This is the sixth Popadome we have bought over the last three years, no problems , very durable easy to move around the garden, when not in use easily stored.
This is the second popadome that I have purchased. They are easy to erect and to move around on your allotment . The big plus is that you can stand up inside the popadome. Because of the vegetables that I grew inside the popadome ( broccoli) it stood outside over the winter in all weathers. After three seasons the zip pulled away from the netting in places and the netting generally became fragile. It was finally ripped to shreds in the recent storms. However , for me, three seasons use is reasonable and some sort of crop cover is essential on my allotment as we are plagued by pigeons and jackdaws. I have purchased a mesh cover from Harrods and put this over the old popadome frame work. So now I have two popadomes to use. All in all very satisfied and I must say the customer service from Harrods is first class.
