I've had other tunnels, and the sparrows usually wriggle under the edges meaning I had to pin all along, which made it difficult to access for weeding and harvesting. This product has a tape around the base which seems to stop the pesky sparrows, and the zip makes it easier to access without having to remove the whole tunnel. Wish the tape was a little wider (like the domes), just to be sure.
We bought this product after losing all our kale plants wihin 24 hours when the pigeons had descended en masse to leave only stalks. That was after clouds of cabbage white butterflies had flocked to them to lay their eggs. This product is excellent for protecting strawberry plants from the eager birds, but not quite tall/rigid enough as we had expected to allow the kale to grow to its normal height before stopped by the cover netting..
