We have four types of netting available in various widths and lengths.
Netting is essential in orchards and in polytunnels as well. There is nothing more devastating than tending to your orchard and patiently waiting for the fruit to ripen only to have a flock of birds swoop in and consume your profits. Polytunnel netting keeps the birds out so you can pick your fruit at harvest time without the worry of damaged fruit. We have a range of shade netting that can also prevent the blistering sun from scorching your crops and all the accessories you need to secure the netting.

HOW DO YOU PROTECT A POLYTUNNEL FROM WIND?
Many experts will tell you that the best way to protect a polytunnel from wind is to create a windbreak close to your polytunnel. You can plant trees or a hedge as these are the best ways to slow the advancing winds. Polytunnel netting can also be useful, especially when you add this as part of your polytunnel ventilation. When wind can pass through unhindered, it is less likely to cause damage to your polytunnel.
HOW DO I KEEP BIRDS OUT OF MY POLYTUNNEL?
It's almost impossible to keep birds out of your garden which is why most people decide to construct a polytunnel. However, birds often find their way into polytunnels as well. It's important to keep your polytunnel well ventilated, especially during those hot summer days so this usually means you need to lift the sections on the sides or leave the doors open. To keep the birds out you can add a polytunnel netting screen to the sides and doors which allows fresh air in while keeping the birds out.
