The Harrod Slot & Lock® Aluminium Vegetable Cage Kits with Fitted Butterfly Net Covers save valuable gardening time and effort when protecting your home grown vegetable crops; not only is the Harrod Slot and Lock® and aluminium tubing framework easy and quick to assemble, but our exclusive Fitted Covers mean no more wrestling with ungainly sections of netting!
Create the 1.2m high vegetable cage by simply slotting the long lasting, non-rusting 16mm diameter aluminium tubing framework into the hi-tech matt black superior nylon plastic slot and lock connectors before easing a soft knitted 7mm mesh butterfly netting cover over the top, pegging it securely in the soil (pegs not supplied but our ground pegs fit the bill perfectly!).
These covers are a perfect fit - a real time saver for accessing or closing up the plot and they look incredibly neat too. The butterfly net cover is complete with stitched seams, making it easy to pull on and off the frame as one piece.
The Aluminium Vegetable Cage Kits with Fitted Butterfly Net Covers are available in three sizes and have been designed to fit inside our Timber Raised Beds - you’ll find the bed sizes listed below - but there’s no reason why the vegetable cage kits and fitted covers can’t be used in open ground too.
Flexibility in the garden is key and that’s why we’ve made the Harrod Slot and Lock® Aluminium Vegetable Cages with Fitted Butterfly Net Covers available separately as well as in kit form; purchase the framework and covers on their own or go for the kit options!

Although the quality of this product was acceptable and with 2 people it was relatively simple to assemble the design lets it down. Considering it is designed to fit the raised beds it was a little small but my main problem is the design of the net. The net fits snuggly to the cage which means access is difficult, the bottom of the net can't just be rolled up, you pretty much have to lift up the entire net. Also due to the snug fit, pegs to hold the net down are essential to ensure there are no gaps around the bottom but the recommended pegs are too fat and have a tendency to rip the net. Plenty of pegs are needed to ensure insects can't get under the net, which means when you want access you need to take all the pegs out and then some how manoeuvre the net upwards. So this is a good product provided you don't want easy access to what is underneath.
Thank you for your review and really appreciate the feedback. This is a popular product for us and we have not been made aware of these issues before. We will forward this to our design team to look into.
I purchased similar cages 7 or 8 years ago and they are still going strong, and I needed more for this coming season. Without hesitation I contacted Harrods again and placed another order! Not cheap but well worth the money!
