Thanks sotongeoff think they maight work better than bras as i dont know what cup size melons will get to. At the moment plants are in largish pots with 3 canes around and plants growing up.

I use hairnets. They expand to suit the size of the fruit. Found the cheapest in Wilko's

What not to use are the nets that I was given which came with the caterers packs of dried peas. My sister thought these would work , I tried them and my fruit rotted - they could not breath me thinks .The hairnets idea sounds good I am trying that this year!
