Very useful but not quite sturdy enough
on 30 September 2012
I have found these types of cloche can be simply too expensive for what they are there to protect. But this one is a good make and good value. Not perfect as the ends have a sort of drawstring which is then gathered together and staked into the ground using the two supplied stakes but I have found these have broken after a few times the cloche was moved. So works best if you can plant, cover and leave and only remove when you harvest. But I find I was having to remove it to do weeding and the like and so the ends had to be regularly unstaked to allow the cloche to be removed. On one end the drawstring seemed to snap - on the other there is a sort of plastic gatherer that the drawstring loops through and that snapped. That all said would probably buy another but rethink the way of attaching the ends to the ground.
