied customers, whom we thank for taking the trouble to contact us. If you decide to choose a fruit and vegetable cage from William James, we sincerely hope that you will be equally impressed.

“Having now erected and netted the cage we write to thank you for the very professional and helpful way in which you dealt with us from our first visit to your factory through to the delivery of our order. The finished cage looks and does everything that we expected and required which pays tribute to the quality of the components, the accuracy of manufacture and the ease of assembly. We are delighted with the outcome and would have no hesitation in recommending your Company to others.”

“I am writing to thank you for the fruit cage that was delivered a few days ago, and which I have today (in less than 1 hour!) erected on my allotment. I am not particularly practical so I was pleasantly surprised that the comprehensive instructions with diagrams were so easy to follow. Everything fitted together perfectly and the quality of the components is extremely good. The allotment is not level, so the method of inserting the uprights made it much easier to compensate for this than I had anticipated. I grew up in Bridport, so I am delighted that the old Gundry factory at North Mills continues to house quality businesses like William James, well done!”
