Made from UV stabilised heavy duty polyethylene, it incorporates a zipper in the design which lines up with the main Popadome Frame zipper, ensuring easy access to the protected growing area.
Insect Mesh Cover Only
A superb solution for the protection of your plants from smaller flying insects, this insect mesh netting cover fits easily over the top of the Popadome Frame (above). The fine 50gsm insect netting is made from 1mm mesh and stops pests such as carrot fly and cabbage root fly from damaging your plants. A zipper is incorporated in the design which lines up with the main Popadome Frame zipper, ensuring easy access to the protected growing area.
This is a very good product, my only gripe is the inability to buy replacement Butterfly netting separately. Why is this?
Many thanks for your feedback, we have passed your comments onto our Purchasing Dept. to look into the possibility of supplying the netting separately.
I have a 1.2m x 1.2m cover for some sensitive plants, both for winter and to keeps birds off the fruit. I have had to repair the elastic in one pole as it parted company (very difficult to re-thread) and the fleece cover only lasted one and a half winters, ripping in the wind. Possibly a good product, but I'm not too sure! The idea is good.

What to Buy - Plastic Greenhouses - Top Pick
This comes with glass fibre poles, an easy access zip and a copper strip along the base to deter slugs and snails. The netting allows access for pollinating insects. A plastic cover can be bought separately. Top Pick: Best for Versatility. This is a good product in itself for keeping out birds and butterflies, but if you add the polythene cover it is an effective mini-greenhouse too.
