The popadome was easy and quick to assemble. Access through the side and an end is good as you can get at crops easily. I reserve my judgement on whether slugs and snails can bridge the copper strip as they can probably crawl underneath the edge so I have enveavoured to bury the edge with soil . It seems like pigeons cannot penetrate the netting.
A bit fiddly to assemble (although a high wind didn't help).When I checked a few days later it had half-collapsed, so I took it all down and did it again. It seems OK now.
I ordered 4 of these, they arrived within 2 days, even though I didn't pay for express delivery. Packaging was very secure. I'm delighted with my purchase as they assemble very quickly & fit perfectly over my metre square raised beds. On the advice of a friend, I made sure I bought the ones with zips for easy access. I'm debating whether to buy a few more!
