I use this product with canes and netting to make a cage for my peas. Although canes vary in diameter, it is easy to shave canes that are too large and to add wedges - maybe matches or shavings from large canes - if the cane's diameter is too small.
Absolutely perfect for all gardens, can be used in raised beds, garden boarders at the allotment. Brilliant design. I used the balls with bamboo poles and netting. Now I grow veg from seeds and get to see them mature and hopefully eat without any pesky birds, butterflies etc. The wildlife can have the rest of the garden.
I started using this product over 10 years ago complete with the steel poles but over the years I've found canes so much easier as you can adapt the height required to suit your plants. I now use them as weights by looping string through them and tying them with a slip knot to the netting so I can adjust the height in fact I can't manage without them.
