Just slip the made-to-fit, ultra-fine 0.25mm x 0.8mm insect-mesh covers over the hoops, snap on the clips, ease the elasticated and reinforced hem around the sides of the bed and secure with supplied hooks.

Great Savings when buying complete Hoop and Cover Kits!
Bought two of these for my two raised beds in the polytunnel. They were very simple to install and fit. Now they are in place I have protection for my salad crops and for light frost and they are growing away well. I can cover them with an extra fleece if there is a chance of a heavy frost. They are quick to remove to provide access to the bed.
Very well made and robust product, used over a bed of salad veg which the sparrows were laying waste to .... a little unwieldy to put the cover on/off as the elastic fitting is pretty tight but then it needs to be.... Sparrows thwarted!
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.
- Heavy duty, galvanised and rust resistant steel hoops fit securely to the insides of the bed with the supplied brackets and screws. All hoops are 19mm diameter but heights vary according to width size
- 4ft long beds = 2 hoops
- 6ft long beds = 3 hoops
- 8ft long beds = 3 hoops
- Mesh Vented PVC cover lets you start growing earlier or extend the season. It combines strong, extra thick UV stabilised PVC with large zipped full width dual skinned PVC & insect-mesh panels on both sides. Unzip to reveal the insect-mesh panel or fully unzip and roll up for direct access.
- Insect-Mesh cover is a fine 0.25mm x 0.8mm mesh size to keep out the smallest of pests.
- UV stabilised for longevity, it allows air and water to circulate, provides shade and protects against weather elements - including mild frosts.
- Butterfly Net cover has a strong, soft and pliable 7mm knitted mesh size. Keeps out the Cabbage White Butterfly and birds too.
- All covers secure inside the bed with ground pegs (not supplied) except for the Insect-Mesh cover that eases round the bed, tightens with drawstring and secures to sides with supplied hooks.
