Great Savings on Hoop & Cover Kits
Transform your vegetable-laden raised beds into an efficient mini-greenhouse with the minimum of effort, prolong your growing season and even ventilate summer crops without compromising on crop protection with our Fitted Hoops and Mesh Vented PVC Covers double act - one that garden pests certainly won't find amusing!
The 19mm diameter galvanised tubular steel hoops fit securely inside our wooden raised beds with supplied brackets and screws and give either 54cm (21") or 104cm (41") of growing height - the former for 60cm (2ft) wide beds and the greater size for 1.2m (4ft) beds and upwards.
Available in eight size options, the hoops firmly support the UV stabilised extra thick, heavy-duty PVC covers, complete with full-width insect-mesh ventilation for the summer months to keep pests out and let rain in.
Please note: 6ft x 6ft cover and 6ft x 8ft cover are currently out of stock.
The clear PVC traps heat and shields plants from the elements to extend the growing season and access couldn't be simpler thanks to the large-zipped, dual-skinned PVC/insect mesh panels that roll up and down on both sides. We've also got Fitted Butterfly Net and Insect Mesh Covers for complete raised bed crop protection but don't let your raised beds have all the fun; although designed for use in our beds and with both our Standard and Superior Raised Bed Tables, the Fitted Hoops and Mesh Vented PVC Covers are equally at home in open ground.
Designed to fit inside Raised Bed sizes: 0.6m x 1.2m (2ft x 4ft); 0.6m x 1.8m (2ft x 6ft); 0.6m x 2.4m (2ft x 8ft); 1.2m x 1.2m (4ft x 4ft); 1.2m x 1.8m (4ft x 6ft): 1.2m x 2.4m (4ft x 8ft); 1.8m x 1.8m (6ft x 6ft) and 1.8m x 2.4m (6ft x 8ft)

Hoops incredibly easy to fit. Protection cover was a bit more tricky to pull over the hoops but is stable and does what it is meant to do. OK getting to the middle of either side of the bed but just a bit of a stretch to reach into the ends - how about a voucher code for some Yoga classes?
with this cover, you can create a small, raised greenhouse. The zipped panels operate smoothly and open either to reveal mesh panels, giving ventilation, but stopping the bugs getting in, or alternatively fully open to provide good access. Inevitably, there are corners which are less easy to get at, but this is a quibble. Assembling the kit was straightforward, though as i bought a kit of a size to only partially cover my raised bed (leaving some open to the elements, it would have been useful to have measurements for how far apart to place the supports (is basically tells you to put them in the corners, which is fine if you are covering the whole raised bed) The overall structure seems sturdy, but i took the additional precaution of screwing the sides to the timber of my raised bed, as I felt the ground pegs provided zero tethering...winds have been severe of late; apart from making it a bit more hassle to take the cover back off, I think this makes the cover very secure and would recommend others do this. A couple of washers and screws do the job!
I am really pleased with these covers, and have just acquired a second. They are much more pleasing on the eye than normal PVC sheeting and seem to be doing the job as we seem to be growing things despite the weather. The covers are quite heavy and are a two man job to put over the frames, but are of good quality. Delivery as always was prompt.
All our Hoop & Cover Kits neatly fit our range of raised beds, and the 3 covers - PVC/Mesh, Butterfly Netting and Insect Mesh - provide year round protection for your crops.
