I have several of these Popadomes - they save my young plants and more mature vegetables from the marauding pigeons and deter the cabbage whites. I'm not sure that they keep out all the slugs and snails, but that may be because I don't always lay the copper tape completely flat.
It keeps the pigeons off my brassicas and other fruit etc. I might buy some more at some juncture for some small fruit trees; at least the bees and other pollinating insects can get through the net. It does however keep the cabbage white butterflies out, which is more important. The only downside is the pigeons have hacked the copper beading at the base, trying to get access, but its withstood this damage well.
Harrod Popadomes are protecting my peas, beetroot, broccoli, chard, lettuce - in fact all kinds of seedlings which have in previous years been attacked by house sparrows, cabbage white butterflies, visiting cats looking for a toilet, slugs and snails. It has been so much easier, and more efficient than my earlier efforts with netting etc! And they look rather attractive too.
What The Press Say
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.

Popadome - The New Plant Protector - Insect mesh netting is a must for the vegetable garden throughout the growing year, but for winter protection a cloche or fleece is the answer. Popadome base net domes have three fitted accessory covers - fleece, cloche and fine insect mesh netting in two sizes. Each has an access zip in the cover which fits over the frame and is held into the ground with the same fixings pegs.
