The New Popadome Fruit Tree cover is exclusively available to us, can be erected easily in minutes and offers your fruit trees protection from birds.
The Popadome Fruit Tree protection cover is UV stabilised comes with 10mm square mesh and is easily erected by fitting the fibreglass poles together that feed through a sleeve in the netting.
The pole is anchored to the ground and the top end bends over the tree allowing the netting to be draped around. A cord is attached to the zip access which can be pulled to close up the netting and a drawstring around the base allows the bottom of the netting to be closed and drawn in towards the pole.
- Fruit Tree covers provide complete protection from birds
- Fibreglass poles easily fit together and UV stabilised 10mm square mesh netting
- Supplied with a handy carry bag and can be repacked when not in use
- Approx. 3.5m High x 2.6m Diameter
- The pole is anchored to the ground with an 8" tent peg
- The cover also uses the tree for support and there is a draw string round the base to draw in any loose net material
- Note: You may lose some fruit to the birds if the netting is allowed to rest on the fruit
You stocked just what I needed. Didn't know it existed! Quick delivery. The popadome did just what it said on the pack. I enjoyed my cherry harvest, the birds didn't get any. Dome packed away well ready for next year. Result!
We have lost severals crops of cherries to birds and fleece or netting held in place with clothes pegs did not work so when the popadome apperared we thought we would give it a try. It came well packed in its own case and the netting is substantial. Our problem is the tree is old quite large and definately not standard tree shaped and it also has a hedge very close. The popadome was finaly fitted over the tree and the cord tied around the trunk. The support pole does hold the dome away from the tree but it kept coming apart as we were manouvering the dome, we also have not used the ground pegs. The cherries are coming along nicely receiving good sunlight through the mesh. I just hope the wasps decide to stay outside.
The 2 nets were for 2 trees, a pear and a plum, the pear was simple if slightly tricky to fit as it was a lollipop type tree - the need to have 3 hands during the fit to hold it and pull the zipper closed was a challenge but the net size was OK The plum was slightly bigger and required a bit of surgery to fit the net and the closure at the bottom was difficult to get a seal (I padded it with some spare netting to get a better closure). The need to hold it and pull the zip was again a challenge. Sounds like a bad review but these are way better than the ad-hoc approach with nets and clothes pegs I used to have so I consider this a good buy
