Hi again, i thought i would pass this on just in case anyone has not seen them being used, lots of our allotmentears are useing the blue water pipe from builders merchants to suport there netting for protection, the pipe is very strong and pushes into the soil in a half hoop type thing then covered with mesh or net ,very easy to use and lasts forever, i dont know how to put a phote on here sorry our allotment looks like a blue ocean but everybody is happy with them, hope this is usefull to new gardeners and the owner we now has a bee hive at the end of the gardens,
The water pipe used is called MDPE or Blue Poly, it comes in an array of diameters 20mm, 25mm and 32mm. It is very strong and durable and can be brought from nearly all builders merchants or county stores.
