Great for keeping the insects off your brassicas and carrots etc. Harrod Horticultural give the best price I can find on the internet and provide an excellent service and quick delivery. 4 stars only for the product. Because, the product is difficult to work with due to the loose weave: the piece you get is never cut square; it frays along any cut edge; the 1.35mm weave is not uniform and is easy to make bigger/smaller; and it is not environmentally friendly if only used for one or two years if you handle it carefully. And as others suggest, a coloured thread weaved across the width to aide straight cutting would be beneficial. After much experimentation, (I have tried welding it with an iron and a soldering iron, folding it and pressing it, sewing it etc etc) I have found that you can use a contact adhesive to seal edges to be cut and thus preventing them from fraying. Simply paint the glue along the line to be cut, about 1cm wide, then allow to dry and cut down the line of glue. You can also glue a piece onto another to mend a hole. I can now cut pieces and attach them to wooden frames which I have made modular with removable lids to allow easy access for weeding, harvesting etc - no more lifting the whole net just to weed or harvest. I can join several frames together to cover different size areas. Also, these and can be flat packed and stored safely without causing damage to the mesh and so last for many years use. Finally another seller Gardening naturally) sells brilliant clips to hold the net in place without making any holes in the net - very worth while.
Very good product, the only thing that would be helpful would be some eyelets to be able to secure it better
