I think it really needs two people to set this up. I damaged the fabric with the poles trying to do it on my own. Skirt of the pops dome not quite flush with the ground.
I was tired of making cloches out of bits of water pipe that looked awful and kept collapsing, so I got two of these with all the covers and I'm so glad it did, they are fantastic! I found putting the first one up a bit tricky as you need a lot of space but once the fibre glass poles got over half way in it became easy. It looks very smart and is a great design it was easy to position and peg down but I'd advise getting the ground as level as possible so it's snug to the soil. Pegging it down was a breeze. The zipper door is marvellous and makes weeding, watering etc very easy. We have had windy weather and my plot gets a direct hit, but the dome has remained solid in position.. I expect it will be easier to put up the second one now I've done one. I am very pleased with my purchase. I think them excellent value especially as the two bundle with all the covers and will be getting more in due course. They are very well made and thought out . I'm glad I've abandoned my ugly diy collapsing hard to weed cloches (which were still costly in terms of materials to make them) for these,. They look great and are perfect for the job. I'm using them for brassicas ,which would be pecked to pieces by pigeons if grown uncovered.. If you'e thinking about it, don't hesitate to get some they are brilliant!
