The cloches are working well. They were a bit fiddly to put together but my only disappointment is the end panels. These panels are rather flimsy and fall out when I pick up the cloche. I have discarded these and use some old slates to cover the ends.
This is a 2 man job to assemble! The metal edges are very sharp. Once done it does a good job.
Good basic design, with strong frame. Corrugated plastic only fit well one way. The end panels fall out when the cloche is moved, and they are a fiddle to put in and several attempts needed to get the cloche in place with the end panels where they should be. I may glue them in, but have resisted as that will create a storage problem. Once in place this is a good cloche.
