Our biggest Cloche /Tunnel Kit yet. No tools needed to install this growing tunnel. Builds a 4-5 metre long tunnel.
Supplied with 3 giant galvanised steel hoops, 4m wide and 8m long Micronet cloth. (frost protection, keeps crops warmer, keeps heavy rain and hail out, bird and animal proof.)
Strong and taut with our Unique 'ASCOT' Cloche Net Clips to hold cloth onto the 3 x Giant
hoops, and secured with our strong anchor end pins.
Approximately 1.70 tall and hoops 1.5-2.4m wide, (you can stretch them, or squeeze them to stay at 1.5m width) they provide excellent cover & protection for taller crops, or enable you to have 2 large beds with a central walkway, just lots of room really, Some are able to walk underneath these hoops.
We enjoy being able to leave this kit up all year round, maybe change the netting to bird netting in summer, and just undo one end and walk into tunnel to work on plants. We use 4 metre width micronet cloth 3/4 of the year, and 5m wide commercial grade canopy bird netting in summer on this cloche.
We wanted to keep this kit under $200 and have supplied 3 hoops, but we suggest purchasing one more giant hoop to make a slightly longer tunnel, or space the hoops closer together to avoid sagging cloth. The 8m length cloth will make a 4 metre length tunnel.
This Kit Comes with 3 x Galvanised steel hoops; Micronet cloth - 4 metre
width x 8 metre length; 15 x Ascot Net Clips; 2 x Ascot Anchor end Pins; 12 x Side pins. This Micronet cloth will give Frost protection (2 degree), Protect crops from strong wind, heavy rain/hail. This cloth is permeable to air and water, so no need to take the cloth off to water. Keeps
white butterfly out if pinned down securely. You can just release the end anchor pin, pull the cloth up and over the first hoop and walk into this tunnel.
Creates a micro-climate area for extending growing season. Good for keeping birds and animals off the garden, and ensures you get to enjoy the produce.
We can supply this kit with commercial grade bird netting, if you prefer bird netting over micronet cloth - just put in the comments box when ordering that you require bird netting, or phone us.
We find this a handy cloche size to leave up in the garden all year round. Easy to work on the plants (as you just release anchor end pin and pull cloth up and over the first hoop) it is easy and quick to fit the cloth, clips and anchor pins. We have used this cloche in high winds (very windproof, like all our cloche sizes)
Made in NZ of Pre-galvanised Tensile steel that comes with a 10 year non rust away guarantee.
