3.0 out of 5 stars Large Fruit Cage, 20 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Easy to put together providing one takes ones time and reads, thoroughly, the diagrammatic instructions. Easy to get the various brackets the wrong way round but very easy to rectify errors. Far too much netting and it is this area I foubd disappointing. For what I paid for this item I would have expected at fitted net. As it is I have several square metres of unwanted netting (in length) and only just about enough in width to go ground to ground over the cage. Heavy duty ground spikes would be handy also. My plot is exposed and I suspect in high winds the cage would take off..

3.0 out of 5 stars For use as a small cage for fruit bushes., 17 May 2014
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Slightly disappointed in this product. I unpacked the contents and then checked them against the packing.instruction(?) sheet and found I had 8 No 5 and 4 No 6 pieces rather than 4 and 8 respectively. In the end not a real problem as, like all gardeners, I managed to bodge the frame together. This meant though the netting (supplied in three pieces, didn't quite fit so, again I had to bodge. The side netting was not deep enough to reach from the top bars to ground level ( I had the cage set on its tallest setting so I had to attached a piece of spare netting I had to completely seal off the sides. Consequently I had to use my own ties to join the two bits of netting together as the 40 supplied were not sufficient. I am sure, on a show plot, this cage would have looked very good but my allotment is anything but a show site as it is on stony, rough soil that is difficult to work at the best of times. Nevertheless, it is up and looking reasonably OK but I am going to need some heavy duty pegs to make sure the cage does not take off in any strongish wind!

I bought these items to hold my washing line base in place (pegged into very chalky soil) and they have been exact;ly what was required. I am going to order another pack so I can put them around my small netting frames in the garden.

4.0 out of 5 stars No more flats, 11 May 2013
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
Since I have bought and used this product I can, actually, carry my laptop with me without having to worry about flat batteries! The product seems to be doing what it was bought for; with my rate of usage it seems to be lasting nearly three hours before the warning lights appear. Good ptoduct.

If you don't understand English as it is spoken in the UK you will not undestand this book as it is full of puns, double puns and other plays on words. Pythonesque in concept it owes a lot to the surrealism also of The |oons

This review is from: Guernica (Kindle Edition)
I read this book many years ago but needed to re=read it for a book club review. The characters are a littel two dimensional but the story, based on fact, is interesting.
